Kyra Gracie negotiating with Strikeforce

by Guilherme Cruz | source:

Four-time BJJ World Champion and two-time ADCC gold-medalist, Kyra Gracie will compete at ADCC’s 2011 in England in September, but is also planning to enter MMA, as reported by multiple Brazilian sources.

Once her submission grappling endeavor is out of the way, Robson Gracie’s grandaughter will likely venture into the territory where, as the master would put it, daughters cry and their mothers aren’t there to see - MMA.

In the audience at yesterday’s Clube da Luta event, where her grandfather made a speech, Kyra confirmed that she’s been considering offers from a few MMA promotions.

“It’s true, I’m negotiating to do a fight at a big event in Singapore, where I’m heading to train some at Evolve. I’m dying to make my MMA debut,” remarked Kyra, who has also heard offers linked to Strikeforce.

“I’ve been training Boxing and Judo. It’s something that can happen too. I already received some proposals and I know MMA is becoming bigger.

"They (Strikeforce) contacted me, invited me. I also received a proposal from Japan,” Gracie told “IG”. “We’re negotiating, setting some things with them (Strikeforce). Let’s say that, if I already had a contract, I’d be ready to fight today."

Kyra Gracie would probably fight at Strikeforce’s welterweight division, ruled by Marloes Coenen.

Being in the company of Jose Aldo seems to make her happy.

Why does someone have to "seem mean" when not fighting to be an elite fighter ? Since when is being a high level BJJ fighter about "being mean" ?Would you have been convinced if she was mean mugging like that chick from fast and the Furious while sporting a colored mohawk and cyborg-like tattoos ?
