Tim Kennedy took his loss to Luke Rockhold for the Strikeforce middleweight title recently pretty hard. Yet, it appears that Kennedy has his eyes set on a new foe: Roger Gracie.
“I read (Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker) said (Roger Gracie) was the best grappler in Strikeforce,” Kennedy wrote on Twitter Monday. “I would love to prove that is not the case.”
Kennedy (14-4) was handed a decision defeat to Rockhold earlier this month. It was the second time he has failed to secure the Strikeforce belt.
Gracie (5-1) recently made his debut at middleweight, moving down from the 205-pound division. He defeated Keith Jardine on the same card as Rockhold-Kennedy.
