Tim Kennedy recently said he would like to prove his skills against Roger Gracie. Well, it appears if Strikeforce wants to make the match, Gracie is down.
“I guess it can be an interesting fight,” said Gracie, in a recent interview with Tatame.com. “Anyone in Strikeforce would do an interesting fight with me.”
Gracie made his debut at middleweight with a recent victory over Keith Jardine. On the same card, Kennedy lost to Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.
“He can say whatever he wants,” Gracie said. “He can be good on the ground, but technically I’m much better. In a jiu-jitsu match, he probably wouldn’t have a chance against me.”
Gracie has won several world titles in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, while Kennedy is a former military veteran.
