According to MMA Opinion, middleweights Roger Gracie and Anthony Smith will be part of January’s Strikeforce: Champions card. The event takes place January 12 from Oklahoma City.
Gracie (5-1) earned a win over Keith Jardine earlier this year after deciding to move down from light heavyweight. He suffered his first professional defeat against former Strikeforce 205-pound champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, prompting the decision to change weight classes.
Smith is 17-8 in his MMA career, including two wins in three Strikeforce fights.
