Roger Gracie’s (5-1) future beyond January’s Strikeforce card remains blurred. It was recently announced that Gracie will take on Anthony Smith (17-8).
“There were plans to fight on this card, as it will be the last edition of Strikeforce, and after that, I do not know when I will return to fighting,” said Gracie to TATAME.
Gracie fought most of his short MMA career in Strikeforce. He is 3-1 for them since joining in 2010. He entered as a light heavyweight and in his last fight made a successful middleweight debut. Smith is 2-1 for Strikeforce and currently has a three fight win streak going this year.
The final Strikeforce show takes place January 12 and airs on Showtime.
