Roger Gracie was successful in his middleweight debut, following a dominant unanimous decision victory over UFC-veteran Keith Jardine at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Kennedy. Gracie dropped weight classes after suffering his first professional loss, a devastating first round knockout loss to Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in September of last year.
