The card for the August 21 Strikeforce show in Houston just received three reinforcements from Gracie Barra. The undefeated Chad “Robo” Robichaux (8w, 0l) returns to the cage, but the biggest surprise is the promotional debut of the master at GB Houston, Vinicius, “Draculino” Magalhães. Rounding out the GB delegation is Adam Schindler (7w, 1l), a student of Robo’s.
The Strikeforce event is to take place at Houston’s Toyota Center, and is headlined by two title bouts: Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal (7w, 0l) defending his light heavyweight title against Rafael “Feijão” Cavalcante (9w, 2l), and Ronaldo “Jacaré” (12w, 2l) versus Tim Kennedy (12w, 2l) for the vacant middleweight title.
