“King” Kevin Casey will have the toughest task of his MMA career ahead of him. On May 21, in Portland, he will face off against Olympic medalist Matt Lindland in the main event of Strikeforce Challengers.

Casey specializes in Jiu-Jitsu, a style he has been practicing with Rickson Gracie for a long time. But the thing that most grabs attention is that he’s a hip hop singer. He recently recorded the single “No Surrender”.

With three wins and one loss on his record, he made his Strikeforce debut in November of 2009, when he submitted Chad Vance with a rear-naked choke.

Lindland needs no introduction. Besides being an Olympic silver medalist, he has faced fighters of the caliber of Fedor Emelianenko, Murilo Bustamante, Vitor Belfort and Ricardo Cachorrão, among others.
