Roger Gracie, who just turned twenty-nine years old last week, now knows who next he will face in MMA and when.

His next challenge will be December 4 against Mike Kyle in the Strikeforce cage.

The current three-time absolute world champion of Jiu-Jitsu will fight in the light heavyweight division aiming for his fourth MMA win – he has three submissions on his record: one armbar from the guard and two rear-naked chokes, against Ron Waterman, Yuki Kondo and Kevin Randleman.

Now Mike, a kickboxer from Idaho, has 25 fights and 17 wins, the last coming by way of rear-naked choke.

Tall and with a long reach similar to Roger, the American lost to Fabricio Werdum via guillotine in August, 2009. He holds wins over Rafael Feijão, TK Kohsaka and Wes Sims.
