Tim Kennedy has a tough challenge this Saturday, at UFC 162.
His debut in the most prestigious MMA event in the world will be against Jiu-Jitsu superstar Roger Gracie.
Fighting a grappling ace is not news to Kennedy, who has a 15-4 overall record.
In August 2010, he went the distance in a Strikeforce 5-round title match against Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza, losing by unanimous decision.
That fight is on Gracie’s mind, who even mentioned it during an exclusive interview he gave GRACIEMAG.com this week.
So lets review the battle between Kennedy and Jacaré.
