You may have heard last week that Jacaré (Ronaldo Souza) will likely be defending his middleweight title against Robbie Lawler on the yet to be finalized January 29, 2011 Strikeforce card.  Today it was announced that IBJJF World Champion Roger Gracie will face a guy called Trevor Prangley on that same card.  Even though Strikeforce is the minor leagues according to Dana White, it's great to see our jiu jitsu elite fighting semi-high-level MMA (and wining). 

Now, we here at DSTRYRsg know as much about Trevior Prangly as you do about open the Tornado Guard, which to say, little or nothing.  But, that's OK.  It's Roger.  We're pretty confident that, as long as he avoids getting knocked out (which he's done so far), we're likely to see another fool get choked out.  We know that's biased, but this is DSTRYRsg and we do a lot of that here. 

Jiu jitsu.

As and aside, Strikeforce also announced today that 2004 Judo Olympian and anti-pussy training guru, Rhadi Ferguson will grace the cage at Srikeforce Challengers 13 (January 7, 2011).  We're looking forward to a display of Rhadi's "cut from a different cloth" fighting stylings. 


  1. Do you seriously not know who Trevor Prangley is?
    The guy's been a journeyman LHW pro for a decade.

  2. Hey, Anonymous:

    Yes, we know who Trevor is. We've seen him fight before.

    We were just being flippant in pumping up Roger (plus, we really wanted to make that joke about the Tornado Guard).

  3. Wow!

    Trevor Prangley is no 'tomato can.' I've seen him give opponents some serious trouble even though it was in events like Bodog and earlier UFCs.

    I don't know about this one, but I would have to give the nod to Prangley.

  4. C'mon, TLMGTG! Prangley no joke, but neither was Randelman. I think RG's got this one.

    Let's make a gentlemen's bet!

  5. I disagree with you about Randelman. He hasn't been the same for a long time.

    I'll take you up on that bet!
