After suffering his first loss to Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal, Roger Gracie will drop down to middleweight and face Keith Jardine at a yet-to-be-announced Strikeforce event in July. Gracie is 4-1 in his career.

MMAFighting.com confirmed both the fight and the event with two sources. The official date is unknown, but it seems set to take place in Portland, Oregon.

Jardine (17-10-2) lost to Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold earlier this year. Jardine is a former UFC competitor.

Rockhold and Tim Kennedy are expected to be the main event for the card, with Rockhold's title on the line.
