A member of the Gracie family will fight on the upcoming Strikeforce card in New Jersey as Igor Gracie has been tapped to face John Salgado in an undercard bout for the Feb 12 show.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Gracie’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz from Dominance MMA.

Gracie (2-2) enters the fight in New Jersey after taking all of 2010 off. Working with the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City, Gracie is not ready to come back and put the layoff behind him.

Facing Gracie in New Jersey will be John Salgado (4-4-1) making his Strikeforce debut. Salgado last fought local fighter Chris Liguori in November 2010, losing by decision.

The bout between Gracie and Salgado will be part of the undercard for the featured bouts which will showcase all heavyweights, including the start of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix.
