Following in the footsteps of other K-1 greats Mirko Cro Cop, Semmy Schilt and Mark Hunt, Ray Sefo will be making his U.S. MMA debut against former UFC veteran Kevin Jordan at Strikeforce’s Challengers event on September 25th.

Sefo moved to the United States to further his MMA training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas and was victorious in his only MMA bout against Min Soo Kim at K-1 Hero’s 2.

Jordan is probably best known for his loss to Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 56 in a bout that was certainly not a crowd pleaser until Gonzaga knocked Jordan out with only 39 ticks left in the fight.

Tim Kennedy will take on Zak Cummings in what is currently being promoted as the main event of the evening. The card will take place in Tulsa, Oklahoma and former WWE diva Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria) will also be in attendance.
