New Strikeforce lightweight, Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante appears to be set for his promotional debut in the next 60-90 days. CEO, Scott Coker revealed that the Brazilian was original set to face Josh Thomson on June 26th but declined do to insufficient time.

Scott Coker, speaking to MMAWeekly.com, said:

“We signed him and we offered him the fight on this card that just happened. I don’t think he felt he could be ready in time, and some other things were going on with him, so he didn’t fight. I think we’ll probably have him fight (in) 60 days, 90 days. He’s a tremendous talent.”
