Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante to return either January or February 2010

Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante will most likely return to the Strikeforce cage, either January or February next year, hoping to put his debuted loss against former champion, Josh Thomson behind him.

The fighters manager, Alex Davis, speaking to MMAWeekly.com, said:

“I’ve heard from Strikeforce that he’ll probably be fighting in January or February. They didn’t have enough space on the December card. JZ had been awhile without fighting. He took the fight in Japan in which he did well, he fought real safe, and then it took a little while for him to catch speed in that fight. The third round (against Thomson) that was really JZ. I think if we see another fight against Josh Thomson, that’s the fight we will end up seeing.”

“JZ wants a rematch. I don’t think AKA or Josh Thomson would want to give him an immediate rematch cause they want (Gilbert) Melendez, so JZ is just going to have to go and beat somebody else up and get another chance at him. It will happen, he’ll get it.”
