Cesar Gracie hasn’t been shy about criticizing the game-plan of Jackson’s MMA fighters in the past, and following the team’s performance at Saturday’s Strikeforce event, the renowned trainer took another shot at the decorated team.

Speaking via his official Twitter account, Gracie said:

Cali sends a certain team from New Mexico home winless tonight at 0-3. Dancing with the stars don’t cut it here

To which, the official Jackson Twitter account replied:

There was some confusion that we went 0-3 lst night.Bad night at work, but for those of u that can’t count @adlanamgov did get a win

Derek Brunson, Sarah Kaufman, Julie Kedzie and Adlan Amagov fought for Jackson’s MMA Saturday, and only the aforementioned Amagov earned a win by stopping Keith Berry.

Kaufman was quickly submitted by bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who has spent time training with the Cesar Gracie camp.

Brunson was knocked out in impressive fashion by former middleweight champ Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza while Kedzie was tapped out in the third round by Miesha Tate.

The August 18th “Rousey vs. Kaufman” event was hosted by San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center.
