Strikeforce Challengers is officially heading to Kent, Washington with a card on Friday, June 24 with Caros Fodor and James Terry headlining the show.
As first reported by MMAWeekly.com, Fodor headlines the card in his native state of Washington as he takes on Cung Le student James Terry. Both fighters are known for high intensity fights, and this one should be no different.
Ryan Couture, son of recently retired UFC hall of famer Randy Couture, will make his return to action at the Strikeforce Challengers show as well as he faces undefeated prospect Matt Ricehouse.
After a successful amateur career, Couture made his move to the pro side and has gone 2-0 thus far and will try to make it three in a row in June.
A light heavyweight match-up is also scheduled for the Challengers card pitting Lorenz Larkin against Gian Villante. Larkin comes into the fight with a perfect 10-0 record and made a successful Strikeforce debut with a TKO win over Chuck Liddell prodigy Scott Lighty.
Villante drops down to his natural weight class of 205lbs after being stopped by Chad Griggs in his lone Strikeforce appearance in February.
Former UFC and Shark Fights middleweight Danillo Villefort will also fight on the Strikeforce card against Antwain Britt.
Villefort has been on a strong run lately, winning his last four fights in a row including victories over Joey Villasenor and Matt Horwich.
The final fight announced by Strikeforce for the June card features a hard hitting women’s fight pitting Muay Thai wrecking machine Germaine De Randamie against Julia Budd.
Both women have huge knockout power, and could end being the fight that steals the show.
Tickets for the Strikeforce Challengers show in Washington go on sale today.
