It’s another relatively quiet week on the mixed martial arts front, but thankfully Strikeforce Challengers 9 is on this Friday, 23rd July to keep us going until a monster month of MMA action begins in August.
The ninth in the Challengers series is headed up by Strikeforce heavyweight prospect Shane Del Rosario who’ll be attempting to take his pro record to a perfect 10-0 when he throws down with Lolohea Mahe who’ll be looking to make amends for losing his promotional debut at ShoMMA 7 back in March.
Meanwhile the card also boasts Strikeforce woman’s welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman who will look to defend her belt for the first time against the always fun to watch Roxanne Modafferi who put on a ‘Fight Of The Night’ display as she broke Tara La Rosa’s 15 fight win streak at May’s Moosin: Gods Of War event.
Former UFC fighter and seasoned veteran Mike Kyle brings a four fight unbeaten run into his light-heavyweight bout with Abongo Humphrey who holds just one loss, to Brett Rogers, on his eight fight pro record.
Further bouts between Cory Devela and Bobby Voelker plus Caros Fodor Vs Thomas Diagne round off the main card for the event which airs live on Showtime this Friday night.
