Strikeforce Challengers 16 coming to Kent, Wash. on June 24 with Fodor vs. Terry main event

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Strikeforce Challengers 16 is headed to Kent, Wash. next month, coming to the ShoWare Center on Friday, June 24 and airing live on Showtime.

Tickets for the event - which will be headlined by lightweight bout between Caros Fodor and James Terry - are now on sale, ranging from $25-$100.

Fodor will make his fourth appearance in Strikeforce's "Challengers" series, having won his previous three fights in the organization dating back to last July. Most recently, Fodor took out David Douglas by TKO at Strikeforce Challengers 15 last month.

Terry competed on that same card, and pulled off a highly impressive first round knockout win of his own over Josh Thornburg. The win put his Strikeforce record at 5-1 in six appearances, including a three fight winning streak of his own.

Also on the card will be the light heavyweight bout between the highly impressive Lorenz Larkin and Gian Villante, as well as 2-0 Ryan Couture, son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, back in action for his third professional fight against the undefeated Matt Ricehouse. In addition to those two fights, the main card is rounded out by a light heavyweight fight between Antwain Britt and one time UFC competitor Danillo Villefort, as well as a women's bout between Julia Budd and Germaine de Randamie.
