Strikeforce “Challengers 16 went down at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington, this Friday, and there was no lack of excitement in the cage.
São Paulo native Eduardo Pamplona made his promotional debut in style. Against local fighter Jerron Peoples, Pamplona was quick on the trigger and took just 2:40 minutes to take his opponent to the ground and pound away until the ref stepped in. With the win the 35-year-old brings his tally to ten back-to-back victories.
In the evening’s main event Caros Fodor took on James Terry and after three lukewarm rounds the scorecards read unanimous decision for Fodor. The former Marine now has four wins in a row on his record.
Holland’s Germaine de Randamie, a stalwart muay thai stylist, was unable to put her strike game to work and ended up being neutralized by Julia Budd, who took the unanimous decision.
