STRIKEFORCE CHALLENGERS 16 RESULTS: Caros Fodor and Matt Ricehouse Upset James Terry and Ryan Couture - 6/24/11

STRIKEFORCE CHALLENGERS 16: FODOR VS TERRY was held Friday, June 24, 2011, at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington. All 5 of the main card fights went the distance, with 4 of the fights resulting in upsets on the betting lines.

In the main event, Caros "The Future" Fodor proved that he is indeed the future of the Strikeforce lightweight division with an impressive decision win over Cung Le protégé James Terry. Fodor fended off most of Terry's takedown attempts and won the striking battle en route to winning a consensus judges' decision.

In the highly entertaining lightweight co-main event, UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture's son Ryan Couture lost for the first time in his young career. Couture simply got outhustled by Matt Ricehouse and lost a unanimous decision. Ricehouse looked much crisper than Couture and showed a great deal of calm in fighting against such a highly publicized opponent who was supposed to beat him.
