Strikeforce Challengers 19, Scheduled on Sept. 23 in Las Vegas
Strikeforce disclosed the venue and date for the yet-to-be-announced Challengers 19 event.
Though the line-up for the said event has not yet been finalized, Strikeforce Challengers 19 was announced to take place at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on September 23.
Since the year 2011 begins, Strikeforce has been hosting events under the provision of UFC’s parent company. They’ve received a license from Nevada last June, allowing them to hold all of their “Challengers Series” cards in Las Vegas – starting with the weekend’s “Strikeforce Challengers 17: Voelker vs. Bowling III” event.
Before attaining the said license agreement, most of the Strikeforce events – though believed to be aired on Showtime – were held in smaller venues with few viewers. Their last event before the actual Las Vegas debut was the Strikeforce Challengers 16 which took place in Kent, Washington.
Meanwhile, it was in March 2011 when Zuffa, LLC purchased Strikeforce. Today, there are several rumors claiming that the two organizations may work independently in the future.
