Germaine de Randamie Withdraws from Strikeforce Challengers 19 Card
Germaine de Randamie withdraws; Strikeforce Challengers 19 now complete with eight bouts.
Following Julie Kedzie’s withdrawal from her scheduled bout with Germaine de Randamie (2-2 MMA, 1-1 SF) at the Strikeforce Challengers 19 event, “The Iron Lady” was also scratched off from the fight card. Several sources close to the promotion confirmed that Strikeforce officials were incapable of setting a new opponent for Germaine de Randamie.
Strikeforce Challengers 19 will be held this Friday, September 23, at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The evening’s main card, which headlines the light-heavyweight bout between Lorenz Larkin (11-0 MMA, 2-0 SF) and Nick Rossborough (18-13 MMA, 0-0 SF), will be aired on Showtime.
Prior to the said removal, Gemraine de Randamie has aimed to backfire from her second MMA career misfortune at the Strikeforce Challengers 16 event — where she attained a unanimous decision loss over Julia Budd. With the scratched bout, the Strikeforce Challengers 19 fight card is now complete with eight matches.
