Here's the scoop from Sherdog: Villasenor-Cyborg booked for June 19'th ShoMMA
Some highlights of the article:
Former EliteXC middleweight title challenger Joey Villasenor will meet Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos at ShoMMA "Strikeforce Challenger Series 2" on June 19 at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash. Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz made Sherdog.com aware of the matchup on Tuesday
The event will mark the San Jose, Calif.-based promotion's second appearance in the state of Washington. It follows the February 2008 card at the Tacoma Dome, which saw supersized South African Jan Nortje smash fellow K-1 veteran Bob Sapp in just 55 seconds.
The second edition of ShoMMA will also feature Washington natives Dennis Hallman and Cory Devela, as well as UFC veteran Jorge Gurgel against yet-to-be-named opponents. Afromowitz told Sherdog.com that, despite reports of slated bouts pitting Gurgel against Conor Heun and Lyle Beerbohm against Duane Ludwig, only Gurgel has been officially confirmed for the card.
I, for one, am stoked for this fight. I think it would've been foolish to have put such a great matchup on the Lawler- Shields card (which was already extremely stacked), and this adds not only another high quality fight to the card, but one with the potential for huge fireworks.
I'm also stoked for the Ludwig/ Beerbohm and Gurgel/ Heun fights. Strikeforce is putting together some real solid cards lately.
