Strikeforce Challengers 17 Fight Card: Voelker vs. Bowling

New, comments
Strikeforce brings you the next event in their Challenger Series this Friday night from the Pearl at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. The main event will be the rubber match between Bobby Voelker and Roger Bowling, who have fought twice before. Bowling won the first by technical decision after an eyepoke early in the third round forced the fight to go to the scorecards. Voelker rebounded with a unanimous decision victory in their second bout last October.

The other highlights of the card include prospect Ovince St. Preux taking on Joe Cason, former Strikeforce women's 135 lb. champion Sarah Kaufman returning to action against Liz Carmouche, and hard-hitting prospect Adlan Amagov making his Strikeforce debut. The card will air on Showtime starting at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Here's the full card:

Bobby Voelker (23-8) vs. Roger Bowling (9-1)

Devin Cole (18-9-1) vs. Shawn Jordan (10-2)

Ovince St. Preux (10-4) vs. Joe Cason (9-1)
