“Strikeforce Challenger Series” set for Friday night on Showtime

Tomorrow night Sept. 25, live on Showtime, “Strikeforce Challengers: Cummings vs. Kennedy” will take over the SpiritBank Event Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The popular MMA series showcases rising young MMA talent, as well as established veterans of the sport.

As always, PROMMA.INFO will be providing live play-by-play commentary of all the action. The main event features the fan-favorite, and rapidly rising army ranger, Tim Kennedy facing the undefeated Zak Cummings. Kennedy’s most recent bout was a submission victory (verbal tap) of Nick “The Goat” Thompson at “Strikeforce Challengers” in Seattle.

Cummings has amassed a perfect 10-0 record, with his biggest victory being a decision win over knockout artist Terry Martin at “XFC: Rumble in Racetown” back in February. Also on the main card, K-1 star Ray “Sugarfoot” Sefo makes his MMA return to take on durable MMA veteran Kevin Jordan.
