All Strikeforce Challengers 16 Fighters Medically Suspended

By Mike Whitman Jun 29, 2011
All 16 fighters who competed at Strikeforce Challengers 16 have been handed medical suspensions by the Washington State Department of Licensing after the June 24 event.

However, the majority of competitors received only a mandatory seven-day suspension following their bouts at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash., with six fighters receiving longer suspensions. Undercard competitors Trevor Smith and Jerron Peoples led the way in required time off, as Smith was suspended indefinitely while Peoples must sit out for 60 days.

Headlined by a lightweight attraction featuring Caros Fodor (pictured) and James Terry, the event aired live on Showtime, delayed on the west coast. A game but overmatched Terry was outworked by Fodor in the main event, losing a unanimous decision. Terry was suspended 28 days following his loss, as were Quinn Mulhern and Jeremy Hamilton.
