Squeezed between the Titan Fighting Champion 20 and DREAM 17 cards, the Strikeforce Challengers 19 main card delivered the goods. Four of the five bouts went the distance with the lone finish coming from Shawn Jordan in the night’s co-main event.

Main card

205 lbs.: Lorenz Larkin vs. Nick Rossborough – Lorenz Larkin by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27)

  • Larkin stays undefeated by defeating the very game and late replacement, Rossborough. The opening round was close but then the Kung Fu master took over and bloodied his opponent up in the final round.

265 lbs.: Lavar Johnson vs. Shawn Jordan – Shawn Jordan by 2nd rd. Submission (Kimura)

  • Johnson had his ground game exposed again as Jordan took him down multiple times and eventually tapping out to a nasty kimura.

155 lbs.: Ryan Couture vs. Maka Watson – Ryan Couture by Majority Decision (28-28, 29-28, 29-28)

  • A battle between Extreme Couture and Wand Fight Team goes to Ryan Couture who had the back of Watson for what seemed to be the majority of the fight. Some sharp elbows from Watson cut up Couture along the forehead but it was the control on the ground that earned the victory for Couture.

170 lbs.: Jason High vs. Todd Moore – Jason High by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

  • High improves to 2-0 under the Strikeforce banner with another unanimous decision win. The takedowns and ground and pound were the keys to victory for High who still didn’t look pleased with his overall performance.
