LaFlare off Strikeforce Challengers 16; High-Mulhern Promoted

Injury has once again affected the lineup for Strikeforce Challengers 16, as welterweight prospect Ryan LaFlare has become the latest fighter forced from the June 24 card.  LaFlare underwent hand surgery last fall and was not cleared by his physician to participate in his bout with Travis Bush.

LaFlare was a replacement for Yuri Villefort, who was scratched last week with a knee injury. Villefort’s brother, Danillo Villefort, also recently withdrew from his middleweight tilt with Antwain Britt due to an undisclosed injury.

With the scratching of the Britt-Villefort contest, a welterweight matchup between UFC veteran Jason High and King of the Cage champion Quinn Mulhern has been bumped up to the Showtime-televised main card. High announced the news via Twitter on Saturday.

Set to take place Friday at ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash., Strikeforce Challengers 16 will be headed by a clash of rising 155-pounders Caros Fodor and James Terry.
