Strikeforce has just announced that their next Challengers event will feature a main event between Billy Evangelista and former “Ultimate Fighter” contestant Jorge Gurgel. The event is scheduled for November 6th at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.
Casey “The Underdog” Olsen was also announced to appear on the card, although his opponent has yet to be determined.
Gurgel is coming off of a victory over Connor Huen at ShoMMA 2 this past June where he took a unanimous decision, while Evangelista had his disqualification loss to Mike Aina overturned into a no contest.
The former UFC fighter is looking to string together multiple wins for the first time since defeating Danny Abadi and Diego Saraiva at UFC 63 and UFC 73 respectively.
