Bill Cooper Fighting Matt Ricehouse at Nov. 18th Challengers
By FCF Staff
Strikeforce has added a bout between undefeated lightweights Bill Cooper and Matt Ricehouse to the line-up of the promotion’s upcoming November 18th Challengers event.
Ricehouse (5-0) has recorded three victories while competing for Strikeforce, and most recently in June, he worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Ryan Couture.
Cooper (2-0), who transitioned into professional MMA earlier this year, is coming off a submission win over Maka Watson in July.
The November 18th card will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Antwain Britt and Lumumba Sayers and will also feature a 145lb. tilt between Ronda Rousey and Julia Budd.
The card will be hosted by The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and will be broadcast on Showtime.
