Strikeforce fighters Bobby Voelker, Lavar Johnson, and Billy Evangelista walked out of the cage to the ring of "Pomp and Circumstance" as wins in Strikeforce Challengers 11 may have graduated their careers to primetime Strikeforce cards. Heavyweight Lavar Johnson extended his current win streak to seven, scoring a knockout victory over Virgil Zwicker who made his Strikeforce debut. The win makes for thirteen by form of knockout for Johnson. Billy Evangelista stayed perfect following an all-out striking war with Waachim Spiritwolf. Evangelista defeated the former King of the Cage junior welterweight title contender punching his way to a unanimous decision win. Evangelista has seen action on main Strikeforce cards, and will this impressive win should secure his return to the primetime scene. Bobby Voelker handed previously undefeated Roger Bowling his first loss in a highly anticipated rematch. Despite some tough Bowling takedown action, Voelker avenged a decision loss to Bowling in May (their first match was stopped in the third round following an accidental eye poke by Voelker) by stopping the Ohio-based fighter with a second round referee's stoppage due to violent ground-and-pound.
