Strikeforce Challengers 13 took place earlier this evening at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The ladies stole the show from the men tonight. Amanda Nunes only needed 14 seconds to drop Julia Budd with a left hand and pound her out with hammerfists. It was easily the most exciting moment of the night. Rhadi Ferguson scored a submission victory in his Strikeforce debut. He nearly got submitted himself early in the fight against late replacement John Richard, but escaped and secured a kneebar in the second round. The other three fights ended in decisions. Full recap.
