Strikeforce Challengers: Voelker vs. Bowling III was a mixed martial arts event held by Strikeforce. The seventeenth Challengers episode took place on July 22, 2011 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

LAS VEGAS – Fourteen months after their feud began, the trilogy between Strikeforce welterweight prospects Bobby Voelker and Roger Bowling is over.

Despite struggling early against an on-point Bowling, Voelker used one crisp knee and a flurry of punches to down Bowling for the second-straight time.

Bobby Voelker vs Roger Bowling:

Lots of feeling out to start, Bowling lands a few body shots and a body punch. Inside leg kick for Bowling. As usual Bowling is the aggressor and every one of his strikes has real intensity behind it. Bowling misses a big uppersut. Body kick for Bowling. Voelker starts to work the jab but that is all the offense he seems interested in using.

They continue to box, Voelker is cautious, Bowling is not. Voelker ducks under a wild hook from Bowling. Bowling pumps him with a big hook. Kick for Bowling. Inside leg kick for Bowling. More boxing until Bowling comes forward and gets a double leg takedown. It doesn’t last as Voelker stands right up and out of it. Body kick for Bowling.

And wouldn’t you know it Bowling catches a finger in the eye…there is some delicious deja vu going on here. Bowling shakes it off and they restart. Bowling hits some big punches that rattle Voelker. Body kick from Bowling is blocked. Voelker nails a big jab. Knee for Voelker at the bell but the round belong to his opposition. 10-9 Bowling.

Devin Cole vs Shawn Jordan:

Cole lands a shot in the early stages. Jordan comes back with the always popular outside leg kick. Jordan charges and pushes Cole straight up against the cage. Short elbow for Jordan. They come together and a botched takedown lands Jordan on top of a flattened out Cole.

Cole is able to slide out of it and gets Jordan’s back for a half second. THey end up back on their feet. Cole pushes for the takedown but eats a massive fist for his trouble. They end up in the clinch in the center of the cage. Takedown for Cole and he tries to take the back but can’t quite do it. They box and Jordan hits a wicked uppercut that rocks Cole.

They tie up along the cage and Jordan hits a knee. They break, Jordan misses a big uppercut and Cole lands a few shots for himself. Jordan catches him with a kick and a punch to end the round. I already had it for Jordan before that but it should really solidify it in the mind’s of the judges. 10-9 Jordan.
