Injuries have forced the cancellation of a Antwain Britt (11-5 MMA, 1-2 SF) vs. Danillo Villefort (13-3 MMA, 0-0 SF) bout planned for this month's Strikeforce Challengers 16 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker that both middleweights sustained injuries

They're not going to be happy with their ticket sales for this event. Last time they came to Kent, WA for a Challengers series they brought 11 fights featuring Bang Ludwig, Lyle Beerbohm, Dennis Hallman, Bryan Caraway, Luke Rockhold, Cory Devela, Jorge Gurgel, Conor Heun, Tim Kennedy, Nick Thompson, Joey Villasenor, Cyborg, etc.

This time they bring only 8 fights with infinitely less "name" drawing power, that will probably all make the Showtime broadcast which can be found streaming for free like always. If even someone like me is leaning against going and it's 15 minutes from me; I can't imagine this event will be successful at all.

Damn, this sucks. I was looking forward to this fight b/c Danillo Villefort was my coach. And now I heard a rumor about his younger brother, Yuri Villefort whose absolute monster and I feel will be a legit threat in the welterweight division in the near future, also drop out of the event too.
