Prangley vs. Ruiz Added To Strikeforce Event

Another bout has been added to the “Strikeforce at the Mansion II” event, set to take place on September 20 at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA; Anthony Ruiz, who replaced Bobby Southworth, will instead face Trevor Prangley, of which Strikeforce confirmed the fight.  Both fighters have met in the past, most recently at a Strikeforce event back in October 2006, which Prangley won in a first-round submission.

Ruiz, who returns to Strikeforce for the first time since a loss to Southworth back in June, will go for his 8th win in 9 tries; his most recent bout being a victory over Jeremy Freitag at an EliteXC event in July.  Prangley, who is also going for his 8th win in 9 fights, will compete for the first time since Strikeforce’s 4-man tournament in November 2007, in which he scored a win over Falaniko Vitale before losing to Jorge Santiago in the tournament’s finale.  The “Strikeforce at the Mansion II” fight card currently looks like this:

  • Josh Thomson vs. Ashe Bowman
  • Mitsuhiro Ishida vs. Justin Wilcox
  • Trevor Prangley vs. Anthony Ruiz
  • Kazuo Misaki vs. Joe Riggs
