Ontario, Canada’s BTC was back in action on Saturday, July 9, with BTC 16: Challenger Series 1.

The night, as the name suggests, was heavy on prospects, with several fighters making their professional debuts. In the main event, a pair of undefeated featherweights faced off, with American Cody Chovancek — fighting out of Niagara Top Team in Ontario — taking on Canada’s Jake Geauvreau, representing New Era Combat Sports.

Also appearing on the card Saturday, 3-1 welterweight Bobby Poulter returned to the BTC cage for the first time since 2019, taking on 5-3 LFA alum Nelly Thompson. Both fighters were looking to bounce back from losses in their last outings.

In lightweight action, France’s Charles Azoulay was looking to get by Canadian Kevin Bastien Popowick, repping TriStar Gatineau and Niagara Top Team.
