Robbie Lawler Off Stirkeforce Evolution Card..


Quote:
Robbie Lawler will not be competing this Saturday night after all. The middleweight fighter was supposed to face Trevor Prangley on the undercard of Showtime's Strikeforce: Evolution card, but after Prangley was forced to withdraw earlier this week due to an injury suffered during training, the organization was left without an opponent.

Strikeforce tried to find an opponent for Lawler, but FanHouse has learned that they have decided to keep him off the card. The organization is hoping to reschedule him for the upcoming Jan. 30 event in Sunrise, Fla.

The Showtime telecast will now feature four fights:

Cung Le vs. Scott Smith
Josh Thomson (c) vs. Gilbert Melendez -- lightweight title
Muhammed Lawal vs. Mike Whitehead
Matt Lindland vs. Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza

Lawler, the former EliteXC middleweight champion, last competed in June, losing via first-round submission to Jake Shields. He has three fights left on his Strikeforce contract.

Damn, this weakens the Evolution card alot...

Unhappy Thoughts...

To be honest, even though there are some good fights on the card, I've never really been thrilled about it.

Why couldnt someone else have gotten hurt instead of Lawler oppoenent? It is an unjust god that takes Lawler off the card and leaves Jacare/Lindland on it. That has the potential to be the most boring fight of the decade.
