Robbie Lawler vs. Lorenz Larkin Booked For July 14th Strikeforce Event

The guys over at Strikeforce have added an explosive middleweight bout between Robbie Lawler and Lorenz Larkin, to their slowly building event which takes place at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, July 14, 2012.

30 year old "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (19-8-1) is a true veteran of the sport, having been around more than ten years, and fought for the likes of Elite XC, UFC, PRIDE and Strikeforce. The man known for his explosive punching power has scored big wins over names such as Chris Lytle, Frank Trigg, Matt Lindland, Melvin Manhoef and Ninja Rua. Lawler recently snapped a two fight losing streak by scoring a brutal TKO of Adlan Amalgov back in January.

On that same card, 25 year old prospect, Lorenz "The Monsoon" Larkin (12-0) lost his first ever fight to King Mo Lawal. Only to have the bout ruled a no contest when Lawal failed his post fight drug test. After the loss, Larkin decided to make the inevitable drop to the 185lb Middleweight division. This fight will mark his debut in his new weight class.
