Lawler vs. Lindland Middleweight Clash Added to December 4 Strikeforce Card

(When Lawler said he’ll beat Lindland with his eyes closed, he was serious.)

Strikeforce announced today that a bout between Matt "The Law" Lindland and "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler has been added to its December 4 show in St. Louis, Missouri.

2-3 in his last five outings, Lindland will be looking to avoid racking up any more brain trauma when he meets the dangerous knockout artist, Lawler, who has also only won two of his last five contests.

Two statistics worth noting are that Lawler has finished each of the six opponents he defeated in his past ten fights by KO or TKO and that four of his six losses have come by submission. Considering that Lindland has submitted a hanful of tough jiu-jitsu black belts including Travis Lutter, Carlos Newton and Fabio Leopoldo, the fight could be more competitive than it seems at first glance.

Lindland, who at 40 is 12 years older than Lawler, suffered one of the most disturbing knockouts in MMA history at the hands of Vitor Belfort in the Brazilian’s middleweight debut at Affliction: Day of Reckoning in January 2009 so things could get interesting when the pair meet in December.

Also on the card, which is shaping up nicely is a light heavyweight match-up between Dan Henderson and Renato "Babalu" Sobral and a guaranteed welterweight slugfest between New Strikeforce signee Paul "Semtex" Daley and Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith.

As a fan who lives in the STL I have to say SF has been good to us. Much better than the UFC. But GODAMN when will the UFC come here? We will sell that shit out fast!

I guess we need to be a piss poor broke ass city to get some love (like Detroit) and quit being able to afford PPV's before we get a live show.

Some good articles as of late. Karo's non-addiction, Ricky Hatton's non-female lady friend, Nick Diaz-KJ Noons what have you, Roids vs Belly potential matchup, nothing about Canada, etcetera, etcetera. Keep up the good work.

Would love to see Paul Daley get raped into a "living death" ala Shamrock. I'm tired of hearing about this asshole.

When I first saw this, the fight sounded interesting. Then I realized this isn't 2006, and I stopped caring.

Hopefully Babalu and Hendo make this card interesting. Scott Smith getting KO'ed could be fun to watch.

Nice looking card in my opinion.

Lindland. Easy.

Seems more interesting than UFC 119 did.

Lindland is so old, he bleeds dust.

Might be worth driving to St. Louie for.
