Strikeforce veterans Robbie Lawler and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal will each be in action on the January 7 Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine lineup, as more fights were recently announced for the officially confirmed card.
The event takes place on Showtime from Las Vegas, Nevada with a main event pitting middleweight champion Luke Rockhold against UFC veteran Keith Jardine in the American Kickboxing Academy product’s first title defense.
Meanwhile, Lawler has been signed to face Adlan Amagov, while Lawal will tangle with Lorenz Larkin.
“Ruthless” Robbie is currently in a two-fight losing skid, dropping his record to 18-8 overall. Amagov sports a 9-1-1 mark, including a victory over Anthony Smith just last month.
Lawal returned from an extended break to have knee surgery to defeat Roger Gracie back in September, as the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion looks to get back his belt. Larkin is 12-0 and has won four fights this year alone.
