“Just found out a few days ago that Robbie Lawler will fight Jake Shields on the Strikeforce card on June 6th, in St. Louis. It’s great to have Robbie fight that close to home. We were worried that he would fight in the month of May close to my fight, so it actually turns out to be a pretty good schedule. As always, Robbie’s a performer and puts on fights that people want to see.
Matt Hughes confirms that Lawler vs. Shields and Strikeforce’s second major event will be pushed back to early June. The event was originally being planned for May.
Other rumored participants for the June event include Renato “Babalu” Sobral, Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante, Phil Baroni, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, Joey Villasenor, and Kim Couture.
