A middleweight bout featuring Robbie Lawler has been scratched for Saturday’s Strikeforce “Evolution” event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., confirmed with the promotion on Wednesday.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told via text that the promotion was unable to secure a quality opponent for the Iowan power puncher in time. Among the candidates considered for the former EliteXC middleweight champion was Kala Hose, who had twice been scheduled to face Lawler for Icon Sport back in 2008 before both bouts were called off. Coker said Hose had the flu and could not accept the bout.

Prolly better to keep Lawler off with SF only being days away. SF should put him on the next card, that might be the CBS one. Rematch with Joey V?

bummer, I wonder what fight gets bumped to the main card

Probably a good thing as his opponent wouldn't have any time at all for preparation and that would just equate to a quick KO loss.
