NEW YORK (Dec. 29, 2010) – One day after re-signing its world welterweight champion, Nick Diaz, to a new multi-fight deal, STRIKEFORCE announced Wednesday that exciting, hard-hitting former two-time world middleweight champion "Ruthless’’ Robbie Lawler had also signed a new, multi-year agreement with the San Jose, Calif.-based world championship Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion.

One of the most lethal punchers in his weight class, Lawler (18-6, 1 NC) will challenge STRIKEFORCE middleweight belt-holder "Jacare" Souza (13-2, 1 NC) in one half of a STRIKEFORCE World Championship Doubleheader on Saturday, Jan. 29, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast). Diaz (23-7, 1 NC) will defend his title against Brazilian powerhouse Evangelista Cyborg (18-13) in the other.

Damnit he should be in the UFC he'd make a good title challenger.

lawler would be a gate keeper at best in the ufc middleweight division. he made the right choice here.

Lawler belongs in the UFC, he would be a contender at best but the money was probably better in strikeforce.

i honestly dont see lawler getting through anyone in the top 5 of the ufc mw division i know it was awhile ago but he couldn't cut it as a ww. he's gotten better but there are some scary cats in the ufc mw division. strikeforce has a handful of fighters they can rinse and repeat with. if lawler is lookin for a belt than he made the right choice. if he wanted to challenge himself than...not so much.

Jacare should not stand with Lawler at all imo
