Heavy handed Robbie Lawler now has an opponent for the just announced Strikeforce: Los Angeles on June 16. That opponent will be UFC veteran Renato “Babalu” Sobral at a catch weight of 195 pounds in the main event of the night.
This will be Sobral’s first fight since his loss for the title against Gegard Mousasi back in Dec. of 2009. Mousasi stopped the Brazilian fighter in the first minute of their bout.
Lawler is coming off an impressive KO finish of Melvin Manhoef. A fight in which he was losing until he exploded with the finish back in January.
