Manhoef Eyes Strikeforce Debut Against Lawler In Early 2010

Fiveouncesofpain.com has the scoop:

There were scores of mixed martial arts fans that began to salivate at the mouth at the prospect of a showdown against fellow knockout artist Robbie Lawler once Manhoef’s arrival to Strikeforce was formally announced over the last week. However, when Manhoef’s management was contacted by FiveOuncesofPain.com it was learned that “No Mercy” will most likely not be competing at the December 19 “Strikeforce: Evolution” card as many had hoped, due to Melvin’s commitment to the New Years Eve event in Japan.

While Manhoef vs. Lawler may not be taking place this year, there is a good possibility of the two heavy handed sluggers duking it out sometime in early 2010 as Manhoef’s people stated that he is definitely interested in facing off with the “Ruthless” one during his stint with Strikeforce.
