From Fiveouncesofpain.com

Within the last week, published reports have indicated that former EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler was expected to be added to Strikeforce’s upcoming April 11 event that will air on Showtime.

Sources have revealed to FiveOuncesOfPain.com that while Lawler’s involvement with the April event was discussed, Strikeforce officials have decided to have Lawler headline its May event tentatively scheduled for Seattle against an unnamed opponent.

According to a source, Strikeforce decided not to move forward with adding Lawler to its April event because it wants both Lawler and Frank Shamrock to headline separate cards in an attempt to build to a possible matchup between the two fighters.
