Robbie Lawler:

“It’s a great opportunity to fight another top-ranked fighter …. Scott Coker really stepped up and I’m glad to be fighting for him and Strikeforce …. We were all unsure of where our next fight would be (referring to the former EliteXC stable of fighters), so we’re glad someone with his experience stepped in. He has been good to us.”
