Lawler, Lashley, and Noons Official for June 16 Strikeforce in Los Angeles

Strikeforce Los Angeles PosterRobbie Lawler, Bobby Lashley, and KJ Noons will fight in featured bouts at Strikeforce’s June 16 event at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, the promotion today confirmed, with opponents for the fighters to be announced soon.

Strikeforce’s first-ever mid-week event will air live on Showtime at 11pm ET (delayed on west coast).

After dropping his Strikeforce debut to Jake Shields last June, the former EliteXC middleweight title-holder Lawler (19-5) weathered an early attack from Melvin Manhoef before scoring a first-round KO at January’s “Strikeforce: Miami”.

Lashley (5-0), a former pro wrestling star, earned a first-round TKO of Wes Sims in his Strikeforce debut in January to improve to 5-0, while the former EliteXC lightweight champ Noons (8-2) returned to MMA last month with a unanimous decision over Andre “Dida” Amade at DREAM 13.
