Robbie Lawler vs. Renato "Babalu" Sobral Set for Strikeforce: Los Angeles

According to sherdog.com:

Robbie Lawler will face Renato "Babalu" Sobral in a 195-pound catch-weight bout at Strikeforce’s June 16 event at the Nokia Theatre on Los Angeles, Sherdog.com has learned.

"[Jason "Mayhem"] Miller isn’t fighting because we believe, in speaking with the Tennessee Athletic Commission, that he will put under some type of suspension," Coker told Sherdog.com on Thursday. "After reviewing the tape (of the April 17 incident), we felt that Miller shouldn’t headline our next event. We will honor the Tennessee commission’s decision when it’s announced."
