According to Sherdog.com, main event fighter Trevor Prangley (22-5) has pulled out of his main card fight on the StrikeforceEvolution (Dec, 19th) card.
Prangley was set to meet former EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawlor (16-5). Prangly is currently riding a five-fight winning streak that includes four victories in 2009. Robbie Lawler, who is coming of an uncharacteristic first-round TKO loss to noted non-threatening striker Jake Shields, is awaiting news on a last-minute replacement. With only four days to go until fight time, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker will have his work cut out for him.
