No matter how good of shape you’re in, Lorenz Larkin and Robbie Lawler just made you feel out of shape. Unofficially, the two of them burnt off the equivalent of a half dozen of these Cold Stone shakes that equal the recommended daily calorie intake for most human beings on earth. Delicious, deadly drinks like those are exactly what Lorenz Larkin had to cut out of his diet to make 185 pounds, and he made his new weight class debut in style against Robbie Lawler. After getting stumbled early by Lawler’s powerful and angry fists, Larkin unleashed about 11 minutes of beautiful Muay Thai and superior athletic prowess that had Lawler zagging instead of zigging and refusing to pull the trigger.
After all was said and done, Lorenz got on his knees with a confused Mauro Ranallo and begged for a Strikeforce bonus system. I actually thought he was about to beg to leave Strikeforce, but no, he wants a bonus system for he and his Strikeforce brethren.
Take a look at a rawsome kick by Larkin that opened up a few nasty cut’s on Lawler’s head, then look at Larkin’s explosive elbows, courtesy of ZProphet. Man, Larkin looked awesome at 185.
