Now that Lorenz Larkin is moving down to 185 lbs, can we get a little Larkin vs. Manhoef action?

Now that Lorenz Larkin is moving down to 185 lbs, can we get a little Larkin vs. Manhoef action?

If you’re asking what Manhoef has been up to since his ill-fated Strikeforce debut, take note that he’s fighting Tyrone Spong this weekend at It’s Showtime in The Netherlands. It’s been on LiverKick for days now. That’s why we have this great MiddleEasy Network that we slave over on a daily basis — to keep you as informed as humanly possible. We bring the ruckus on a day-to-day basis, and you’ve protected ya’ neck long enough to take in all the combat sports knowledge we dish out. That’s my subtle ode to Wu-Tang Clan, the last true hip-hop group the world has (had).

Upon first glance, Lorenz Larkin appears to have two unfinished first names combined to form one semi-finished full name. He’s like MMA’s version of Uwe Boll. Arnold DeWitt, Lorenz Larkin’s manager, told MMAFighting‘s Mike Chiappetta that the newly undefeated light heavyweight fighter intends to drop to middleweight. Strikeforce officials approved of the division move, and now we’re assuming Lorenz Larkin will be leading a low-carb, gluten-free lifestyle. Once Lorenz Larkin does arrive to the land of 185 lbs, Melvin Manhoef would be so perfect of a fight for him that it makes my head hurt. Two stand-up centric fighters in the middle of the cage going at it — while wearing skirts. The concentration of ‘rawesome’ in that mental image should make your head hurt too. [Source]
