Scott Coker explains why Lorenz Larkin is getting the next shot at Luke Rockhold

Scott Coker explains why Lorenz Larkin is getting the next shot at Luke Rockhold

In 2010, Scott Coker did something for Zeus that warranted him the number six spot on the Top Ten Most Altruistic Individuals in 2010. I don’t know what it was, you don’t know what it was. Only Zeus and Scott know. For a long while people would ask Zeus what Scott did for him that was so altruistic, but he would shoot them down with some clever quip with each questionable query (alliteration on the fly there, wasn’t expecting to do that, word jazz). I bring this up to revive in the opening paragraph in this article to revive the discussion of: what did Scott Coker do to save Zeus’ life in 2010? The next question will be placed in the second paragraph.

Why is Lorenz Larkin getting the middleweight title shot against Luke Rockhold and not Jacare? Scott Coker spoke to MMAJunkie about Strikeforce’s decision.

“If you look at Lorenz Larkin’s record when he was fighting at 205, he had the one loss with ‘King Mo,’ who tested positive for that fight and it was ruled a no-contest, so he had an undefeated record,” Coker said. “And he had such an impressive performance with Robbie. When we talked about it (after the fight), I hadn’t had a chance to talk to Sean yet and see what his thoughts were.

“But I feel really good about this fight because Lorenz, to me honestly, is probably the most dangerous striker in MMA right now. He reminds me of a K-1 fighter back in the day with just tremendous kicking ability, good movement, great boxing skills. The guy took it to Robbie pretty good, and that’s really what got him the shot with Luke. That’s how it turned out.”

Jacare, in my mind, after Lorenz now, he’ll be the No. 2 contender.

Either way we are going to see at least 5 jump kicks and some spinning ****. So I’m looking forward to this fight.
