Robbie Lawler Plans To Test Jacare Souza's Stand Up This Weekend
The Strikeforce Middleweight Title will be on the line this weekend at Strikeforce: Diaz Vs. Cyborg as Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza will defend his belt against former champion "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler and Lawler talked about the match up and his plan to keep this fight standing last week:
"He’ll have no choice but to stand. That’s what I plan on doing. I’m forcing him to stand and seeing how good his standup is. I believe if anyone stands, it’s just a matter of time before I catch them. I believe I’m better on standup. He’s a really good athlete. He’s explosive. His takedowns are real explosive and he’s got a judo background. I just have to keep it where I want to and not make any mistakes and take advantage of it being on the feet. I believe it’s going to be an awesome fight. Two guys, one guy not wanting to give up the belt and one guy going in there to take the belt. It’s going to be a battle."
