Report: Lorenz Larkin To Face Luke Rockhold In November

Lorenz Larkin has made one appearance at middleweight for Strikeforce.

Larkin defeated Robbie Lawler earlier this year, and that performance seems to be enough to get Larkin a shot at Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

MMA Weekly has reported that Larkin will face Rockhold this November in the co-main event to the Daniel Cormier-Frank Mir card in Oklahoma City.

Larkin (13-0) dropped down from 205 pounds after a loss to Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal. The defeat, however, was overturned to a no-contest after Lawal failed his post-fight drug test.

Rockhold (10-1) was expected to face former champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, even asking Strikeforce for the match on a number of occasions.
