Quoteworthy:

"I’m looking forward to going out there and getting in his face, getting right on it, making this a really tough night on Robbie and making it the most miserable night he’s ever had ... Of course it’s going to be a challenge. I’m not just going to walk in there and just take the guy down. All fights have to start on the feet. I’m going to have to navigate through the striking with him, close the distance. He’s got good sprawl and brawl. He gets off the bottom well. I’m going to have to make this a fight."

Veteran mixed martial arts middleweight Matt Lindland looks to enforce "The Law" on Saturday night (Dec. 4) against fellow longtime fighter Robbie Lawler when they throw hands at the "Henderson vs. Babalu" event under the Strikeforce banner in St. Louis. Will the Team Quest fixture be able to get this fight to the ground? Or will he be subjected to a "Ruthless" beating from the power-punches of Lawler?
