Robbie Lawler (18-8-0) vs. Adlan Amagov (9-1-1) Line: Lawler -160, Amagov +130

Robbie Lawler and Adlan Amagov fight on Saturday’s Rockhold-Jardine card for Strikeforce in a battle between a fighter looking to rebound and another looking to make a name for himself.

Lawler is a top competitor for Strikeforce, competing for the middleweight championship earlier this year in a loss via submission to Ronaldo Souza. He fractured his foot in that fight, returning almost exactly six months later in a loss to Tim Kennedy. It seems as if he rushed back from his injury for that fight, because he did not perform at his typical high level. Lawler is still a top competitor in this division for Strikeforce and his aggressive boxing and wrestling techniques should be able to overcome the striking and grappling style of Amagov, who despite his strong record, has yet to really face a quality foe. Lawler is a significantly superior fighter but the lines are tempered because of his two-fight losing streak.


Lawler (18-8-0) likes to end fights early when he gets the chance. Fifteen of his 18 career wins have come by knockouts, with his last two victories coming in the first round. His combination of boxing and submission wrestling makes him a dangerous weapon, something that a less-experience opponent such as Amagov may not realistically be able to handle. Unquestionably more talented and experienced, Lawler is the play here.

Amagov (9-1-1) competed primarily in Russia before moving to the United States, where he has fought his past two bouts for Strikeforce. Both of those were wins, a split decision and a knockout over Anthony Smith. But those opponents are nothing compared to the skill Lawler has shown in his career. If Amagov can pull out this victory, he would definitely make a name for himself in Strikeforce, but he is too unproven for bettors to make him the play in this fight.
