Strikeforce announced on Tuesday that they have add Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Lindland to a December 5 card in St. Louis that will be headlined by Dan Henderson vs. Renato "Babalu" Sobral. Lawler and Lindland are both veterans who can bring an interesting fight to the table, so who wouldn't be happy about that?

Tim Kennedy.

The Strikeforce middleweight said on his Facebook page and Twitter that he had asked to fight Lawler or Lindland next. "I'm so pissed. I asked for Robbie Lawler or Matt Lindland (in addition to a bunch of other guys) if I didn't get Jacare, and now they are fighting eachother?!?!?"

The last time we saw Kennedy, he lost a unanimous decision to Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in a bid for Strikeforce's middleweight belt. If a rematch is not in the offing, then a fight between him and Lawler or Lindland would be an exciting bout.
