Strikeforce Medical Suspensions: Robbie Lawler Could Face Six-Month Layoff

Following Strikeforce's 'Diaz vs. Cyborg' event this past Saturday night, the California State Athletic Commission has released the medical suspensions incurred from a night that saw every fight on the card end in a stoppage. One of the highlights is what could be a six month layoff for former No. 1 Strikeforce middleweight contender and knockout artist Robbie Lawler, who apparently suffered a foot injury during his bout with middleweight champion Ronaldo Jacaré Souza.

Souza went on to defend and retain his belt, taking the fight with a rear naked choke submission in the third round. See the rest of the night's suspensions below, via MMA Weekly:
