No Bobby Lashley on June 16 inside the Nokia Theatre for Strikeforce Los Angeles, which is somewhat disappointing.

Slated to fight Ron Sparks in what was supposed to be his toughest MMA test to date, the undefeated Lashley (5-0) pulled out with a knee injury.

No word on the extent of Lashley's knee injury and how long he'll be sidelined. Also no word on whether or not Sparks will remain on the mid-week card featuring Robbie Lawler vs. Renato "Babalu" Sobral as the main event.

But we do have a newly featured bout: Tim Kennedy vs. Trevor Prangley.
