The 22-5 South African is currently riding a five-fight winning streak with notable victories in his career over Falaniko Vitale, Travis Lutter, Matt Horwich, and Chael Sonnen. Prangley’s absence leaves hard-hitting fan favorite Robbie Lawler without an opponent for Saturday night, though Afromowitz assured fans Strikeforce is “currently searching for a replacement”.

While purely speculation at this point, another possibility could be pushing Lawler’s next appearance back to January 30th, 2010 when the company ventures to Miami with women’s champion Cris “Cyborg” Santos the recently signed Bobby Lashley rumored to be in action.
