American Kickboxing Academy standout Trevor Prangley is expected to face Robbie Lawler at Strikeforce: Evolution on Dec. 19 in San Jose, Calif.

Multiple MMAWeekly.com sources indicated the bout was all but signed. One source said Prangley, 37, is awaiting a bout agreement and is expected to sign as soon as Monday afternoon.

Lawler was rumored to face Melvin Manhoef, a bout long campaigned for by Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, but Manhoef is committed to fight on the Dream vs. Sengoku New Yearís Eve event against an opponent yet to be announced.

Prangley, a native South African who splits his time between San Jose and Coeur DíAlene, Idaho, recently told MMAWeekly.com he planned to return to the Strikeforce cage in February. He fought last Saturday at Shark Fights 7, defeating Marcus Sursa by submission for the promotionís light heavyweight championship. He is currently riding a five-fight win streak.

Lawler, 27, has fought just once in 17 months, a submission loss to Jake Shields in June. Prior to that, he had amassed a five-fight win streak including a short reign as middleweight champion of the now-defunct EliteXC.

Strikeforce: Evolution is slated for the HP Pavilion and will be broadcast live on Showtime. Other featured bouts include a title unification bout between champion Josh Thomson and interim titleholder Gilbert Melendez, and a middleweight slugfest pitting former champ Cung Le against Scott Smith.

Thsi would be a good fight, I think! Lawler will whoop his ass
