Multiple reports have circulated in the past 24 hours that Monte Cox, the agent and manager for EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler, was looking to re-negotiate terms of a new contract in order to clear the way for his client to compete under the Strikeforce banner.

However, upon having been contacted by FiveOuncesOfPain.com, Cox indicated that Strikeforce has adopted the position that the contracts obtained during yesterday’s acquisition of select ProElite assets are indeed transferable.

As it stands, Cox has no intention of mounting a legal challenge, indicating that Lawler is happy with the terms of his existing deal that was originally signed with EliteXC and that his client “is ready to get back into the cage.”

When asked if Lawler could be involved with Strikeforce’s next show on April 11 in San Jose, Calif., Cox didn’t rule out the possibility but said that nothing is imminent. That could change after a planned meeting with Strikeforce Founder and CEO Scott Coker later this weekend.

Cox was also asked by Five Ounces of Pain if a fight between Lawler and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Frank Shamrock was a possibility for the April 11 event. The long-time manager and promoter indicated that nothing has been discussed regarding such a bout but that he and Lawler would certainly welcome the matchup.
