In the opening bout of tonight’s UFC 157 pay-per-view card, former top 10 middleweight, Robbie Lawler made a triumphant return as a UFC welterweight against Josh Koscheck.

The fight was short and after two-succesful takedowns by Koscheck, Lawler was able to use his power punching successfully while sprawling out of a third takedown attempt to stun Koscheck and put him on his back. Herb Dean quickly jumped in as a fired up Lawler continued to rain down shots to force the stoppage.

The final result:

Robbie Lawler def. Josh Koscheck via TKO Round 1.

  1. Rob says:

    And Koscheck is gone…

    • GOT RID OF FITCH ( finally) says:

      Dana said he was a few feet away and saw Koscheck go limp out cold and by the time the ref was able to stop it Lawlor had already woke Kos back up. Dana said Kos didn’t know what happen and had to watch the replay on bigscreen. Once the ref sees a fighter go limp and eyes roll back they are suppose to stop it (just not in the Pat Curran.Joe Warren fight

      Bad week for Jon layn pray Fitch loses his job weekend of his 35th birthday and his best buddy in world got KO’d. I think its kind in a way ironic Koschecks gameplan was to “FITCH” Lawlor and he still got Ko’d

      • Yes, Kos was done... says:

        It was so NOT an early stoppage. At the beginning of the GNP, Kos took a hard shot and could barely defend himself. After a couple more shots, Kos wasn’t defending himself at all (watch it again, his hands weren’t even protecting his face).

        It may have looked like Kos was pushing Lawler away, but it was actually Herb Dean pushing Lawler away from Kos. Dean stays out of it, and Kos would’ve got pounded into unconsciousness. No Doubt About It~!

        Robbie Lawler is back where he belongs!

  2. Chance says:

    pre-mature stoppage. Kos was stuck by the cage. I don’t think he was out of it at all. But when Herb Dean stops the fight I guess you shouldn’t argue.

  3. GRT 3000 says:

    premature stopulation by Herb Dean there. Kos still had his hands up and was alert and defending.

    **on the heels of that this PPV sucked bag.

  4. 123 says:

    what isit with theese early & late stoppages.. they stop fights way too early now its getting pathetic, they talk about fighter safety but most of the time their not even hurt.. they just get up & laugh.. just abit too eager to stop it “sometimes”

  5. 123 says:

    robbie lawler hits hard, he should fight rory mcdonald next

  6. DBKlein69 says:

    koscheck’s eyes rolled into the back of his head he was definately out for a brief moment. yes he did recover just as herb dean stepped in but that was only because herb stopped lawlor from landing more shots. herb did his job and saved kos from taking any unnecessary damage.

  7. 123 says:

    yh true, didnt see his eyes roll back.

  8. magoo says:

    Shoulda cut Koscheck instead of Fitch!!! This guys not even a gate keeper,and Rory would smash Lawler 123.

  9. Inyoface says:

    Rogen said it was a premature stoppage, give me a break.
