UFC ON FOX 8 RESULTS: Robbie Lawler Puts Voelker to Sleep With a 2nd Round Head-Kick KO

By JAKE CHASTAIN

| Robbie Lawler came out on fire, in every sense of the word.

He was landing clean punches, solid kicks, flying-knees and vicious elbows. Robbie didn’t waste any time coming out and setting the pace of the fight. He totally dominated the first round and was looking unrealistically quick.

Within the first couple of minutes of the bout Lawler had already sliced and cut-up  Voelker. He was getting the best of Bobby in every aspect and it was apparent early in the fight that Lawler had come to prove his worth at the top of the welterweight division.

After putting together an outstanding opening round that could have easily scored him a 10-8 judgment Lawler didn’t waste any time in the second round putting an electric stamp on his amazing performance. After throwing and landing a left high kick several times in the 1st round Lawler came out and opened the round with the kick again and it landed flush on the face of Voelker and dropped him cold. He ran in to finish what was already done and was pushed off by the ref to signal the end of the fight at :24 seconds of the 2nd Round.

Robbie Lawler wins via 2nd Round Knock-Out over Bobby Voelker

This is the second outstanding performance in a row put on by Robbie Lawler and his current 2-0 streak in the UFC welterweight division will likely put him in the mix for a title contention fight. He was ranked #9 in the division heading into the fight with Voelker and this win could likely move him up enough to draw a top 5 opponent in his next fight. It will be highly interesting to see what the UFC decides to do with Lawler next. Stay glued to BJPenn.com to see what the company decides to do with the surging Lawler next.
