    MMA: Koscheck vs. Lawler confirmed for UFC 157 - Keep Punching : The Orange County Register



    Robbie Lawler, who has won multiple titles at middleweight, is dropping down to welterweight for his return to the UFC when he takes on former UFC welterweight title-challenger Josh Koscheck at UFC 157 on Feb. 23 at Honda Center, UFC officials announced on Wednesday night.

    Lawler fought at 170 pounds early in his career and went 4-3 in his first stint in the UFC from 2002-04. After leaving the UFC, Lawler went on to win the Superbrawl, Icon Sport and EliteXC middleweight titles. Lawler, 30, of Granite City, Ill., has lost three of his past four fights in Strikeforce. Lawler is 19-9 with 16 KOs.

    Koscheck (17-6), a former NCAA national wrestling champion and original cast member on the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter, is coming off a split decision loss to Johny Hendricks. Koscheck, 35, of Fresno, is 15-6 inside the octagon.

    Ronda Rousey (6-0) and Liz Carmouche (7-2) will become the first women in UFC history to fight in the octagon when they meet for the newly-minted UFC women’s bantamweight championship in the main event of UFC 157.

    In the other confirmed bouts for UFC 157, former Pride and Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson (29-8) faces former UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (18-3) and former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber (26-6) takes on Ivan Menjivar (25-9) in a rematch.
    Source is the Orange County Register, so make of it what you will.

    If it happens, I think Kos gets the TKO/KO victory, on the ground or on the feet...provided he's not completely gunshy.
    "To be truly walking on the warrior's path, we have to bring our minds back to the time when we were not ashamed of our dreams; when reality had not yet frustrated our ambitions; when our desire was still too strong to be repressed, and our spirit refused to surrender in resignation; when we were not yet doctors, businessmen, or lawyers, but still wanted to be heroes, leaders, bodhisattvas. The first step on the way to being warriors is to get back in touch with our dreams."

    Poor Kos. He calls Rory and Diaz and ends up getting stuck with Lawler. This is a huge step down in competition. Lawler should be fighting a like Ebersole.

    Tom Lawler would have made a lot more sense.

    Seeing Lawler get a KO over that curly headed fuck (rep to whoever gets the reference) would be an awesome return to the cage. I'd love to see it.

    I saw Lawler put Matt Lindland's to sleep live. Has some vicious power, but I think Kos takes this down.

    Kalebarker, you said it should be lawler vs ebersole. I like ebersole and would love to see him fight kos. Anyone one know when ebersole will be fighting next?

    I don't think he has a fight lined up but I know that Ebersole mentioned dropping down to lightweight as a possibility.
