At 31 year’s old, Robbie Lawler got the biggest win of his long career with a first round TKO victory over former title contender Josh Koscheck at UFC 157. During his time with Strikeforce, he went just 3-5 in the middleweight division, earning victories over Melvin Manhoef, Matt Lindland, and Adlan Amagov.

Tarec Saffiedine will go in the record books as Strikeforce’s last welterweight champion, as he defeated Nate Marquardt with a dominant unanimous decision in the promotion’s final show. He’s currently on a four-fight win streak, also including wins over Tyler Stinson, Scott Smith, and Roger Bowling.

Alpha Male product, Danny Castillo returned to the win column at UFC on Fuel TV 7, with a unanimous decision victory over the submission specialist, Paul Sass. He previously had a three-fight win streak ended by Michael Johnson, suffering a second round KO loss last October.

Strikeforce transfer, Bobby Green made a name for himself with a comeback third round submission victory over Jacob Volkmann at UFC 156. He’s now won five straight fights in his career, including victories over James Terry and Matt Ricehouse.
