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.

Siyar Bahadurzada saw a seven-fight win streak come to an end at UFC on Fuel TV 8, dropping a unanimous decision to Dong Hyun Kim. He previously made his UFC debut in April of last year, making a quick first impression with a 42-second knockout victory over Paulo Thiago.
