TUF 1 veteran Josh Koscheck was already on his way out of the realm of competitive UFC fighters by the time he met Robbie Lawler in the cage back in 2013. But if you wanted to say that Lawler helped speed up the process, and make sure that Koscheck would forevermore be prone to knockouts, well, you wouldn’t be lying.
This weekend, Lawler – now the ex-welterweight champ – takes on Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of UFC on FOX 26. There will be some heavy leather thrown. Most of it probably from Lawler himself. But before people start losing some brain cells in that cage, take a moment to reflect upon Koscheck, and how many Lawler so forcefully took from him.
