One lightning bolt of a right hand was all it took to knock
Lawler from his throne.
Woodley cut down his
American Top Team stablemate with first-round punches to
capture the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight
title in the UFC
201 main event on Saturday at Philips Arena in Atlanta. Stopped
by strikes for the first time since Nick Diaz did
the honors more than 12 years ago, Lawler succumbed to blows 2:12
into round one.
Speed was the difference. After a somewhat tepid start, Woodley
floored the champion with a right hook to the jaw. Lawler came to
rest against the cage, where he was met with a series of stabbing
right hands that left him incapable of defending himself and forced
referee Dan Miragliotta to act on his behalf. It brought an end to
a remarkable run that saw the “Ruthless” one rattle off five
straight wins, two of them in “Fight of the Year” performances. All
this from a man that had been left for dead by the masses following
a disappointing 3-5 run in Strikeforce.
