Promotion officials are currently hard at work trying to assemble the UFC 157 fight card, and it looks like they’re trying to fill it up before everyone checks out for a little holiday cheer.

The UFC announced a couple of UFC 157 bouts on Wednesday, and MMAWeekly.com confirmed reports of an as yet unofficial match-up between Josh Koscheck and former Strikeforce fighter Robbie Lawler.

The Koscheck vs. Lawler bout was first reported by the Orange County Register.

The two will meet in a welterweight match-up on Feb. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Robbie will be 3 and out in the UFC, I believe.

You may be right but I'm hoping he sticks around. I've always liked him

I have always preferred Lawler at MW. I cant even remember the last time he competed at 170. I'll be rooting for Robbie but more than likely wont be taking him as my pick

I knew kos was gonna be on the card. But never thought
About this fight. Maybe thought tyronne Woodley.

I like this fight. But Robbie hasn't fought at welterweight since matt Hughes was champ
That was the reason he moved up to middleweight I believe it was after nick Diaz knocked him out
That was like maybe 8 or 9 years ago

I do like Robbie. I actually hopes he wins

I love Robbie Lawler. I'll be rooting for him in the upset.

But if Kos is smart he should be able to wrestle him to death.

Spot on. This is really a terrible match up. I'm not very interested in seeing Kos vs Daley 2 at this point. They should have matched him up with Erik Silva so that we could at least see some fireworks.

Bad match up for Robbie. I got Kos all day in this one.

Damn. I'm a huge Lawler fan but his ground game is shit. Can't stand Koscheck, though. Here's to hoping Lawler knocks him around!

Bleh. Both equally unimpressive.

Kos I think will try and stand with Lawler unless Lawler hits him good, which doesn't seem likely at this point.

I would like to see Lawler KO Kos.

Kos via UD........damn it makes my stomach turn to even pick him to win, can't stand him, his attitude, or his stupid hair

Why is Lawler stepping over guys like Hathaway, Pyle, Pearce and a butload more to fight Kos?!

Joe Silva...

Pierce just lost to Kos not too long ago.

I hate this match up for Lawler as a fan of his, it should be a humpfest if Kos is smart.

Should have been Lawler/Cote or Lawler/Leben

this is great. i hope he KO's Kos but i doubt it. i think he'll probably get out worked. still glad to see him back in the ufc.

Im just happy Lawler is back in the UFC, regardless of who he fights

I am glad he is back and agree eith the match up actually as Kos seems to want to box instead of grapple lately. A fight vs Leben should definitely happen though....good call on that proposal!

Lawler/Leben should have been the one in my opinion
