The UFC is investing in Robbie Lawler's second run at 170 pounds.

Lawler's manager, Monte Cox, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the promotion has signed the fighter to a new multi-fight agreement following his first-round knockout of Josh Koshcheck at this past weekend's UFC 157 event.

Cox declined comment on the terms of the agreement. Lawler (20-9 MMA, 5-3 UFC) currently is awaiting his next fight.

I like it. He took out a guy that was a top 10 guy for a long time.

Good for Robbie. I thought he was on his way out, and maybe fighting for smaller organizations.

Robbies always a fun fighter to watch--so really glad he's going to be sticking around. Wouldn't mind seeing him against Tarec Saffiedine or the winner of Gomi/Sanchez next.

"Reborn" Robbie Lawler

I don't see a lot of fellas @ 170 calling him out anytime soon.....they will call out Koscheck instead.

Been wondering about this.

Did anyone do a poll?

Whats the consensus opinion on that stoppage?
