Robbie Lawler vs. Melvin Manhoef, Strikeforce: Miami. Coming off a submission loss to Jake Shields, Lawler bounced back with a KO win this time around. In this one-round fight, the Dutchman Manhoef was punishing the CRAP out of Lawler’s lead leg with brutal inside leg kicks. Lawler was limping and grimacing in pain during, and moreso immediately after the fight ended. He took quite a bit of punishment but ended up catching Manhoef with an overhand right. Manhoef was dropping his hands after each kick, and Lawler took advantage.
