Josh Koscheck returns to the Octagon for the first time since May to welcome Robbie Lawler back to the organization and division.
Koscheck dropped a split decision to Johny Hendricks back at UFC on FOX: Diaz vs. Miller. The win would have elevated him back into title contention. Now he will try to get things going once again in 2013.
Lawler will be back inside the Octagon for the first time since UFC 50 back in 2004. He has dropped three of his last four bouts, but will hope a return to 170 pounds will give him a fresh start as the calendar turns.
This is how the battle between the two hard-throwing welterweights stacks up.
