Between the outstanding showing from Demetrious Johnson and the appalling dud between Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald, fight fans have plenty to talk about after UFC on Fox 8.
One performance that should not be overlooked came from Robbie Lawler.
He appeared to be in tremendous shape from the opening bell. With excellent timing, the former Elite XC champion scored a knockout victory only 24 ticks into the second frame.
With this victory, Lawler is 2-0 since returning to the UFC welterweight division. As the No. 9 contender to Georges St-Pierre's championship, the next booking for "Ruthless" could determine whether or not he contends for gold in 2014.
Here is a look at five fights for Lawler to take next.
