UFC 173 results: Lawler TKO's Ellenberger in 3rd


Also featured on the UFC 173 PPV was an intriguing welterweight match-up between number one ranked Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger.

The welterweight contender's fight between "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger didn't quite deliver the nonstop-fireworks many expected.

What it showed, instead, was a mature Lawler who is totally in control. Just two months after nearly winning the championship in the early leader for Fight of the Year against Johny Hendricks, Lawler was in command on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Lawler didn't get goaded into a firefight with the heavy-hitting Ellenberger. Instead, he slowly and methodically picked him apart, wore him down, and broke his will.

In the end, he got his finish, too. Lawler finished the job via TKO at 3:06 of the third round to win for the fourth time in his past five fights.

Two of the most exciting fighters at welterweight. It's unfortunate Nick Diaz is inactive. Lawler, Brown, Rory and Nick would make for a great eliminator tourney.

Am I the only one that wants to see Brown vs Lawler?Lawler should take that one easily but it'd be an entertaining fight for sure.

^ Matt Brown deserves a shot? Give him a top 5 or top 10 then maybe. He's super exciting and glad he turned his career around but not title shot worthy yet

He does and you can't really say anyone else at ww has earned a title shot aside from Matt Brown, maybe.
