It was a night when a special announcement made after the first pay-per-view bout threatened to overshadow one of the UFC’s best cards of the year.

The signing of former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks to the UFC roster sent shockwaves through the mixed martial arts world. But it was the improbable career comeback of Robbie Lawler—once considered one of the best prospects the sport had ever seen—that will be the true enduring story of UFC 181.

Lawler‘s capture of the UFC welterweight championship with a split-decision win over Johny Hendricks in the main event was a narrow one along the thinnest of edges. I scored the fight for Hendricks, but the moments waiting for the decision to be announced in the arena were filled with the kind of knowledge that goes a little something like this: That was a close fight. I think Hendricks won. But I also think have this feeling that Lawler is going to get the nod.

And he did. Though judge Glenn Trowbridge’s 49-46 scorecard for Lawler bordered on egregious, it is hard to take issue with the decision as a whole. You cannot say Lawler did not come to fight; he vaulted out of his corner as if shot out of a cannon and attacked from the opening bell.

After that initial explosion, he disappeared for most of the middle rounds. It appeared he’d suffered some kind of injury, or an adrenaline dump; there was no way to explain his lack of offense.

But Hendricks did not capitalize. He landed plenty of strikes, but spent more time than he should’ve just pressing Lawler against the Octagon wall. And that is where Lawler scored points; Hendricks’ inactivity worked against him. It worked for Georges St-Pierre for years, but Hendricks is not afforded the same graces.

Lawler used those moments of downtime to land strikes of his own. They were moments that typically are not favored highly by mixed martial arts judges; on this occasion, however, Lawler came out on the winning side. And when Matt Hughes strapped the welterweight championship around Lawler‘s waist, it truly was the completion of an absolutely remarkable career comeback.

Think back to five years ago, or to the time Lawler was choked out by the much smaller welterweight Jake Shields. We viewed Lawler as a waste of potential, as someone who never lived up to what he could have ultimately been. How fitting is it, then, that it took a return trip to the UFC to truly reinvigorate Lawler, that he is better than ever as he approaches his 15th year in the sport?

The major takeaway from this fight, as it was with the first bout between Hendricks and Lawler, is that they are evenly matched. They are so very close in skill level, and even if they face off 10 times—and we will assuredly see them fight at least one more time—they would probably split wins and losses down the middle.

This is not Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos, where one fighter has clearly demonstrated superiority over his opponent. This is a matchup of two outstanding fighters who are clearly on the same level.

We do not yet know what to make of Lawler‘s championship reign. His next opponent will be Rory MacDonald, and the title defense will likely happen in Canada. Lawler has already defeated MacDonald once. Beyond that, Hendricks will assuredly be waiting for one more go-round, and there is Tyron Woodley, Matt Brown, Tarec Saffiedine and others.

But this night belonged to Lawler. At long last, from the grinding days with Miletich and Hughes and Pulver all the way to the lows in Strikeforce, Lawler has returned from the abyss. At long last, he is a champion.

“What a fight,” Lawler said at the post-fight press conference. “What a fight.” 

What a fight, indeed.

Dan Hardy has a nice, comfy job of calling fights for the UFC. Most fans would love to be in his position, but Hardy has a plan to step back into the Octagon once more.

Speaking on MMA Junkie Radio (transcribed by MMA Junkie’s Steven Marrocco), Hardy shared that he received encouraging news in regard to his Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and has an idea of whom he would want to fight if he’s cleared for action once again.

Diego Sanchez, because after Ross Pearson got robbed, that was one of the worst decisions I’ve ever seen,” he said.

Ross Pearson and Diego Sanchez fought at UFC Fight Night 42, a bout that saw Sanchez pick up a split-decision victory. The scoring was so bad that one of the judges managed to give Sanchez a round in which he was knocked down by Pearson.

UFC president Dana White would subsequently call the result “insanity,” via ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto, and would move on as if Pearson had won the fight. However, based on his post-fight press conference, Sanchez is still certain he won the fight.

Hardy would go on to further explain why he’d like to fight Sanchez, giving the Jackson’s MMA fighter a sort of backhanded compliment.

I’m a huge Diego fan, but for me, he is what’s wrong with mixed martial arts right now. He is the 20th century bullheaded martial artist that walks forward and fights with their face. … I think Diego represents the old school, where you just walk forward in a boxing stance and see who falls over first.

Sanchez’s style has certainly made him must-see TV during his UFC tenure because his game plan rarely involves moving backwards. His wars with Gilbert Melendez and Martin Kampmann provided MMA fans with plenty of excitement.

Of course, that method of fighting comes with a heavy price, and it’s clear that Sanchez has begun to feel the effects of it. Listening to Sanchez speak following his battle with Melendez, you can hear the slurred speech that’s become all too common with legends of boxing’s past.

Hardy has a few obstacles to overcome before going up against competition, and with him doing so well as a commentator, the UFC isn’t in any rush to get him back into the cage. The recent Stefan Struve mishap at UFC 175 also has to weigh heavily on the company’s decision to put Hardy back in action.

Prior to trading in his gloves for a suit, Hardy had become one of the main players in the UFC’s overseas expansion plans. The UFC heavily pushed and hyped Hardy for his fight against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 111, but Hardy would fall like so many before him to the relentless assault from GSP.

A string of defeats left many wondering why Hardy was still employed with the UFC. But eventually, Hardy would figure things out and strung together back-to-back wins in 2012.
