Robbie Lawler retirement fight

Robbie Lawler ended his fighting career on a high note with a stunning finish in his ultimate fight at UFC 290.

Stating that this Saturday bout would be his swansong, the ex-welterweight champion required a mere 38 seconds to overpower Niko Price, employing a fierce barrage of punches reminiscent of his legendary performances. It was a sequence of left hooks, culminating in a left uppercut that sent Price tumbling to the mat, signalling to Lawler that the match was won.

Lawler exited the scene as the referee halted the match, sparking a wave of cheering from the crowd assembled in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

“The training camp was tough, nothing seemed to fall into place,” Lawler commented post-fight. “Today, for the first time, I felt on form, my feet were nimble. I had a feeling that I would achieve something notable today, and I ended up landing some serious blows.”

Known for his quick starts, Price advanced on Lawler as soon as the referee gave the go-ahead from the corner – a decision that proved fatal.

Lawler promptly engaged with Price, shortening the gap to unleash a torrent of potent punches. Eventually, Lawler seized the back of Price’s head and initiated a flurry of left hand punches.

With every successive blow connecting, Price fell to the canvas, and Lawler commemorated his last fight with a spectacular first-round knockout.

“It felt good,” Lawler remarked on his finale. “It’s the conclusion of my career. I was landing some powerful blows in critical areas – temples, chin. It was overwhelming. I was moving well. It’s gratifying to conclude my career in this way. I’m grateful for the years of support.”

After his victory, a highlight reel video was played by the UFC in homage to Lawler. Holding back tears, he watched highlights of his career’s significant moments. Famous for his stoic persona, Lawler allowed his emotions to surface as he officially retired, basking in the moment with the fans present and millions watching worldwide.

“It’s incredible,” said Lawler. “I’ve had an extensive career. Numerous people have helped me reach where I am today, and without them, none of this would have been possible. I feel blessed. I’m grateful.”

Lawler concludes his career with a record of 30-16 and one no contest, including 22 knockouts and title reigns in the UFC, Elite XC, ICON Sport, and SuperBrawl promotions.
