It wasn’t easy, but he did it. Robbie Lawler had to come back to defeat Niko Vitale this in Hawaii at the ICON fights this weekend. It was Vitale hammering Lawler early with some big time shots, however, Lawler showed why he is becoming a more mature fighter coming back and finishing Vitale midway through the first round.

Niko Vitale was beating Lawler to the punch early on, but Robbie didn’t panic. He withstood the storm as Lawler landed a birrage of hooks that dropped Vitale and Robbie pounced on the hometown man from Hawaii winning the fight at 3:38 of Round 1. Jason “Mayhem” Miller was in attedance and officially challenged Lawler, but Miller is on suspension and will not fight until the suspension is lifted.
