ST. LOUIS -- In front of a home crowd, Robbie Lawler took out a legend, knocking out Matt Lindland in 0:57 on Saturday night.
Lawler knocked Lindland out cold with an uppercut followed by a right hook. Lawler grazed Lindland's head while on the ground, but then stopped before throwing the next punch when he saw Lindland was out.
"I didn't expect him to stand with me. I was so worried about takedowns, so I went after it," Lawler said after the fight.
Lindland walked out of the cage on his own after the fight. This is the second time that he's been knocked out frighteningly in two years, as Vitor Belfort took him out in 0:37 at Affliction early in 2009.
