Justin Lawrence was pegged as an early favorite to win the recent season of The Ultimate Fighter. Instead, he’ll have to settle for putting together a highlight-reel moment.
Lawrence delivered a head-kick knockout against John Cofer after an entertaining two rounds of action, scoring a win in the third at The Ultimate Fighter: Live Finale.
“I’m here in the UFC and I’m here to stay,” Lawrence said.
Lawrence was defeated by Michael Chiesa, who will compete for the TUF against Al Iaquinta. The 22-year-old Lawrence is now a perfect 3-0 in his career.
The kick caught Cofer square on the chin, knocking him out cold. Lawrence, who trains with Blackhouse MMA, earned his first career KO victory.
