"..Promotion officials are currently hard at work trying to assemble the UFC 157 fight card, and it looks like they’re trying to fill it up before everyone checks out for a little holiday cheer.

The UFC announced a couple of UFC 157 bouts on Wednesday, and MMAWeekly.com confirmed reports of an as yet unofficial match-up between Josh Koscheck and former Strikeforce fighter Robbie Lawler.

The Koscheck vs. Lawler bout was first reported by the Orange County Register.

The two will meet in a welterweight match-up on Feb. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Koscheck (17-6) enters the bout coming off of a split decision loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC on Fox 3 back in May. He had been slated to face Jake Ellenberger in September, but had to pull out of the fight due to a back injury.

Lawler (19-9) has had a much rougher go of it over the past few years. His tenure in Strikeforce never saw him gain any traction, amassing a 3-5 record while fighting for the promotion.

He’ll be looking to ignite a new spark in his career at UFC 157. The fight marks Lawler’s drop to welterweight and his return to the Octagon.

Lawler rose to prominence during his first tenure in the UFC, fighting there from 2002 to 2004, primarily as a welterweight.

Ronda Rousey puts her newly minted UFC women’s bantamweight championship belt on the line against Liz Carmouche in the UFC 157 main event.

Stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com for all the latest UFC 157 news and fight card updates."

Well it's good to see Robbie back, but giving him a top ten WW doesn't make any sense to me.

I like the card, but man Mendes is getting another tomato can, I like Manny well enough but he just got over a three fight losing streak and now he gets the number 2 FW in the world.

Wil be a good fight if Lawler can survive the cut and defend some takedowns.

Not interested, after the way he fought Larkin and Kennedy I'm over Lawler. Koscheck easily.

Also a historic card with the first women's fight in UFC history as well as the first openly gay fighter - it's good to see

Just like all the old school Miletich guys, I <3 me some Robbie Lawler. He has very underrated wrestling and I think he will be an absolute beast at 170. It'd been great for him to fight Patrick Cote. That has FOTY written all over it.
