ROUND 1 - Lawlor standing southpaw and Weidman is orthodox. Right away Lawlor landing quick left straights. Weidman times a right hand from Lawler, grabs a double and turns the corner to take Lawlor down. Weidman passes to side while Lawlor's other side faces the cage. Weidman locks up a D'arce choke and within seconds puts Lawlor completely to sleep. He had to adjust hip down rather than belly down to tighten the choke, but it worked. Incredible performance by Chris Weidman. Aggressive, dominant and properly executed.
