Robbie Lawler, one of the UFC's most dominant champions over the past two years, was KO'd in dramatic fashion at UFC 201 Saturday night.

Tyron Woodley proved that anything can happen in a fight when he knocked Lawler down with a right hand and then finished him on the ground in the first round.

Although Lawler waged outstanding stand-up wars with Rory MacDonald, Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit, he couldn't handle Woodley's fast hands and power.

Lawler came out tentative and paid the price. Stephen "Wonderboy" Jackson is likely in line for the next title shot. After the fight, Woodley called out Nick Diaz, saying he wanted to fight him in three weeks at UFC 202.
