Robbie Lawler-Josh Koscheck Set For UFC 157

Robbie Lawler is returning to the UFC, as the former Strikeforce contender will meet Josh Koscheck at UFC 157.

The Orange County Register first reported the bout late Wednesday night. The card takes place February 23 from Anaheim.

Lawler (19-9) went 4-3 during a previous run in the UFC. He moved on to Icon Sport and EliteXC before entering Strikeforce where he posted a 3-5 mark.

Koscheck (17-6) has been on the sidelines for the majority of 2012 after suffering an injury. He was set to face Jake Ellenberger this past summer, but the fight was cancelled due to the injury.
