PREDICTION

Lawler's return to the welterweight division is a welcome one, chiefly because it figures to aid his gas tank. There has never been any question about his talent, the problem is he falls asleep and gives away rounds. Maybe a UFC cage and a new weight class wakes him up, but as of right now …

KOSCHECK IS THE PICK.
