Michael Kuiper may have gotten a little too comfortable, but despite an early-fight knee injury, Tom Lawlor capitalized on it.
In fact, in the first round, the Dutch fighter scored three of his own takedowns and then took top position when Lawlor tried to shoot in on an apparently injured knee late in the round.
“I didn’t hurt my knee, guys,” said Lawlor, who dedicated the fight to a sister he lost 12 years ago in a car accident. “Michael Kuiper hurt me knee on the first judo throw he did. It was hard to fight back from it.”
We didn't hear how bad his injury was, did we? Did he tear anything? It's been nine months now so it must have been serious.
