Strikeforce Live Blog: Robbie Lawler vs. Adlan Amagov Updates

This is the Strikeforce live blog for Robbie Lawler vs. Adlan Amagov, a middleweight bout on tonight's Strikeforce on Showtime event from the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Lawler (18-8), who lost both his fights in 2011 against Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza and Tim Kennedy, is looking to prevent the first three-fight skid of his career. Russia's Amagov (9-1-1) is taking a step up in competition after winning twice on Strikeforce Challengers shows in 2011.

The live blog is below.



Round 1: Lawler aggressively moves forward only to have Amagov dump him down with a quick double-leg. Lawler tries to get up and Amagov holds a front headlock. Amagov lands an illegal knee and loses a point. Lawler grazes Amagov on the top of the head with a huge flying knee and Amagov collapses face first to the floor. Lawler turns around and finishes with left hands.

Lawler jumped so high with the flying knee that he almost jumped over Amagov. Cool finish.

Robbie Lawler wins via TKO (flying knee followed by punches) - Round 1, 1:48
