Patience was the name of the game early here. Brown went high with a kick but Lawler blocked it and stayed up. They were feeling each other out with feints and pawing jabs.
Another head kick missed but Brown followed it up with a body kick that landed with a slap. Just over two minutes in, Brown shot in for a takedown, completing it without much effort. Robbie did get right back to his feet and pushed away to reset in the center.
Once there, Lawler was slipping more of Brown's punches. So he went with a spinning back kick that landed but he ate a counter right hand.
"The Immortal" found some success getting in and throwing elbows in the clinch. Lawler broke away but ate another big kick to the body. This was Brown's round, in pretty much every way.
