UFC 121 Results: Tom Lawlor Dominates Patrick Cote

Patrick Cote and Tom Lawlor stepped into the Octagon to kick off the Spike TV undercard portion of UFC 121. Cote had fallen far since his shot at UFC middleweight king, Anderson Silva. After being out of action for a long time due to a knee injury suffered against Silva, Cote returned and lost a fight to Alan Belcher.

Tom Lawlor would do the Canadian no favors as he used his superior wrestling to get constant takedowns and do a lot of damage from top position with punches and elbows. At times Cote was able to work his way back to his feet but he was never able to do any damage or put Tom in the slightest bit of trouble over the fifteen minutes of action.

Big John McCarthy disappointed a lot of MMA fans by standing the fight up while Lawlor was actively working ground and pound. Regardless of if he was trying to assist in making the fight "entertaining" or not, it was bad reffing from a man once thought of as, without a doubt, the best in the business.

With the win Lawlor got a much needed win after losing his last two fights.
