UFC fighter turned pro wrestler “Filthy” Tom Lawlor has answered the open challenge and will face 2004 Olympic wrestler Jeff Cobb at MLW: One-Shot at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, FL on Thursday night October 5th.

A prolific finisher, Lawlor stepped away from the UFC with a respectable record of 10-6 (1 NC), racking up eight stoppages in 10 wins, four of them by way of submission. Not surprisingly, those skills will be called upon this October in “The Sunshine State.”

“I’ve seen Lawlor in the Octagon and respect what he’s done in the UFC but sometimes he gets a little carried away having fun.  If he tries to clown around with me, I’ll drop him on his head. I take this sport very seriously,” said Lawlor’s opponent Jeff Cobb.

Competing in Orlando on October 5th is a bit of a homecoming for Lawlor, who graduated the University of Central Florida with a B.S. in Social Studies Education. “I’m gonna chew him up like corn on the cob.”
