SAN JOSE, Calif. Michael Jordan Jersey . -- Robbie Lawler withstood a flurry of stinging punches by Matt Brown in the fifth round and held on for a unanimous decision Saturday night, setting up a rematch with UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks. Lawler (24-10) led comfortably throughout the fight and was never hit very hard until Brown landed four straight punches with just over two minutes remaining. Lawler, the top-ranked contender, smiled then landed a kick to Browns stomach. Lawler later absorbed a hard right from the bloodied Brown (21-12) before holding on for his fifth win in the last six fights. Two judges scored it 49-46 and the third had it 48-47. That puts Lawler in line for another shot at the welterweight championship. The 32-year-old lost a unanimous decision to Hendricks on May 15 when the two fought for the vacant title. Hendricks injured an arm and only recently returned, which means the fight will likely happen next year. UFC President Dana White said he already has an idea when the fight will be but declined to disclose the date. That will give Lawler sufficient time to rest after a grueling past 12 months. His win over Brown came on the heels of wins over Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald and Bobby Voelker, along with the close loss to Hendricks. "Im very excited," Lawler said. "(Hendricks) is nursing some injuries, but Im going to be the one thats waiting for him." Lawler definitely earned the right after holding off the relentless Brown, who suffered a possible hand injury and had to be taken to a hospital for examination. That the fight went the distance shocked White. "I said yesterday that if this fight went five rounds, Id walk back to Las Vegas," White said. "Ill see everyone in Vegas on Thursday." Lawler set the tone early, landing a quick combination to Browns head in the opening seconds. The two fighters later exchanged hard right hooks, Brown suffering a small cut near his left eye. Brown, who had won seven consecutive bouts going into the night, recovered in the second to land a stinging combination of his own but continued to fight mostly from the outside while trying to stay away from Lawlers inside attack. Lawler stayed patient and methodical, stalking Brown and repeatedly scoring with his left hand. Blood poured down Browns nose in the fifth, and he was also bleeding from his left ear over the final two rounds but didnt go down. White said afterward that the fifth-ranked Brown will move up in the rankings despite the loss. "He came toe-to-toe with me," Lawler said. "Not many people will do that. He just kept coming." In the nights quickest bout, Anthony Johnson won by TKO over Rogerio Nogueira 44 seconds into the first round. Johnson (18-4) got Nogueira (21-6) backed up against the cage then floored the 38-year-old with a series of hard uppercuts that opened a deep cut and led to the stoppage. Also on the undercard, featherweight Dennis Bermudez (15-3) got veteran Clay Guida to tap out midway through the second round. Bermudez pressed the action and repeatedly scored with punches to Guidas right eye before catching Guida (31-12) in a rear neck choke for his seventh straight win. Bobby Green (23-5) won his eighth consecutive fight, earning a split decision over third-ranked Josh Thompson (20-7) in a lightweight fight. Gustav Forsling Jersey . And I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my experiences gained through International competition and the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Seven NHL referees and six linesmen will be assigned upcoming games in Sochi by the IIHF as part of their 28-man officiating roster comprised of 14 refs and 14 linesmen.

He knows the nickel, the corner, the safety, the joker, the dime. He can play a lot of different spots for us, Del Rio said. When you learn safety, youre forced to learn all those different positions and you have a great feel for how it all ties together. I see his confidence growing.Not just on defence, either. Bolden has emerged as a special teams standout.He led the team with a dozen special teams tackles and has emerged as the primary kickoff returner heading into the playoffs. His bursts of 77 and 76 yards the last two weeks boosted his season average to nearly 30 yards per return.The way hes playing on special teams right now is outstanding, Del Rio said. The way hes preparing each week to play with great energy and being able to do different roles is very valuable for us.Youd think Bolden would be, well, emboldened by such high praise. No. He insists hes not even at full strength yet following knee surgery that scuttled his senior season.When his teammates were patting him on the back and the crowd was going crazy after he returned the second-half kickoff to the Oakland 30-yard line last week, Bolden was ...Ticked, he said. Im in front, thats supposed to be six.After weaving his way past the first wave of tacklers thanks to a block by rookie Cody Latimer, Bolden was sprinting up the Raiders sideline when Sebastian Janikowski got a hand on him. That allowed Chance Casey to catch up and knock him out of bounds.Two plays later, C.J. Anderson scored.Dont get me wrong, Im excited that I made a big play, Bolden said, but Im just disappointed that it wasnt as big as I would have liked.Bolden figures to have an impact in the playoffs either on speciall teams or from scrimmage, especially if safeties T. Tony Esposito Jersey. J. Ward (neck) and David Bruton Jr. (head) are still limited.I can remember being in a team meeting about midseason and were separating the DB room, safeties and corners, and I hear Omar, Which room am I in this time? coach John Fox said. Hes just a guy whos a good football player. ... And hes always been a really good fourth-down player, and the return thing, we were juggling until we found the right combination and hes slipped into that role very well, too.Fox said Bolden laid the foundation for Pro Bowl consideration as a special teams ace next season.For such a fast guy, Bolden sure has been patient.His rookie year he had a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the preseason. But six weeks later, the Broncos grabbed Trindon Holliday off waivers and Bolden began biding his time again.Hes missed just one game in his NFL career and has carved out niches in the secondary and on special teams.And hes thrilled to be the teams kick returner now. He first fell in love with the game as a youngster zipping past other kids with the ball in his hands and a head of steam, never one to let fear of injury slow him down.I feel like Im running too fast that guys dont want to tackle me, Bolden said. Thats how Id look at it. Because when I see somebody running fast, Im like, Oh, thats going to hurt. Im moving too fast; most guys dont want that kind of collision, you know?The Broncos took a chance on Bolden in 2012, drafting him in the third round even though he missed all of 2011.The film we saw of him when he was healthy, he was very good, Fox said. Coming off a knee injury and getting used to the NFL season took him a minute and now hes starting to flourish.Bolden figures he has one more step to make, though.Pre-surgery, I wouldnt have been caught, he said. Its getting there, though. Its about like 98, 97 per cent. Were close.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
