Just a little under 400 kilometers from Josh Koscheck's Dethrone Base Camp, the former UFC #1 contender will welcome KO kingpin 'Ruthless' Robbie Lawler back to the Octagon. 

If this one goes according to planned, Koscheck and Lawler will play a little game of "Last Man Standing" come February 23rd in Anaheim.

Not only will it be Lawler's first fight under the UFC banner since he lost to former Middleweight champion  Evan Tanner back on October 22nd of 2004, it'll also be his first time competing as a Welterweight since Nick Diaz face planted his face firmly on the canvas at UFC 47.

Let's go inside the numbers for this recently announced match up between Koscheck and Lawler below.

84 - The KO/TKO ratio possessed by the "Ruthless" one. Of Lawler's 19 victories, 16 of them have come via KO or TKO finish.  3046 - Days it will be since Lawler last competed inside of the Octagon come fight night.  21 - Number of fights Koscheck has competed in as a UFC employee since Lawler left the promotion. 2 - The amount of combined times these fighters have been KO'ed. With 52 fights between them, each fighter has only been knocked out once - both in spectacular fashion.  9 - Title fights. Lawler, the former EliteXC champion,  has competed in 8 under various promotions. Koscheck's one title fight brought him 25 full minutes of pain via the continuous right eye jabbery of Georges St. Pierre. 3:36:40 - The amount of time Josh Koscheck has spent competiting inside of the Octagon. That's 3 hours, 36 minutes, and 40 seconds. photo credit - sherdog Stat props - fightmetric
