Tom Lawlor had originally been scheduled to face Maiquel Falcao at UFC 134, but Falcao's Zuffa release and subsequent signing with a small Alberta promotion put a damper on that. Lawlor will be moving to a new card though, and will get a tough replacement opponent. TUF 11 cast member Kyle Noke, currently 3-0 under the UFC banner, will step up to face Lawlor on August 14th in Milwaukee. MMAWeekly has it:
Facing Lawlor at the UFC on Versus 5 card will be fellow ‘Ultimate Fighter’ alum Kyle Noke (19-4-1) who has looked outstanding in his 3 fights since the reality show.
Noke and Lawlor meet on the August 14 card for the UFC’s first ever trip to the state of Wisconsin.
Lawlor (7-3) was able to keep his spot in the company with a huge decision win over former middleweight title challenger Patrick Cote back in October at UFC 121. He is also a former TUF guy as well, participating in the reality show's 8th season. Noke is coming off winning a $75,000 submission of the night bonus with his 95 second choke victory over Chris Camozzi at UFC 127. Should be good.
