“I’m not too worried about what that guy’s going to do. I’m worried about what I’m going to do to him,” Lawler said. “That’s something he should worry about.”
It would seem the ultimate motivation for this fight would come from the prize at the end of the rainbow — in this case a shot at the welterweight title and for Lawler a shot at redemption against Hendricks. While that may serve as a reason to get up a little earlier in the morning or stay in the gym for an extra hour in the afternoon, Lawler puts his best poker face forward and stonewalls the idea that he needs a title dangling overhead so he’ll want to fight.
If there’s one thing you should know about Robbie Lawler it’s that he loves to fight because fighting is what he was made to do.
“I’m not worried about the belt right now,” Lawler said. “I’m worried about being the best I can be and put on a show for all the fans. It’s going to be exciting.”
