UFC Welterweight Robbie Lawler is getting ready to fight Matt Brown in what is being hyped as a possible fight of the year candidate, but Lawler does not believe that.
His thoughts on his strategy: “I’m just working on my technique. I’m not looking to finish, said Lawler. Those things come with technique and the right opportunity.”
Robbie Lawler (22-10) has 18 knockouts, 1 submission and 3 decision victories while he has been knocked out once, submitted five times and lost by decision four times.
His thoughts on his busy fight schedule as of late: “I’m staying healthy; that’s the thing. I didn’t have to go into of these last two camps trying to get in shape, so I could work on things. I could work on fine-tuning skills and just getting better day to day.”
Prior to joining the UFC once again, he in his two fights prior while fighting in Strikeforce, he beat Adlan Amagov via TKO at Strikeforce – Rockhold vs. Jardine on Jan / 07 / 2012. He then beat Lorenz Larkin via unanimous decision at Strikeforce – Rockhold vs. Kennedy on Jul / 14 / 2012.
His thoughts on people calling it a potential Fight of the Year candidate: “I’m not trying to go in there and mess around. He’s a really good opponent, but I’m not looking to go back and forth. I’m looking to dictate and dominate this fight. That’s what I trained to do.”
Lawler is 1-1 in his last two fights, he lost against Johny Hendricks via unanimous decision at UFC 171 – Hendricks vs. Lawler on Mar / 15 / 2014 for the Welterweight title. He is coming off a win over Jake Ellenberger at UFC 173.
