Robbie Lawler On Title Shot Against Hendricks: “Cool”

5

Getting a crack at the UFC Welterweight Championship might be something most would get extremely excited about. That is of course if your name isn’t Robbie Lawler.

With Georges St. Pierre stepping away from MMA, Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks were awarded the opportunity to fight for the vacated 170lb title.

When MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani reached out to Lawler’s manager Monte Cox for a reaction, the typically quiet Lawler kept his emotions in check.

“He was excited as only Robbie can be. He said, Cool.” Cox stated.
