Robbie Lawler's reign of terror over the UFC welterweight division was an unlikely one, but he wants it back.
After suffering a tough knockout loss to Tyron Woodley, Lawler didn't hesitate to tell reporters at the UFC post-fight press conference that he wanted a rematch against his UFC 201 foe. While it's unlikely that would occur immediately, Lawler at least tossed the idea out there.
"Obviously, I think that if I went back in there, I would get a win," Lawler said. "Deserve and getting are two different things, but yeah, I feel I deserve something. But we’ll see if I get it.”
Lawler knows that his loss wasn't a tough one to break down, as it was a pretty straightforward knockout. Despite the vicious loss, Lawler said that he felt good ahead of the UFC 201 bout.
“He caught me with the old T-Wood bomb. I was just sitting back a little too much, and he took advantage of it. It was his night…I think it’s just a guy who took advantage of a big punch and rocked me and jumped on and finished the job. I’m not going to speculate. I felt great going into the fight, so no excuses," said Lawler.
