There’s been plenty of compelling stories in MMA over the last couple of years, but without question, one of the most interesting and surprising has been the championship rise of Robbie Lawler.
As any old school fan will tell you, Lawler has long been a fan favorite due to his punishing striking game, but by 2012, not many folks viewed “Ruthless” as a world beater. Well, as the video below showcases, since Lawler returned to the UFC in 2013 he’s done nothing but impress.
Tonight at UFC 195 he’ll look to defend the welterweight belt for a second time when he faces Carlos Condit. No matter what happens, nothing can change the fact that Lawler has become one of the best fighters on the planet, thanks to a ton of hardwork and perseverance.
