It’s entirely possible that, during the course of Saturday night’s UFC 189, Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald could slip out of their gloves and into street clothes, sneak out of a side door, and spend the rest of the evening at the slot machines, and no one would even notice.
Seriously, there is a welterweight title fight scheduled, but all eyes are on Conor McGregor in the main event. And that ain’t right.
Perhaps to rectify this inequitable situation, and maybe drum up some additional interest in an event that is already going to be huge, the folks at the UFC have given Lawler and MacDonald the “Countdown” treatment.
Watch it. Enjoy it. Recognize and respect these two welterweights. They deserve your love.
