Conor McGregor, Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, blah, blah, blah! Yes, UFC 189 quickly approaches, and the clear-cut storyline going into the event is the injury-riddled triangle between an Irishman, a Brazilian and an American. But believe it or not there are other fights on the card – yes, it’s true! And one of them involves a welterweight champ named Robbie Lawler defending his belt against challenger Rory MacDonald.
Funny story: I attended the UFC 189 World Tour’s stop in Manhattan, and on stage sat McGregor, Aldo, Lawler, MacDonald, and Dana White. Of course McGregor and Aldo did all the talking, but it was insane how invisible Lawler and MacDonald were. No one cared that they were there!
They probably didn’t even care!
Anyway, to make you care that Lawler is fighting next Saturday, here’s a vid of him in action. Enjoy.
