Most guys usually take some downtime after a fight, and especially after the type of hard-fought five-rounder that Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks had at UFC 171.

Not Lawler, however. When he got back in the gym for a little bit of recovery training, Lawler’s body was telling him that five rounds wasn’t enough. It wanted more.

Now Lawler finds himself making a quick turn to fight another tough opponent in Jake Ellenberger at UFC 173.

Check out Lawler’s exclusive interview with MMAWeekly.com, as he talks about the quick turnaround, his move to American Top Team, and the fight with Johny Hendricks.

      could be an amazing fight but i still think, as of right now, brown is the big country of this division.

    Lawler needs money to live and survive. It’s not like Robbie is some Success story with all his losses. Earn it while you can because it ends quickly.
