Robbie Lawler: Im Not Even Looking at the Title Picture Right Now
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 04.02.2014



Top ranked UFC welterweight fighter Robbie Lawler recently spoke about his upcoming welterweight battle with Jake Ellenberger set for UFC 173. Lawler takes the fight with a quick turnaround after his grueling five-round battle with Johny Hendricks at UFC 171, where Lawler failed to capture UFC welterweight strap. Below are some highlights.

Lawler on his loss at UFC 171: "I'm not dwelling on the loss at all. It comes down to getting better, working on my skills and pushing myself to get better. That's about it. The opportunity arose where I could get a fight. I'm making the most of it. I'm back in the gym and working out, getting my body ready."

Lawler on how he was able to work out again the Monday after his fight with Hendricks: "I worked out that Monday after the fight, just to get some blood flowing in my muscles (and) work out any sore muscles, and then I rested for the next week. After a week I started lifting, pushing myself harder than I normally do a week out from a fight. Now I'm just right back in it and pushing myself to get better."

Lawler's thoughts on Ellenberger as an opponent: "He's a quality opponent. He's one of the top fighters in the UFC right now at 170. He brings power, he brings wrestling, he brings a lot of skills to the table and I need to be sharp to beat a guy like him."

Lawler on not looking at the title picture right now: "I'm not even looking at the title picture right now. I'm looking at Jake as a huge test and I need to get ready for him. I'm not looking past him or where this puts me on the list of all the fighters in the division. I know I just need to push myself, get better and everything else will take care of itself."
