He's not looking to mess around...
Robbie Lawler spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Matt Brown at UFC on FOX 12. Check out the highlights:
On people calling it a potential Fight of the Year candidate: "I'm not trying to go in there and mess around. He's a really good opponent, but I'm not looking to go back and forth. I'm looking to dictate and dominate this fight. That's what I trained to do."
On his busy fight schedule as of late: "I'm staying healthy; that's the thing. I didn't have to go into of these last two camps trying to get in shape, so I could work on things. I could work on fine-tuning skills and just getting better day to day."
On his strategy: "I'm just working on my technique. I'm not looking to finish. Those things come with technique and the right opportunity."
On wanting to dominate: "I'm a professional athlete. I'm fighting on FOX. This is a huge opportunity."
