Age was a major factor here
Needed some anger in there, was a mad man in other fights, was almost like he was drugged
All respect to Lawler! Great fighter with a great attitude.
Oh shit this is my first time seen this, I didn’t know he ended up looking like that afterwards
He lost for more money
legendary t his is what a boss looks like
Matt hughes said he thought the Line was funny.
Who ever says Colby doesn’t have power look at RL face.
titulo en español.. entrevista en ingles..
what a badass
This is probably the best anyone had ever handled a tough loss
Diaz vs Lawler 2021!!’
he's just very chill and don't seem like he gets angry at all,he just brutalises guys but he's calm while doing it
A true warrior. True fighter
This guy is a master at not giving any info
He looks like he has a mullet
a real one…not too many around these days.
Damm, Robbie got the shit beat outta him..He can't even grasp what just happened.
Lawler is a bum now. But by God I respect/admire him.
Robbie "It's a learning experience Lawler
Robbie and Cerrone are true fighters
Robbie’s over the hill man way too many wars complete legend though
Can't wait to see Robbie in his next fight !
Robbie is called ruthless but he has great
God damn his face is banged up
Such a classy answer he gave for the Matt Hughes question
robbie lawyers eyes are pure black lol you dont wanna get this dude mad
And this is one reason why I like Robbie and wanted him to win over that nerd who gets dissed by girls he hires….
Seems really strange to me how both Woodley and Lawler got destroyed without really throwing hands at all by two guys who then go on to fight each other. Was this a big paid plan to get Lawler and Woodley to fight?
Astro Swiifty you ain’t wrong. I love Robbie but he got worked just like woodley did against kamaru. Imo a setup to set kamaru vs Colby and Woodley vs Robbie 2. Woodley pulled out
Lawler vs Usman PLEASE. Your a stand up man Lawler much respect!
Such a humble fighter
Robbie "Back to the drawing board" Lawler
‘Blockhead, the Human Punching Head’
Lawler is a stooge, he's basically an extension of the company now. No soul.
I was thinkin same
He literally sold out
"Get back to the drawing board"…like start fighting again. Lawler is great, but that fight was terrible. Unbelievable
Duuude his faaaaace
Real BMF ! ♥️
Damnn Colby made him look like junior dos Santos
I love Lawler even tho he beat my fellow countrymen in rory Macdonald bit hes just a real good pro wish there was more like him all these trash talking fighters r so fake it's good to see a true dude once in a while
I like Robbie, but dude barely through a punch. This is not normal.
I hope the UFC is paying this dude what he deserves. Even his loses are amazing fights. We are all entertained from his pain. That shit has to hurt bad and I hope he isn’t doing it for cheap. I hate Dana White for sure.
This dude is amazing.
Lets face it, Robbie Lawler broke after the Rory Mcdonald fight
Konrad Curze you say stupid shit. Face it.
Cowboy and Robbie are the only guys who take losses like real men
Seems like Robbie care about fighting ….not so much about winning or losing
This fool didn’t even fight lol
Fucken love u Robbie
No excuses. Business as usual. Robbie Lawler.
This fight was so fake. At least WWE is fun to watch.
Man, I wish he had brought the attitude he had against Ben Askren. He looked fucking scary that night, a blood thirsty monster. He seemed all bored and uninterested in this fight. It looked almost arranged. No killer instinct, just like "gimme my money and I'll go home".
There was nothing impressive about how Colby fought against Lawler. He just did what he was supposed to. There were plenty of counters that could've happened and holes in Colby's game that could be exploited BUT if you don't do anything against someone who is attacking you, there's not going to be much to talk about. It's just going to be seen as one guy being dominant and another taking punishment. There is nothing to be impressed by Colby. But a top notch Lawler would've handled Covington no question. Don't know what's going on with Lawler, but guaranteed if Usman is anything like he was with Woodley, Usman will bust him up and make him realize he's not getting the belt anytime soon, or at all.
Every ufc fan is disappointed rn. RL U ARE STILL RL !!! MUCH RESPECT.
Love Robbie, he is forever The Ruthless One because I know he can turn it on and knock people out but WOW…. this fight was rough to watch. So many times when he didn't pull the trigger, didn't combo up, didn't do much of anything… going this far down on the totem pole to 11th place and now losing to Colby, I just question whether his heart is in the sport anymore. He's been the Undisputed Champ for years and is one of the division's best and he just may be bored with competing. He doesn't have the fire he once had that made him a savage. And every fan hoped the loss after Woodley was a fluke and the fiery energy would return, but the closest we ever got to it afterwards was his fight with Askren, which Herb Dean ended up stopping wrongfully. That should've been the turnaround and maybe it just weighed him down even more mentally or emotionally. I'm surprised Dana didn't say after the fight that he's going to talk to Robbie to hear his thoughts on the fight game and if he should consider hanging it up. Maybe he did…. I haven't listened to the post conference yet. But there's no point taking a beating if you don't have the fire inside anymore and to lose to Covington, when opportunities were all around to make it a real fight says volumes. I'm watching the fight w/ family and we're thinking he's trying to tire Covington out like Ali and Rope-A-Dope him and then unleash on him to get the victory… but round after round after round, absolutely nothing. It's not good and I care about the dude. I want him to be healthy and safe. It's time for Lawler to seriously consider if now is the time to hang up his career as a UFC fighter.
And as a last add-on, what he's saying here in the beginning are things he has said repeatedly in times past. Wasn't able to do enough, back to the drawing board, etc. etc. Sounds like he's just going through the motions. IF it's time to hang it up, it's time. Ruthless is legend and future hall-of-famer. No shame in calling it a career right now brother if that's what he decides.
Lawler a class act. Covington is a scrub …cmon mentiining vigrins and nerds when your past 4th maybe 5th grade if your slow developung mentally ..is weak af kinda like that 10cent smile …the kid is a scrub ..you could give him a billion dollars and hed still be colby covington a kid who hasnt grown passed 4th grade ..i guess "those" types are there for a reason they garner alike fans … outside of america i dont think he would have an relevancy … good job guy …the world sees this "nerd basher" shakin hands with your president lol birds of a feather
Wow what a humble guy I like Robbie. This the first time I heard him speak and I think highly of them. He looks a hell of a lot meaner than he sounds and that's a good. Kobe look like a nice guy and then I heard him speak to that other guy after the fight and he sounded like a street thug
a true gentleman and not a showboat.
Robbie “Max Holloway” Lawler
Jesus he needs to go to the hospital.
My dawg look like his mouf hurting like a bih. Respect, tho. All day!!!!
Guys , this fight was 100% fixed. Anyone who thinks otherwise hasn't watched it closely enough. Couple of indicators :
1. Kept slipping and bobbing even the weakest of jabs without letting go when "clearly" in range. This has nothing to do with his fitness but his desire to actually get a win.
2. You might not have caught it but I clearly saw a very quick wink and a smirk right before when the decision was being announced.
3. His post fight interview seems like as though he isn't bothered at all.
4. Robbie and Dana have been working very closely off late ever since he signed a new deal. My feeling is that they might have a mutual understanding that he basically does what is in Dana's best interest without actually getting direct orders.
I just think at 37 he's decided that he'd rather have a longer career of what's remaining rather than go hunt for a title and risk hurting himself and his longetivity.
Please don't comment if you are media fed and delusional. This is business and Dana is a dirty dirty player. The whole organisation works under unspoken rules and mutual understandings . Most of the media press at events keep it very politically correct and never push on their boundaries of asking controversial questions anymore as they fear getting completly blacklisted.
Class act, a true professional! Hate all the trash talking. This the UFC not WWE. Rich Franklin, Randy C, Chuck L – kept the talk to a minimum and took care of business in the cage.
Back in the day when Robbie and Nick fought was the most epic fight I ever seen and made me a MMA fan. This guy is an old vet and crazy to think he still is fighting in the ufc.
Melvin gullard vs nate Diaz is a close a close second.
Real class act . Respect
Come on Lawler seen u fight way better bro
I don’t understand his strategy when it comes to that fight. He didn’t throw anything. So bizarre
Scratched by 500 cats paws! look at Robbies face looks like he been in a cat scratching comp! Well think this fight was fixed and felt for the guy having to give fake interview after explaining how he felt great in the octagon n best he felt in while! seriously if your gonna fix a fight at least put your hearts into the acting! that was embaressin to witness!!!!
The askren curse. Poor guy. Looks like a watermelon at an askren family reunion. Even has the matching dick holes
That was staged
Sell out or mental lose
Robbie is a great athlete and a great dude props to him he will be back (Class act)
If you block at least 500 punches with your face & it's Robbie Lawler doing the blocking with his face, something's not right. Robbie Lawler always go all out against any fighter. Just food for thought.
Am I tripping or does he kinda look like dos Santos right here
Robbie needs to retire .
I love Robbie, but he's had a rough couple years. He's an awesome fighter and a veteran of the sport with more class than nearly any fighter in the UFC. Wishing you well brother.
They forgot the most important question: Why didn't you throw any punches?
First time i watched an interview bout him.. WHAT A COOL DUDE!!
He gonna cry in the car
Lawler sold out he let the trumps by him out !
Draws fans the right way
Robbie Lawler Will Be Back, Calm Down Fake Fans…
ESPN is cancer
matt hughes tried to kill himself…its not funny colby
Shit looked so fixed. Don't want to hear all your bullshit either.
U need to retire bro…usman if anyone needs to speak english correctly its you mother fucker repect the COUNTRY your in try to get fat paid in that slave country you come from…i hope colby knocks your black ass the fuck out
MIKE PERRY OR JORGE MASVIDAL WILL FORCE THE REAL FIGHT OUT OF ROBBIE LAWLER THE ONLY WAY TO WAKE UP THE BEAST IS TO HAVE ANOTHER BEAST WAKE HIM UP.
No respect. Shit
Dude hardly threw a punch the whole fight :/
Robbie is a total pro and a great guy. Honest, always improving, humble, and with teflon confidence. This is just another reason why he's among my favorite fighters..
Poor Robbie. Coolest dude ever.
The fight was a FIX OR Robbie Lawler was on drugs OR Robbie lawler is an idiot that needs to be banned from fighting in UFC. It has to be one of those 3 things cause this man literaly did nothing in that fight. …he did absolutely nothing in that fight…all he did was move his head like it was a sparring session
You're done son, no drawing board
robbie " back to the drawing board" lawler
Lawler was paid to lose. We all know he can body Covington if he wanted to. UFC is trying make Cobington the guy.
I’ve been a Lawler fan for years….. but his performance was weak!! He threw about 5 punches that actually had bad intentions the whole fight.He appears to be about done…..
He didn’t show up!!!
Usmans dad is a CROOK!! This is his appeal being denied!!! Locked up in
jail until 6/2021 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxEW-SK9wN4 2nd
link shows usman lying on JRE show, saying his father is innocent, and
was only arrested because he's an immigrant lol! Usman is a fake and
He's still one of the top welterweights, but maybe he should retire while he is still healthy. He's made a lot of money.
JDS is my favorite fighter he’s very respectful here
Robbie all class Lawler
Man, he looks #ucked up!
Robbie surely got a BIG pay day to throw the fight..
Lawler is a vry positive guy… It is what it is…. I like it.
Time to retire no discussion.
If you're over 30 and get a loss 90% of the community shouts you should retire…
Robbie heart no longer in the game folks!
Like every other sport, fighters get old too. Let's see what Robbie can do to keep the career going, now will be a big challenge for him. If he takes a lower ranked guy and can pummel him, he could get a sort of gatekeeper role and keep things going. It's not about just reacting to this fight, it's about looking at his last several fights against guys who can strike. The trend is alarming. Even against Cowboy he didn't look so good and barely got that win IMO.
What happened to Robbie man? He used to be my favorite fighter now he just seems like he doesn't even try.he didn't even hardly throw any big shots in this fight just jabs.
Roby is talking like he is 20 jears old
Robbie Lawler doesnt like the GOSSIP TRASH That The media loves an puts out to fans that are fans NOT CAUSE of ITS professionalism but because of the cheap tmz,national Enquirer style it brings to their lives.These you tuber WANNABE are only interested in THE TRASH part of IT IT keeps them WORKING JUST like Robbie HAD MENTION dont put OUT TRASH.These ain't TRUE SPORT reporters..Look at THE image UFC is already GOIN TO sell put OUT, HAVING 2 clowns who are backing Hatred an Racism through out this country in front view , 2 trumps enjoying having a great TIME MEANWHILE A MASSACRE 20 plus people killed because of the hatred this family is causing.We ALL CAN SEE Colby AN THE trumps on his next video AN THE UFC promoting this trash.Robbie Lawler who is so respected doesnt say much but you see he tried or did HE ONE thing for sure he ain't to happy.The also trashing of Matt Hughes by Colby is white trash we all can SEE WERE this is leading TO ALSO SECURITY on stage WHEN COLBY being interview why that image UFC.
First I want to start off with, I'm not Colby hater, not at all fair play to him..
But man.. Robbie movement when standing was just levels above Colby and he was just dogging, not throwing anything, and there was hundreds of obvious chances he could've thrown something, but didn't… idk
I don't care what u all say getting hit over 500 times in a fight is insane! Only Lawler could handle that many punches. Covington is a beast!
I'm really impressed with how much straighter Colby's punches were. His timing was amazing as well. Nothing amazing in terms of technique but you can tell he has spent the last year really learning how to the time shots to off set his opponent right before they throw. You can see really good strikers have that freeze effect on people. It looks like the opponent just doesn't want to throw but in reality every time they are about to set up and start to shift their weight they get popped with a jab or met with a check hook if they do throw. That plus his volume was really impressive.
Robbie is a good man respect
Robbie is a fucking killer win or lose he’s a professional
Still a champ to me
Robbie is a great guy. I wish we had more people like him in this world.
The world would be so much better!!!!!!!!!
Looks like his tan has been punched off
I felt like the fight was set. Robbie had a heart of a dead fox in this fight. Also I felt Colby had the chance to finish him few times with rear naked choked, but he didnt that on purpose in my oppinion.. that was kind of a weird fight.
I feel like the media was trying to bait him into saying something negative about Colby and Robbie caught on to it and didn't appreciate it
he talks like nothing happened but his performance was actually strange if we consider what this guy can do. Maybe He didn't feel well
RETIRE IF YOU ARENT GONNA FIGHT BACK PUSSY
he wasn't active enough, in a fight when you duck and dodge and weave you need to counter as well. Colby doesn't have the best power out there, sending this much volume, oppenings were there. Maybe Lawler loss the leg game and we couldn't see it on the camera. Maybe his wasn't feeling so good. Hope to see him comeback with new found energy
Robbie bet his life savings on himself to lose before retiring and he got paid more then what the ufc offered him. Robbie knows you couldn't retire with these UFC payouts
He's on his way out. Time to step away from the game. He's quite not the same fighter anymore.
Robbie Lawler is 100% pure class.
I put 5k on this loser
He’s my favorite fighter and I also love that he’s classy. But for FUCKS SAKE. Tired of this whole “you know it is what it is I’ve gotta get better and he did things better” fucking repetitive nonsense Lawler always says. Provide an explanation as to why you’d be packing on muscle to fight 2 wrestlers that would out cardio you. Provide explanations as to why you barely put together combos or counters off clear slips?
Tired of this. Lawler lost the hunger. RIP Ruthless, 2014-2016
translation : imma go enjoy the check i got from dan lambert for what i didnt do in the cage
Colby retired him
robbie didn't show up at all for this fight. he showed flashes of his usual stle but just didnt have his normal offense…….colby sucks
Like to see Khabib go up and fight Covington! Who you got in that matchup?
Greatly respect and admire Robbie Lawler… Complete BadA**!
Turn up the speed to 1,25 for the most enjoyable experience
Face rearranged, check.
this punk was sold,,,for how much?????
Colby does that to everyone- he's got a good chin, great wrestling and arguably the best cardio in mma-if he had power it probably would have been more merciful for robbie-poor robbie was thoroughly out-cardioed and also out- wrestled and out-struck-it was a prolonged 5-round beatdown-it was almost inhumane-the last time i saw a fight that one-sided and prolonged larry holmes was turning randall tex cobb's face to jello
What a great guy classy as anyone! A great fighter made no excuses he just got beat!
Why his face look like he got in a fight with a cat
People's champ always!
Looks like he got mauled….then again he did get mauled.
Colby is Colby, the best welterweight in the world.
Dude literally said in another video that he would knock Colby out….shame on you Robbie for letting your fans down.
This guy is top notch
What a stand up guy.
Dude looks like a train hit him…
I think he is taking something because for the asskren fight he looked shredded AF!! And for this fight he didn't look the part… Maybe he was on something…
This fight was fixed, he fought way too crap
Wish he pressed the "sleeper cell" button in his brain and went ape shit like he did vs Askren tho. Nonetheless, true gent.
Robbie could beat Colby, he just used the wrong tactics
Fight was fixed
@Rom Jaikat couldve been, Robbie didn't throw much and didn't look like a fighter fighting for a belt.. he wasn't ever hurt in the fight either and never looked tired
Robbie is a good ambassador of mma
Hard not to love a fighter like this
Dude! CRAZY good impersonation of Robbie done by Dos Santos, sounds and moves almost just like Robbie!
How can he be so calm
I respect Robbie as he makes zero excuses..unlike saaaaay Nick Diaz lol..Tho Nick beat Robbie when he had hair via ko
Much Respect to you Robbie love watching you Fight whether you win or lose
Robbie is a total class act and never one to make excuses but the truth is he’s 37 yrs old, Covington, 31. He’s been competing in mma since 2001, has had 43 fights many them epic, extremely taxing wars. Covington has only had a 16 fight mma career. Big difference in age, activity and physical wear and tear. As much as I dislike what Covington represents, no denying his performance was stellar last night. Question is, could he have done it against Robbie in his prime?
Most humblest and smartest fighter in my opinion . I love his standup and stance more than colby but those takedowns were just the key..
Damn he looks like junior Dos Santos
No better dude n any sport!!
"It is what it is"
He needs to retire, this guy goes back to the drawing board every fight and does the same shit lmao
time to retire
Fuck you Lawler. ..rigged fight
Good God Robbie looks almost as bad as Ben did after their fight…
A stand up dude… and a great fighter! I thInk he got too defensive and should have sacrificed shots to the head to set up some heavy counters. Colby doesn’t get tired so he’s got to find the opening while Colby is striking.
Hate it for a stand up fighter to lose, especially a respectable one, but I really want to see Colby V Usman, so I'm glad Colby won. I also wanna see Colby V Woodley.
is it possible to like a fighter after a loss? I guess it is.
The only reason I follow ufc is because Robbie Lawler's in it
Love you Robbie! You're a true fucking warrior. You deserve to show Colby what's up in that rematch. You'll kill him next fight!
Damn…! Great fight from both fighters!! Now that was a war in a half right out the gate!!
the best !!! the legend!!!
He was bobbing and weaving.
If he was indian he'd be bobbing n vagening
Damn Lawler, was behind you on this one. You have class. Hall of Fame bound.
He is beat up and still doesn't play loaded with questions. Everyone wants to get the spin the way they think… selfishly.
Welp…. now hoping usman can beat Colby. I cringe at the thought of him being champ. He's such a turd
Got his ass kicked for 5 straight rounds. Time to reitre.
Fight seemed rigged
Robbie is on point with sharing with the public about how his fight life consumes a lot but it’s Imperative that he balances family! Gotta respect this guy
Something looked of with Robbie during the fight. I didn’t see him initiating bursts of power shots. It’s probably due to all the takedowns and smothering of Colby. That type of fighting can drain the opponents stamina and explosiveness. Always been a fan of lawler and yes he will be back. Congrats to Colby for the win.
Love straight talking robbie
What I love about Robbie is he's mentally extremely tough he always stays even kill never gets to hi or to low win or lose is attitude stays the same.
Loss is a loss he still made good moneu im sure
Robbie IS SUCH a humble dude.
Robbie needs to stop training with Paddy O Hoolihan. He did too much Dodging, dipping, ducking, diving and dodging lol
Most strikes ever but zero knock downs pillow fists
Class guy. Have to say though I would love for him to retire here. He had an amazing achieved the highest pinnacle of the sport. Bow that his run back to title has been thwarted, and being 37 it feels like a smart time to hang it up and go out with his head held high and no more brain trauma.
Nicest guy ever respectful but it kind of looks like you took a dive in that fight got two presidents Sons back it up f**** this Joker Colby. You did what you had to do but you could answer them still think you're awesome. But you got cash for that
Very hyped to see what you upload next. Awesome job on this vid.
these questions are such shit from this media
I’ve never really liked you much Robbie but I have to say something positive so I’ll say you take a ass whipping with class. I remember a fight you lost four and a half rounds fighting Johny Hendricks and came on bottom of fifth round and won because you were the defending champion. Hendricks kicked your ass and got ripped off!
I really wish robby just came out swinging for the hills it could have all been over in round 1. but for me he was trying to be too precise. Hats off to Covington tho his wrestling’s savage.
I don’t know what it was but it kind of looked like Robbie threw the fight.
Colby fucked him up. Look at his face.
Usman and Colby have a very similar style. Not sure who wins. They are both practically the same. I'll give it to Usman since he is more rangy and bigger
How he started against Askren and compare that to this. Didn't look like himself at all
Such a contrast to the douch bag colby. Class act as always.
Ruthless is the man. I liked them both so it was hard for me to root for one but I kinda edged more for Colby because it would make the WW scene more interesting. Much respect to Robbie
man looks like Robbie was pulled behind a truck for a mile. Absolute legend tho!
More like he got attacked by an angry kitten. Punches from a grown man especially at that volume should have left him looking worse. Thank god colby hits like a geriatric grandma wearing mittens
Maybe Robbie needs to retire there's no need to prove anymore
Looks like a bunch or scratches from Colby, fights like a girl. Go Robbie!
STRIKEFORCE he was the shit. but his lost made him look like a punching bag. SHAME
"did he hurt you at all during the fight?"
Robbies mouth said no but his face tells a whole other story.
Last time I heard that it came from somebody who couldn’t see out of either one of his eyes by the end of his fight. Robbies face will be back to normal in about a week because it’s mostly bruises, a fat lip and minor facial swelling. He’ll be fine. As bad as he got beat, he looks better then he did after the Rory fight that’s for sure
@This Guys Toupee haha you're 1000% right. He still looked like junior dos Santos after the fight.
Lawler was not rocked or wobbled once during the whole fight. 200 pillow fists hitting you is still gonna mark you up a little. Never was in danger from colbys stand up tho
The best part of this interview 1:26
Colby woop his ass
Robbie threw that fight for sure, the man got paid to lose
Its mind blowing how obvious it is and no ones talking about it
I didn't see the fight, but shit! He got busted up.
..the art of not really saying anything..ducking and rolling just like in a fight…
Theres no point in interviewing this guy, he has the most boring answers ever
Unbelievable that he doesn't comment on his lack of offense and how slow and weak his punches were.
It was completely insane to see him just walk forward and weave, without throwing anything.
And when he did throw we saw a lot of sluggish jabs and half-aborted hooks.
Was something wrong with him?? Never seen him fight like that before.
"It is what it is", this is the Max Holloway line. Both true fighters and respectful in both win and defeat.
Robbie should think about retiring. Don't be a BJ Penn. I noticed in his last few fights since Rory, he just bob and weave without throwing his usual volume. He has lost his power and speed.
DId you even listen to the man? You don't know anything about this world. That's why you have no avatar.
retire Robbie its over
Damn….who knew Colbys striking was that good?
Seems like Lawler let Colby win, just my opinion.
Notice none of these people who say this have American names.
Is it just possible that Robbie isn't washed up at all.. and Colby is just that good? Look past you political and personal feelings, Fucking Nerds.
Robbie you didn't throw any hands? Someone said fixed fight. I think its possible.
Nothing but class – old school mma respect – not a part of the new dana wwe bullshit
Embarassing night for robbie i must say
Robbie Lawler, Champion going in the UFC Ring a true champion going out the UFC Ring.
He gave out so many hints as to why he threw the fight , it’s all “part of the game”
Damn he looked like Rocky Dennis.
“Ruthless?” More like “Listless” What the hell was that? It’s like he didn’t even try? That was the strangest fight I’ve ever seen
Junior dos santos did well in this fight, he will be back!
This fight was staged worst than a Wwe match!
He may not look like the fight after Macdonald 2, but he was beaten, beaten convincingly too.
People are idiots saying Colby's striking is soft and sucks look at Robbie's face I don't think I ever see his face look that bad
Hey Ruthless …. respect for your fighting spirit! … However, if you learned anything from this fight it is to not go back to any drawing board, and that there is nothing left for you to finish. … The only thing left for you to do is to go home, rest, and come back with a microphone to tell us about what other fighters got to plan their fights to prevail! … Thanks for the memories Ruthless!
Wrestling takes to much stamina from both fighters. The pace slows down so much, its pretty not entertaining.
It just felt to me like he really didn't try to fight. Never seen him fight like that
BJ Penn is that you?
Robbie looked gassed in the 1st round. Great guy but he landed nothing
Colby, just because you yell MAGA doesn’t mean we all support you if your saying dumb shit. Matt Huges is a greater champion and person then you’ll ever be. When your family has a car accident think of Matt you scumbag.
Your Awesome Robbie, always be one of the greatest champions of all time…
It just seems like Colby had the right plan " let's mix it up at a high pace bc if Robby gets comfortable he's going to bring hell "
wtf happened robbie,you stopped swinging half way through the fight
Retire Robby cmon dont be a BJ Penn
Love you Robbie, your a goat to me !!!
Great fight you looked good!!!
Robbie is awesome but doesnt show up to some of his fights. This was one. Unless there was more money in losing and this was a setup for Usman. I hope the former as Robbie seems like an honest guy.
Why does he have scratches all over his face xD
Man he just needed a bit of determination in that fight to go for the kill. I wanna see Robbie light a high class fighter's face up again
Lawler probably weighted 195lbs during that fight.
It looks like Robbie let win to Colby. He didn't fight at all only been covered. …
We love you Robbie, you’re a true champ ❤️
Much respect to Robbie never makes excuses takes his losses on the chin
Took the L like a man. Keep at it.
I guess this is what fighting someone with “pillow fists” looks like
I can't stand cocky fighters with large personas. A calm, collected and humble Lawler is the type of fighter I always root for.
Those 500 strikes showing on robbies face lol
Damn Colby beat him so bad he turned into Dan Henderson
Isnt he like 0-4 in his last 4 fights..sad.
Yeah good attitude, very humble. But it feels like he has lost his killer instinct. Time to put the gloves on the mat?
Colby Covington was fighting for a decision win only, Real fighters want to finish fighters. Robbie suffered because of this style of fighting. The volume of punches and takedowns were not designed to finish the fight, more to score points and win a decision at the end. This method of fighting is a coward way of winning a fight, and in respect to Colby he had a lot to loose in this fight, so I can understand why he picked the safe route to victory.
What drawing board is he talkin about?! Lol
Colby is no joke. Usman is fucked. Can't wait to see that fight .hope he brings his terrorist manager so I can watch him cry some nerd tears. Respect to Robbie as well . can't say a bad thing at all about him .legend
robbie threw this fight man , its sad to say but i reckon he did $$
Whatever happened to the lawler that got mad and wanted to knoc nick Diaz out lol nowadays he’s just fighting for the money and not to win
He forgot 2 throw punches.
I know Robbie took this loss on the chin like a warrior, but you could honestly see how this one fucked him up.
Could have guillotined that bum.
Being taken down 12 x is good takedown defense¿
Changing of the guard man Robbie and Edgar on their way out Max and coby rising up
True professional win or loss
Much respect for this man. He’s a warrior of the sport
Can’t stand Colby’s cringe talking but you have to respect how he dismantled Robbie so bad he had him looking like a novice
Robbie looks broke up. Allot of respect for him to stay in there for the full five rounds..
We still love you more Lawler! Covington is a tool
Go retire! Washed up
His Takedown D was laughable. 10 takedowns lol
He doesn't look like a man who has just taken 500 punches
Classy human being, gentleman!!!
And then there is Rousey.
Respekt for him!!! True Warrior and gentlemen
Colby beat him so hard he looks like John C. Reilly
True champion.. respect.
Respect for Robbie Lawler !
Robbie Lawler looks really good for someone who receives 500 punches
Bullshitter, gets paid to throw fights now. wtf was that fight?? Happy to lose, punch me 4 $$$$
Robbie “it is what it is “ lawler.
I think Robbie is done.
Lawler is done for the sport… Is 37 and lost 4 of is last 5 fights
better for Lawler to retire!! loss after loss..
What a dude…
A loss is a learning process …class act and a realistic person ..don't suit him not to have that belt
Dude is just straight class. These men are rarer and rarer in our world that’s now made of likes, retweets, and instagram filters. Behold honor, folks. It’ll soon be no more.
Washed up… was great but needs to retire. No fire left
This is from a long time robbie lawler fan. The sport have evolved and robbie haven't. Age will get you at some point. Robbie is done. With all due respect.
Robbie lawler looks like a super mutant from fallout… Still love him though.
Robbie Lawler is the true personification of the saying: "I don't know, I just work here."
Robbie u have nothing left to prove….just retire…it was frustrating seeing u in there not able to do shit man..i mean i cant even say u landed one meaningful punch entire fight…..and ur now talking like u did ur best….its about time man…plz
Lotta scratches on his face ain’t there?
It was as if they were not even fighting… like it was fixed…no hard strikes. A sparring session.
He looked super bummed but stays composed with redundant questions.
What a real gentleman!
I love his attitude.
Something was wrong with him for sure..did colby pay him?
age thing has caught up with him
Fucker bitch I wanted Robbie to win. Great attitude all fighters should be this way. I fux with the ruthless one he will definitely be back better than ever wouldn't be surprised if he becomes champ again wouldn't put it past him
Legend! What a humble man! He will be back!!
It's hard to dislike Robbie Lawler….he's so even tempered.
His face is pretty bruised up …man,these dudes are truly gladiators.
I think its time for lawler to retires..
I like Robbie…but was his gameplan tonight…….not to strike?!??
That’s how you talk after you took money to lose. Notice everything he said relates to business practices.
Connor mentioned over training in defense against the takedowns
screw all that respect talk dude was embarrassing out there at least empty the gas tank in the final minutes. his a bit overrated look at his record
Damn I wanted Lawler to win this fight…. Arrrgh!!!!
He looked like Vitor Belfort in the thumbnail lol
Honorable and all but u need to hang it up bro…..come on dude….we love u but…enough is enough
Poor little Robbie. Got his lunch money taken.
Colby "Who Cares" Covingturd – boring fighter, annoying persona.
Time to retire my friend
why does Robbie almost always look 50% less tan after his fights LOL Colby beat the tan off Lawler
Hes a great man and a hell of a fighter, hes a total legend
Shit Man lawler needs to retire hes too old
Can't believe Colby beat him, and left his face like this. Damn, guess Colby ain't a joke like I thought.
Love Robbie but hope he hangs it up soon: his greatest asset was his viciousness and he's lost that with age, and he seems like the POSTER-BOY for a fighter who wont let it go even when its passed him by. Hope I'm wrong.
Classy fighter enjoy watching you fight.
Damn u can't bait this guy. He such a nice person lol
This fight was fixed. Watch how he just kept hand checking and not throwing punches especially the 3rd round.
Robbie lawler good warriors
Damn wish robbie would've beat his ass. Covington is talking so much shit. And yes robbie does take a loss very well
Robbie is a good dude no doubt.
I respect Robbie so much… and I’m a huge fan but my boy needs to retire…
Robbie by far has the best sportsmanship in the fight game. Much respect to him! I just wish so many fans wouldn't make excuses for him. I keep seeing people write about how he "got paid to lose this fight". C'mon, guys.. Robbie is a stand up guy, and I truly believe he would never go to those lengths for a paycheck. Sometimes the other guy is just the better fighter, and that's what happened today. Love, or hate Colby, the guy came out and did a fantastic job.
robbie is all class
Amazing attitude, focus and know show of retiring. What a class warrior. Respect
Lawler got paid BY the UFC to take an L to promote covington.
Robbie seems like he didnt do much but Colbys unanswered output was savage
Robbie is down to earth but that doesn’t help you win fights. One of the worst performances I’ve seen from Robbie
Peyton Lee he's finished… his fight with Rory took its toll
The 'Brash' kid it seems people forget Lawler put on another Spectacular performance after that with the Condit fight the Rory fight was just another fight for Lawler it done nothing to him Rory took the heat but Lawler went on and beat condit in another great fight where he looked better in the condit fight than the Rory fight so no the Rory fight took nothing from him
Hahahahaha u got beat down
You should go to
Another organisation few years in come back ufc
Who else cant get over the fact 500 + strikes were thrown with no knockout. That shit is unbeleivable
Very subliminal. Passively insults the media feeding off the inappropriate B.S. and the UFC liking to promote it. Robbie is great. I'm pretty sure something was up with his hands. Had to be injured.
Looked like Lawler took a dive, trumps probably paid him off
Robe Lawler STUPID!
Shut that hell up.. you got your ass handed to you. Period.
Forget the fight. He KOed the media at 01:30…
I think of rob loses the next fight papa dana might say "i think robbie should retire" meaning he gonna get cut but her makes great fight so it would be a loss to mma
Fulll fight video https://youtu.be/a3YZ6uqoivo
Love this dude, just hope he stays healthy
It looks like robbie got attacked by a women.
Thats the problem with loving mma since there career is short we get to see former champs we love get thrown to young wolf thank you robbie its been an hommor watching you fight now go see youre kid grow up goes by to fast
Robbie "The Diver" Lawler ?
Doesn't matter the outcome in this one, Colby is still a massive cunt, and Lawlor is still a class act – of course we'll get the bandwagon dickriders "OMG Colby is teh bestest" type retards, but he is still a massive cuntbag.
I feel so bad for this dude
Want to teach your kids how to take a loss? Here you go.
Look like you fought a house cat
Robbie “I’m just worried about myself as usual” Lawler
What a great man humble in defeat and still does not crap wow
This guy did the rope a dope for 5 rounds and didn't counter punch at all, to one dimensional in a sport that evolves every year. If Robby doesnt add another weapon to his game his career will end bad, thats why Nick diaz doesnt want to fight he knows the game has turned to wresltling heavy and he knows he doesnt wanna put that work in , Robbie might need to do the same and fall back.
Even in a loss Robbie is a terrifying human being
For a bad MOFO he’s a man with class.
Robbie is a class act.
Yup, the media eats it up..
This guy is a true example of what an MMA fighter should be. Takes the loss like a true champion. Much respect. Defiantly one of the greatest of all time
Much respect. This is the lowest point of any sport. He handles it so well.
Robbie is a shadow of the fighter he was as Champion. Clearly those fights took a lot out of him! Not his soul but a lot of other things! He is now the Gatekeeper of the weight division.
Robbie frustrated me so much.He spent 5 rounds refusing to throw a fucking punch. I feel he didnt want to win
Time to hang 'em up.
Hate to see Lawler take that much punishment still. The guy has been in some absolute wars and some of the greatest fights in UFC history.
Covington looked great, can't wait for that title fight. Both guys have a similar style.
he one or 2 fights from Retiring
Guys like this is why the sport is so beautifull .
Usman will shit on Colby I can’t wait
Looks like a cat got in a fight with his face lmao
Robbie is the man. Hands down the strongest mentality in the UFC. Never makes excuses and always gives it his all.
Colby was so scared of Lawler's power, those bitch jabs Colby threw were lame.
robbie classy after a tough loss hopefully you bounce back!
THE ABSOLUTE %100 COOLEST TOUGHEST REALEST FIGHTER EVER STAND UP DUDE REAL DEAL WHAT A STUD WHAT A MF ATTITUDE
he did not throw a single hard left
two losses against not-so-great fighters, i see him fading away now. never gonna get to the top again that's for sure.
Fuck off keyboard warrior
He is super disappointed in himself! I didn't watch the fight, heard what happened and seems he didn't show up is what I gathered.
Robbie is a good dude
Robbie is a washed up turd.
The most humble guy in ufc. Lol he honestly inspires me to be a better person.
did he ever hurt you? "nah", -face is pummeled.
ROBBIE LAWLER IS THE GOAT V
Fucken real man!
Robbie seems like the nicest guy on the planet. Why can’t we all be like this. Lol
Robbie Barn None is A "WARRIOR" you all know tjat you all know the Best fight was when he fought RoRY MCDonaLD that was a FIGHT that shit was a Dope Performance this fight you all saw the Hugger covington was just hugging he needs to fight MasvidaL i want tok see that .
future hall of famer.
As much as i dislike colby, he dominated today…nice fight ass wipe! Much respect to Lawler true legend!
Man even when he looses Robbie is a champ! Best additute in mma, Robbie is a class act! Such a beast.
Big respect for Robbie, still. You can tell he feels like shit about losing. I feel bad for the guy.
Possibly the most boring fight in history
The most one sided welterweight clinic since Macdonald v Woodley. Damn Robbie I'll corner you. All I have to say is thow your left and be first. You either could have won tonight, or at least not got hit like 450 times.
Why do we celebrate disrespect? Oh am I being too politically correct? What Colby said about Matt Hughes was extremely disrespectful and that’s why ppl hate him. Not bc of trump.
Robbies crying inside he knows hes done. Deep inside hes trying so hard but hes done
Instead of ruthless Robbie we got head movement Robbie
"ROBBIE!!!! HEAD MOVEMENT!!! JAB!!! GOOD JAB!! JAB !!! JAB!! CLINCH!!!! HEAD MOVEMENT!!!!! NOOOO!!! NOOOOO!!!!"
Colby’s comment about Matt made me hate him. I used to like him but that’s a line you just don’t cross.
Ruthless getting beat up like a red headed step child without the hair
Damn looks like Colby sent him down the coal mine.
Bro Colby Covington is absolutely classless for that line about hughes,absolutely disgusting, his day is coming
So much class. Only thing we can all do is get better. Looking forward to your next fight champ.
Newark NJ Lol
New York Nj
Robbie Kurt angle slams Ben askren and everybody said it was a fluke he lost. Colby beats him like an orphan and everyone suddenly says he’s washed up… ok………
aj fr fr people jus don’t know what they want lmao
This was a Robbie Lawler ive never seen tonight. Very hesitant and stayed near the cage most of the fight. He should have been more explosive and kept the fight in the middle of the octagon. Colby a beast though! He wore his ass down big time in those first 2 rounds.
I think he was just thrown off by the wrestling threat. Robbie has always had trouble with good wrestlers. It´s very intimidating to try and commit with strikes against a wrestler you know, those motherfuckers shoot in so quick. You throw out that left hand and suddenly you´re looking up at the lights getting smashed for the rest of the round. That shit is seriously stressful
Colby won Lawler still champing
Robbie just put colby over
fuck Robbie, he lost a fan, he didn't show up on fight night, I don't know who did
Im sad asl
Makes you wonder if not training at American top team anymore changed Lawlers game. They say your fellow fighters who you train with push you more then anyone.
Guy has scratch marks on his right cheek and forehead
Har har robert
Always a class act.
Robbie has had a great career as the best striker in the business – but it's over – finito.
Spending the money they paid you lol fake fights …fake jobs
Robbie didn't want to win
I love Robbie and I think he’s a great fighter but I’m starting to question if he’s lost that killer edge…
Robbie is a propper fighter… best attitude!!! nothing shakes him. Someone to emulate!!!
Real Man! Smooth talk
Filho da puta mole vai te fuder
You just got enougher fan this guy is very sincere and truth fool he dont make no excuses he will be back
The war with Rory had to take something permanent out of him, rda to.
Askren squeezed every bit of Lawler's heart out.
@Paul Denino gtfuck out here with that shit, Askren did nothing but got his chin checked and prepared for Masvidal on a silver platter.
Legend has it that Lawler was still ducking and bobbing after the interview.
Robbie now has two loses In a row
Robbie is too passive…! Is always the same when loses! I think his use to losing now and that's the new norm for this guy! He will lose again mark my words!!!!
Colby really beat the brakes off Ruthless every Round. Relentless
Snap, ain't this a bunch of shit. What ever, Robbie always saying the same old shit win or lose… Colby is a puto puto
Yeah he looks like he got his ass beat
A Stand up a guy for sure. But Damn kind of miss the days when Robbie was actually "Viscous" Robbie Lawler. Not to take anything away from Covington, but its kind of been the story of his career. Tale of two halves. Felt like viewing two DIFFERENT fighters from fights like this to back when he went on that MENACING tear from around 2012-2016 (granted he's old now)
This guy has the charisma of a dirty sock. He is such a monotone robot.
How much was he paid to throw the fight?
this dude is still a bad ass and so respectable. wow
Robbie relieve yourself of that weight cut , go back up to 185 pounds . You've earned it !
