Its not easy to get an interview with Robbie Lawler, matter of fact its damn near impossible. I’m pretty sure, just for helping to arrange this interview, we might owe Matt Pena all you can eat sushi, an entire truckload of Hennessey and he will always get to win when we play skeeball on thursdays. Robbie doesn’t really like doing interviews, he would rather show you everything he wants to say by getting in the cage and throwing bombs. Robbie Lawler is a man of few words but what he says he means, he isn’t going to waste time bs-ing with you. He reminds me of an outlaw cowboy that walks into the saloon and doesn’t say a word-his reputation preceeds him. The patrons step to the side to let him walk by and his drink is waiting for him when he sits down. He doesn’t have to say anything, you already know not to mess with him when he walks in the room.
