Robbie Lawler just gave someone at Fightland the sort of interview you\u2019d expect from an experienced MMA fighter reflecting on his career. For instance, he talked about knowing that he wanted to be a mixed martial arts fighter in high school, how he went through those inevitable \u201crough times,\u201d and also what it felt like to be a young kid still \u201cout there searching\u201d while fighting the best fighters in the word. Sure, that\u2019s all very nice. But there must be more. \u201cI was enjoying fighting, but I wasn\u2019t . . . I didn\u2019t want to be a part of the light. I just wanted to compete and have fun.\u201d Didn\u2019t want to be part of the light, Mr. Lawler? Interesting. But let\u2019s imagine for a moment that a man could compete, have fun, and still enjoy a very particular kind of light, say, in the privacy of his own home. Would you be interested in that sort of arrangement, Robbie? \u201cI didn\u2019t really care if anyone knew what I was up to,\u201d Robbie continued, feeling that invisible Xbox 360 controller forming in his hand. \u201cI just wanted to enjoy myself and fight and compete and hide and play video games after.\u201d There it is. The only light Robbie Lawler was interested in during those formative fighting years was the glowing white background that filled his television screen just before those familiar letters became superimposed like video game magic. E. A. Sports. It\u2019s in the game. \u201cI played one game. Madden,\u201d he explained. \u201cI\u2019d really get into it. I mean I spent a lot of time playing. I would bring the Giants. If I had to play for a million dollars, I\u2019d bring in the Giants. Tell my wife, \u2018Don\u2019t come down. I\u2019m playing.\u2019\u201d The lights. The letters. The voice of a kind old coach over-explaining the most elementary concepts in the sport of football. If you've experienced it, you know why it was more exciting than a rising career in mixed martial arts. Yes, that seven-fight winning streak at the start of his promising career was alright. But Madden.
