5 Oz. of Pain on CBSSports.com: EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler discusses future

I wanted to give everyone a quick update that my latest column for CBSSports.com is now available.

I was recently able to speak with EliteXC middleweight champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler coming off the heels of his successful defense against Scott Smith on CBS two weeks ago.

Lawler is know for being all-business when interacting with the media, and my interview with him wasn’t much different. However, he did indicate he could be returning sooner than some are expecting and he did speak out against a host of fighters that have recently called him out.

Lawler also discussed what it was like being let go by the UFC several years back and talks about what his current relationship is with UFC President Dana White.

    He’s not going to last much longer as middleweight champ. I think Shamrock could be next on a CBS card. They need to get Shamrock on one of those shows. Lawler has been on there twice and who else better to match him up with then Shamrock. He would sell the shit out of that fight and make it huge. Then whip Lawlers ass and take his belt. They could potentially put on better Middleweight fights then the UFC can at this point (Cung Le, Rua Villasenor, Lawler Shamrock). And would love to see it.

    Totally laughable. The only ranked fighter of the bunch is Lawler.

    I like this kid because he’s smart. When asked about UFC, which cut him, and Dana White, he didn’t run them down. That’s good business. Sure he didn’t like it, but what’s the point of talking trash in public? Someday he might want to fight in the UFC again, or the UFC might want him back. Mouthing off complicates that, because White and the UFC would look weak for negotiating with him after he criticized them. Why would White or UFC want to lose face over one fighter? New talent comes along every day, and they can afford to wait. On the other hand, he acted like a professional and a gentleman, and that makes people want to do business with him. Guys like Tito, and to some extent Couture, need to learn this.
