Robbie Lawler may have just met his match.

Although the UFC welterweight champion is set to defend his title against Tyron Woodley this Saturday at UFC 201 in Atlanta, Georgia, “Ruthless” went head to head with CNN’s Coy Wire, who eerily resembles the UFC champ to do some media work.

Check out the video clips of Lawler and Wire and things get even weirder when the two do a face swap!
