Lawler: Ellenberger Striking Higher Level Than Hendricks

“[Ellenberger] is a hell of a fighter. He is well rounded and knocks people out. He always comes in shape and is one of the best fighters in the UFC. I would say his striking is higher level [than Johny’s]. He is sharp with his hands. He moves his feet really well. I don’t really worry about ‘deserve.’ I’m going to worry about earning. That means earning a [title] shot. Let everyone know that I’m one of the best in the world if not the best in the world. I need to push forward and become a better fighter. I’m preparing to be the best Robbie Lawler on May 24th.”

In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, Robbie Lawler discussed his upcoming scrap against Jake Ellenberger.

The two will square off this weekend on the UFC 173 main card.
