Lawler: ‘If they scored on damage I would be champ’

“I was ready to fight, it’s as simple as that,” he says. “I told (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva I wanted to get back in as soon as possible. I didn’t take any damage against Hendricks, so why not?”

“I did the most damage in that fight, but I lost. He did a good job in winning enough rounds I guess. It’s not PRIDE. They don’t score damage in the UFC. If they did, I would be the champ today. Now I just have to work my way back, but I’m not thinking about Hendricks anymore. I’m thinking about Jake.”

In a recent interview with UFC.COM’s Mike Straka, Robbie Lawler discussed his last fight against Johny Hendricks and his upcoming one against Jake Ellenberger this weekend.
