Robbie Lawler, former UFC welterweight champion has recently opened up as to why he moved from his longtime gym at the American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida.


Lawler, who spoke to Brett Okamoto – Mixed Martial Arts reporter on the 5ive Rounds Podcast noted that he left because the time had come for him to leave.

“It was time for me to go. It wasn’t the place for me.

“I have a lot of friends and buddies still training there but the place wasn’t for me anymore and that’s what I have to say about that,” Lawler posited.

In mixed martial arts, the American Top Team has remained one of the most prolific gyms. However, it was unable to produce a champion until Lawler.

Lawler defeated Johny Hendricks, the then champion to win the UFC title via split decision at UFC 181 in December 2014, a fight which was a rematch from their initial outing in May 2014. Hendricks emerged winner via unanimous decision in the first bout. (more…)
