ROBBIE LAWLER:IT WASN’T THE PLACE FOR ME

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

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…)

I DONT KNOW IF I SHOULD CONTINUE – Carlos Condit

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Carlos Condit contemplated on making it the end of his career, having lost to Robbie Lawler at the beginning of the year.


Now it appears that he may be even closer to hanging up his four-ounce gloves for good.

One bout removed him from very nearly claiming welterweight gold, Condit returned to the Octagon at UFC on Fox 21 in Vancouver with a chance to jump right back into the welterweight title picture.

Nevertheless, the evening did not go as planned, as “The Natural Born Killer” was overwhelmed by the grappling of Demian Maia and tapped to a rear-naked choke 1:52 into the first round of their main event clash.

Condit managed to land only one significant strike before succumbing to Maia. It was a far cry from his previous outing against Lawler, a bout many thought he won and is one of the frontrunners for “Fight of the Year” for 2016. (more…)
