Petruzelli: Lawlor owes me an extravagant walk out

by Ben Fowlkes | source:

"He definitely owes me one," Petruzelli told MMA Fighting. "Unfortunately, I have to be serious with my walk-ins. I can't flip that switch like he can where he can go from being goofy and funny, which we both are normally, to serious in the cage. Weigh-ins is where I'll show my character and do something funny."

"For the walk-in it's going to be pretty serious. It's going to be something no one's ever seen before and it's going to be extravagant, but it's going to be a serious entrance."

"He'll have to dress up. It will be more of a serious dress-up, but he'll have to do it. Basically the goal is that if anyone ends up looking like an idiot during the entrance, it's going to be him."

"That's the problem with some people. They just don't have a sense of humor. We just think that stuff is kind of funny. Especially in a sport like MMA, there's some shock value in it, and we're both just kind of goofy. It's all for fun. It doesn't bother us when some people don't like it. Some people don't have much of a sense of humor. That sucks for them."

I think there's plenty of reason to believe that on Tom's part. Dude gets blown up before he even steps foot in the cage...

 I don't think there's any reason to believe that these shenanigans get in the way of training or planning. You can't do that 24/7, there's a little time for sillyness.

I like Seth and Tom. I think that they are funny guys and good natured. Fairly decent fighters.When I hear this, I have to wonder if their careers wouldn't be better served by game planning or training more instead of planning goofy entrances.Chango
