Lawlor: I'm going to set a new standard for weigh-ins

by Mike Chiapetta | source:

"This isn't a wrestling match," he said. "This is a fight, or I'll turn it into a fight. If it was a wrestling match, my money would be on him. But it's not a wrestling match, it's a fight ... If I was a betting man, I would bet on myself."

For Lawlor, his performance usually starts at the weigh-ins, where he's notorious for his appearances, usually coming out dressed as a character from MMA's past. Among his recent stage entries were Dan Severn, Harold Howard and the "Just Bleed" guy from UFC 1.

With 13 months to ponder his next time in front of the audience, Lawlor has something planned for UFC 139, and it's something big.

"Unless they stop me right before I go out there, it's going to be really good," he said. "It might top all the past things that I've done and that's saying a lot. I get a lot comments on the Dan Severn thing, I get a lot of comments from real hardcore fans on the 'Just Bleed' guy. But I really think this will take the cake. It's going to set a new standard for weigh-ins."

Lawlor's UFC antics are legendary including his weigh in's and walkout's ..... I expect nothing but entertainment from him. Looking forward to this new big thing you have planned Tom.
