With an amazing performance and win over Jake Ellenberger, Robbie Lawler may have secured himself another shot at Johny Hendricks for the UFC title:
"How could you deny him the fight," said White. "The fight with Hendricks was awesome. With his performance before the Hendricks fight, no doubt he's the No. 1 guy (contender) in the world."
Lawler lost a straight 48-47 decision to Hendricks in their March 15 fight in Dallas to fill the welterweight title vacancy left when champion George St-Pierre took a leave from the sport.
In most people's eyes, the first fight between the two, among the best fights so far this year, was even going into the final round.
Hendricks suffered a torn biceps prior to the fight, and had surgery afterwards, and is targeting somewhere between September and November for a return.
"I did a good job, I got a stoppage and I put everyone on notice, and I know I'm in the conversation," said Lawler.
