Lawler focused on MacDonald, not title fight


Robbie Lawler only has Rory MacDonald on his mind, despite a win meaning a potential move towards number one contendership:

But if things go his way Saturday against Rory MacDonald (15-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at UFC 167 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena (pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET), he might not have a choice about where that spotlight is shined. He could insert himself right into the UFC’s welterweight title picture, not that Lawler (21-9, 6-3) is thinking about that.

“I really haven’t looked that far ahead,” Lawler, 31, tells USA TODAY Sports. “Rory’s a really tough opponent and I have my hands full, so I need to focus on him and not worry so much about what happens afterward.”

That’s the type of response that has come to be expected from Lawler, who returned to the UFC in February after fighting away from the promotion for more than eight years.

He will lose, but I really hope he wins. I would be so happy. Happier than when he KO'd Koscheck

Tri-star doesn't lose to big punchers... Hendricks and Robbie will learn that tomorrow. They're just..... Better.
