29 years old Robbie Lawler, fighting now for nearly 11 years, has gone 2-4 his last six fights. In that run he won two by KO, lost two decisions, and lost twice to a choke, sunk by Jacare Souza and Jake Shields.

MMAJunkie caught up with Lawler, and, expecting to hear something about avoiding grapplers and wanting someone who will stand, bang, and go out, enquired about what kind of opponent he wanted next?

"I would rather fight someone with no arms and no legs," Lawler jokingly said. "That would probably be the best matchup for me.

"I would look amazing."

"I've been around for a while. I'm just trying to get better. I think that's what everybody is trying to do – get better and try to evolve your game."

"I am learning new things. I'm getting stronger, getting faster. I've been around the game for a long time now. It's almost just bringing out the things I've learned more than anything. The things I learned eight years ago, I just all of a sudden start to use and start to bring into my game."

"I'm just going to go out there and try and beat people up and get after 'em. Try to learn from your mistakes and try to get better."

"What motivates me? I like to win. That's my motivation. I don't really worry too much about other people."

Lawler definitely does not have an opponent with no legs (see below) in Chechen Adlan Amagov, who he fights Saturday night at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine in Las Vegas. Amagov has not lost in his last 10 fights, and is currently trained by Murat "Master K" Keshtov, at KDojo in Fairfield, NJ.

"I've watched a couple of fights," Lawler said. "He's real explosive, really good strikes, lots of really good kicks – pretty good fighter. Explosive."

As 'explosive' is an excellent description of Lawler as well, expect an explosive fight this Saturday on Showtime.

Read entire article...

Amagov in action vs. Maskhat Akhmetov (0-0) on December 19, 2009 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

Damnit you guys beat me to the Kyle Maynard jokes. I fought on the same card as his one and only mma fight in the great state of Alabama (the only state that would allow that shit). But it was cool, we could throw elbows as amateurs!

 The article says he lost to Jake Shields by rear naked choke, but I'm pretty sure it was actually a guillotine.
