"It's a sport, yes," Tom Lawlor said of mixed martial arts, "but sports are meant to be entertaining in one form or another. At an NBA basketball game, they announce the players and when they're running through the team, they're jumping around pumped up and they have their own entrance music and what not.

"A lot of people get lost in the aspect of, 'Aw, man, I'm a fighter. I'm really tough. I'm not going to show any emotion or have a sense of humor.' That's just not my style. I'd rather have a good time and go out there and lose than hate my life and go out there and win."

He walked to the cage for his Ultimate Fight Night bout against Aaron Simpson to the strains of Rick Derringer's "I am a Real American," which became Hogan's anthem when he arrived in the WWF in the mid-1980s.

He walked to the cage at UFC 139 wearing 1980s workout gear as Olivia Newton John's "Let's Get Physical" played in the arena.

And now he vows to have a special entrance set for Tuesday's match against MacDonald, though he concedes most folks may not totally get it.

"This is probably going to be the most obscure entrance yet," said Lawlor, who would give no clues. "I pretty much expect no laughter except from the really, really hardcore fans. If you have been watching since 2000, OK, you might get it, but that's going to be about it, though I personally think it's great."

Lawlor fights Jason MacDonald on Tuesday at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va., on UFC on Fuel 3.

 If he draws on abs like Saku that'd be epic.

Pride Rules - id like to see him do something entertaining such as win a fight

dont care too much about a 10second entrance at weigh ins where at best, ppl might fake laugh just to humor him.

An entertaining entrance and a victory are not mutually exclusive. Stop pretending that coming up with an memorable entrance takes meaningful time away from training.

Thank you.

People talk like I don't go the gym the , and instead I focus all of my time on entrances. Does anyone on here, who doesn't fight, sit around and think about their job all day? No.

If you lose which you probably won't because macdonald is a shot fighter. You kinda look foolish, like you spent more time on the entrance than preparing for the fight.
good luck to you man!
Fuck you.

Sincerely,

Me. Phone Post
