An old headline from 2017

"Colby Covington on Robbie Lawler: "I used to give him so many beatings he left [ATT] because of what I was doing to him"

"As a guy who used to know Robbie, I hope he hangs it up. I hope the people close to him tell him to retire. He's not on any good, world class level anymore. He looked bad, and RDA looked like a bum," said Covington.

"We got Woodley and Lawler fighting for the senior citizen championship," Covington told Ariel Helwani. "Those guys should be retired by now, they're embarrassing."

"I could see Lawler turning it back one more time, I think he might have one more left hand"

The best part about the fight posted above me is when Vitale's mom comes in the ring after and attacks Robby.

In the post-fight interview Vitale spends about ten minutes complaining that he doesn't have enough time to train.

Otlwgt - Lawler vs Trigg

Who has that gif?

If you look closely you can see Trigg's mouthpiece fly away like a UFO

Fighters far better than Colby have been unable to give Lawler a beating. Could Covington have taken him down and laid on him in training? Possibly. 

Could he give Robbie a beating? No way i could ever believe  that.

So one of my favorite fighters vs a guy i want to see get beat up badly? Good match making choice i guess, but i'll be sad if Robbie lose the fight.

The beauty of MMA is sometimes you have to answer for your words. Couldn’t think of a worse match up for Colby. The ride was fun while it lasted.

To be fair, i think Usman, GSP or Woodley would be tougher matchups for him. But you can never count out Lawler ;)

Dan Lambert confirmed that Colby didnt have much of a choice but to accept Lawler fight. Colby is trying to spin it that he stepped up to save the day, but according to his manager, the UFC pretty much gave him little options.

I dont hate him at all. But I’d like to see him fight once in a while.

I like Colby just fine,  but I will NEVER watch a Ruthless Bob fight and not hope he knocks the hell out of somebody.

Probably the meanest shit I've ever seen in a ring. Robbie is still staring down his lifeless body as the ref tries to wrestle him away.

Hoping Robbie ends up "hangin' on the rim" with Colby.

So..... is Colby afraid that he'll catch Malaria, Ebola or AIDS or whatever from Kamaru? This fight doesn't make much sense. I hate to say it, but Colby is going to wear Robbie out and absolutely dominate him with hugging, cardio and babypunches.

Nah. He stayed inactive too long and lost his spot.

Colby does not belong in the big show. It's as simple as that. That he's considered a competitor says volumes about the depth of that division.

Robbie's mileage is catching up with him, but I doubt seriously he ever caught a beating from Colby.

Colby will be unbearable if he beats Robbie. Really hope Lawler smashes him.

One of the scarier things I’ve seen recently and don’t see mentioned, is when Lawler has Askren rocked and wobbling on the feet, he went into that search and destroy with the head low , hands high but elbows out, and kinda shoulder rolling as he walked in to trade. I don’t know what it’s called, but I’d have shit myself extra bad if I saw that comin at me.
