Everyone and their mother is volunteering to fight Robbie Lawler at UFC on ESPN 3

Recommended Posts

If you’re a UFC welterweight without a fight, the thing to do right now is go on social media and let it be known that you want a piece of Robbie Lawler.

Things took a turn for Lawler on Friday after it was revealed that Tyron Woodley has an injured hand forcing him to withdraw from their scheduled headlining rematch on June 29 at UFC on ESPN 3.

It was only a matter of minutes before Darren Till took to Twitter to say he’d step in for Woodley, with the only caveat being that he’d want to fight Lawler at a catchweight of 175 pounds.

Till was only the beginning, though. After that, everyone and their mother went on Twitter to volunteer their services to take on former champion Lawler.

Check these out:

Bruv, I’ll give you the bail money to come fight me in Uruguay (August 10) after I whoop @Ruthless_RL . You miss weight, back to back losses, knocked out in front of your own people and now you’re picking a new weight class? Spoiled brat.

If you ask me, I think MMA Junkie’s Dave Doyle (Happy Birthday, by the way) has the answer for the Lawler sweepstakes (via Twitter):

I vote one-night tournament and the winner fight Lawler at the end.
