Why Did Robbie Lawler Leave The UFC?

It been long time since Lawler left the UFC, was it because he was offered more money else where or was he cut?

I don't know, but I want him back.I don't think he'll win the belt but I am sure as hell he'll be in exciting fights.

Lawler is a true vet in the sport, he been at it since he was 18.
His biggest strength sometimes becomes a weakness in that he has such massive k.o power he relies on his too much
Also he looks unmotivated sometimes but that can happen when you been training for 12 years

Lawler's KO of Manhoef was so awesome.

Was a big fan of Lawler way back when. I'd like too see him in the UFC again, although like previously stated, I dont see him being a belt contender.

He was cut after losing two fights in a row. Don't know why he never made it back to the UFC maybe he was making more then what UFC was willing to pay.

Yeah it is odd that Lawler never came back. I remember once upon a time Dana was talking Robbie up as a guy who was being buried by Strikeforce but Lawler re-upped with Strikeforce shortly thereafter.

lawler always put on good fights. Him and chris lytle way back in the day was good one.
