    Interesting how he got props and good words from a division full of rivalries, shit-talk, and excessive animosity:
    -Askren: “I like Robbie. I never wanted to fight him”
    -Jorge: “Ben should have given Robbie a rematch. Robbies a real fighter.”
    -Colby: “Robbie was the last real WW champ” (disparaged the way he left ATT later though)

    Also got mad love from Usman and Woodley treated him with pure sportsmanship during their fight buildup.

    It’s interesting because all of those guys noted above are relentless shit talkers and drama queens beefing with each other 24/7.

    Dude always brings it in the cage and seems super chill outside of the cage. Not surprising he's well respected by his peers.

    Similar aura to Mark Hunt before he became outspoken towards PED users. Didn't say much, a KO artist, old school fighter with experience in other major organizations.

    He's a fighters fighter. Someone like Khabib controls the whole fight, whilst Robbie lets his opponent control when he's gonna get slept

    Outside cage Robbie is total class an a really good guy

    Inside Cage he is just a warrior who wo t quit for anything an goes out on his shield.

    Who would shit talk a guy who is like that. Even Colby wont.

    Robbie is the man. He comes to fight, and is very professional and good natured.

    Him telling Herb, "Don't worry about it, you're a hell of a ref." Says volumes about the man.

    He’s a sweetheart outside the cage and a violent savage animal inside it

    I remember when a young Robbie got KO'd by Nick Diaz in about UFC 37.5 or something like that. The guy has been around for years, the UFC and for awhile some smaller orgs., but he always makes an exciting fight. Who remembers when he almost killed Frank Trigg in some other org. outside UFC? Guys like him and Andrei Arlovski are pioneers in making this sport great. Glad he is appreciated by most. Hope he clobbers Covington!!:D

    Ive been watching MMA for a loong time. Robbie is possibly my favorite fighter of all time. That KO to Nick was BS

    meh.
    Robbie is a tough motherf*cker and everyone knows.

    Much like a rottweiler, he does not need to bark.
    Little puddles and pomeranians need to bark.

    And this is why most great fighters are not trash talkers.

    That’s because Robbie is like the coolest dude ever.

    Flying knee KO over Colby, give him another title

    Robbie Lawler KO'd Steve Berger at UFC 37.5 on June 22, 2002. Look it up before you start insulting people. I got the fight wrong, but the event is real. I will out fan you anyday of the week sonny!<45>

    On one hand, Lawler went limp like he was about to face plant the canvas.

    On the other hand, look at who ref'd the fight.
