    No surprise that there is tons of talk about Nick. But let's not overlook Robbie.

    That man is an OG, a warrior, a true dedicated martial artist, athlete and just absolutely the classiest most humble dude the way he handled everything.

    He was quick to give credit and respect, never took any bait or lowered himself regardless of circumstances.

    Happy to see him enjoy the win.

    Been a fan of him since his first UFC run, followed him thru Superbrawl/Icon, EliteXC, Strikeforce and back to he too of the game.

    I got back into UFC right around their first fight and have followed both guys' careers since. Crazy to see a rematch 17 years apart.

    Great card tonight.

    His longevity is mind boggling.

    Robbie Lawler, ever the taciturn warrior, truly wanted this one (think how hard and furious he came right back up after getting KO'd cold in that first fight), but, as always, he remains classy and gracious in victory.

    can anyone tell me why all the mma journalists are asking such lame, repetitive questions? especially that fucker joe morgan is really annoying

    Is the ufc telling them to ask these softball questions, or are they really that stupid and boring?

    Was great to see him back and looking like his former self. Last couple of fights looked like he was done and sadly quickly hurtling towards retirement.

    If you rock the boat, you lose your press pass.

    Robbie needs to be inducted to the "Just Bleed Hall Of Fame" along with guys like Penn, Sakuraba, Hendo, Wanderlei. etc.

    Admittedly, Robbie seems like a straight shooter and a legitimately good guy, despite being an absolute terror as a fighter

    Robbie is the man. Always respectful and has put it on the line for years with numerous classic wars. How can anybody not be a fan of him?

    Indeed. Had to make this post as I feel Robbie's still getting overshadowed even after a win.

    He was all class towards Nick immediately after the fight. He's a good human. Scary fighter.

    He was stoic when his hand was raised. No emotion. No yelling and getting hyped that he won, all business.

    Love that guy.

    Lawler is the fighter that fighters should emulate. It’s nice to see some respect brought back in MMA.

    I mean he fought a fat guy who clearly just came off the couch and wasn't trained.

    It was a complete train wreck. Nick tapped to strikes after the first big shot he had to eat. It would be insanely embarrassing to gloat or make much of it.

    Robbie is happy the UFC was able to give him a high profile fight with an opponent that offered him next to zero threat. He was professional and just went about his business.

    Its kind of surprising it took him so long to sit Nick down who looked like he was punching through water. Its time for Robbie to wrap things up too, a very fine career.

    His voice has gotten a little deeper with some age
