    This is his chance for a once in a lifetime payday if Conor allows Lawler to share the Octagon with him at UFC 200. If I were Lawler I make sure I was cage side and then I would start shit with Conor right after he knocks Diaz stiff.

    Robbie doesn't play those games.

    Robbie also already makes over 500k a fight , he's not that desperate to fight Conor.

    Lawler is the richest welterweight in the division and has been for a while.

    500K is peanuts compared to what Conor could pay him.

    I think it would be a smart move, but I don't think it makes sense for Conor to move up before fighting for the LW belt.

    Easy fight for Ruthless with a HUGE payday. I'd rather fight Conor than anyone of the other killers in the WW top 5. I'd be a special commentator if I was Robbie.

    He would make substantially more, specially with PPV points, having said that, i dont think he makes exactly peanuts this days tho, just needs to do a little more talking to sell his fights better.

    Edit: I doubt Conor would try to fight him before getting the RDA fight, him losing to Lawler would kill his chances of a another title fight following that loss, he would be forced to defend the 145 belt, something that a few people already think he will not be defending it and its just riding it up to another title fight and the "2 weight champ" thing.

    He also likely got points from 189 for being champion.

    He likes McGregor's style, big fights, big crowds, and big checks. So yes, he absolutely should show up.

    UFC: Hey, man, would you get in the cage afterwards if Conor wins to do a staredown for UFC 200?

    Lawler: No. I don't play those games. I'll stick with my $500,000. Shove your $5 million up your arse

    Yeah, of course he wouldn't if he was asked.

    He should get into the ring with a steel chair and his manager should throw salt in Conor's eyes

    It should be a strap match, or a ladder match.

    He's not desperate. But he's not retarded either.

    It's a fight he can absolutely win. And it would be a HUGE payday. He knows he can't keep getting into these wars forever. His jaw will go. He will lose the title one day, and then he will get no more PPV bonuses. He would be foolish not to entertain the idea. Even in a loss, he might earn enough to retire.

    Nah, I don't think he'll call him out. A Champion doesn't need to. It's a good promo reel if Lawler was to step in the cage and square off if that was what the UFC wanted to headline 200.
