    Not sure yet about the next title shot. They may give him one more fight 1st. Lawler/Thompson would be a war though!

    damn the meet and greet is on thursday at 2:30pm.. what kind of timing is that? they must not want people to show up. i'll try to go anyway but they should have made it for a saturday.

    i really don't think it means too much though. carlos condit was here a few years ago for something similar.

    but robbie lawler is like 1/4 filipino or something so let the speculation begin

    You'd think they would capitalise on Robbie's Pinoy blood eh. Get him out there doing this stuff

    The only thing we can assume it means is they see him as a viable promotional tool at this point. Somewhere on the level of appeal of Carlos Condit. That can't be a bad thing.
