Funny interview! Go Robbie!

With limbless opponent unavailable, Strikeforce's Lawler settles for Amagovby John Morgan on Jan 05, 2012 at 12:55 am ET
LAS VEGAS With veteran slugger Robbie Lawler (18-8 MMA, 2-4 SF) struggling through a 2-4 stretch in his past six fights a run largely contested against grappling-first opponents you might think he'd welcome a bout with a fellow slugger as a sort of dream matchup.

Not the case.

While Lawler is complimentary of his "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" opponent, Adlan Amagov (9-1-1 MMA, 2-0 SF), he said it's not an ideal booking. No, the perfect opponent would actually be a lot more defenseless.

"I would rather fight someone with no arms and no legs," Lawler jokingly told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "That would probably be the best matchup for me.

"I would look amazing."

While Lawler's comment is obviously (hopefully) laced with sarcasm, it's interesting to note that he's not more piqued to fight someone who will likely trade in the pocket rather than drag him to the floor. Perhaps the near-11-year veteran (incredibly still just 29 years old) has a few new tricks up his sleeve.

"I've been around [MMA] for a while," Lawler said. "I'm just trying to get better. I think that's what everybody is trying to do get better and try to evolve your game.

"I am learning new things. I'm getting stronger, getting faster. I've been around the game for a long time now. It's almost just bringing out the things I've learned more than anything. The things I learned eight years ago, I just all of a sudden start to use and start to bring into my game."

Lawler conducted his training camp in Davenport, Iowa, along with the help of Matt Pena and a host of less high-profile trainers whose names the veteran insists you probably wouldn't know. He was winless in 2011 after dropping fights to Tim Kennedy and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. At just 1-3 in his past four bouts, Lawler would seem to be in desperate need of a victory, but the notoriously withdrawn slugger refuses to address any added pressure.

"I'm just going to go out there and try and beat people up and get after 'em," Lawler said. "Try to learn from your mistakes and try to get better."

Amagov is currently unbeaten in his past 10 fights, and he's put on a pair of entertaining contests under the Strikeforce banner, but he's certainly an unknown in comparison to Lawler. Still, Lawler said he's not looking past the Russian import.

"I've watched a couple of fights," Lawler said. "He's real explosive, really good strikes, lots of really good kicks pretty good fighter. Explosive."

It's a word that has often been used to describe Lawler during the course of a storied career that also includes stints in the UFC, PRIDE, EliteXC and the IFL.

But Lawler has endured a rough stretch in recent times and some of have questioned what he has left to offer.

Lawler intends to answer that on Saturday night, when he and Amagov meet on the main card of the Showtime-broadcast "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" event in Las Vegas. But what will drive Lawler as he steps into the cage? The desire to call himself champion? A will to prove the haters wrong?

Lawler insists it's much simpler than that.

"What motivates me?" Lawler asked. "I like to win. That's my motivation.

"I don't really worry too much about other people."

Any word on how Robbie did? I'm on a bachelor party & haven't heard anything...Just finished, Robbie taken down early, his opponent hit him with a blatant illegal knee while on the ground, deducted a point...The fight restarts, Robbie lands a flying knee and finishes it with some power shots...BEAUTIFUL

Haha, thank you! Asked & answered!!!

Round 1: Lawler aggressively moves forward only to have Amagov dump him down with a quick double-leg. Lawler tries to get up and Amagov holds a front headlock. Amagov lands an illegal knee and loses a point. Lawler lands a huge flying knee and Amagov falls face first to the floor. Lawler turns around and finishes with left hands. Lawler jumped so high withe flying knee that he almost jumped over Amagov.

Robbie Lawler wins via TKO (flying knee followed by punches) - Round 1, 1:48 (http://matt-hughes.com/forums/x-apple-data-detectors://3)

Frank: *replay of the illegal knee strike to Robbie's head* Well there it is, beautfiul...Illegal, but beautiful.

Pat: Yeah, that's right up your alley:laugh:

For any that care, Rockhold KO'd Jardine too, not surprising...Rockhold is a good striker and Jardine has a glass jaw

I really think Robbie's butt spin on Amagov's head is what dropped Amagov :laugh: and then the "Ruthless" fists for the finish. :punch:

Robbie looked sharp...great reflexes! :cool:

Ben, you've got another great one to add on to your Robbie gifs.

Yeah, plus Jardine looked terrible at the weigh-ins Friday. He really had to kill himself to get down there.
