Lawler Finds Peace As Welterweight Champion

Robbie Lawler: The UFC's Zen Welterweight Champion
By Jeremy Botter, bleacherreport.com
LAS VEGAS — Robbie Lawler, UFC welterweight champion of the world, decided to do a little shopping after Thursday's pre-fight press conference at the MGM Grand.

A round of leisurely shopping is not what you might expect from a man about to defend his title on arguably the largest UFC event of the year, or from a man about to face a young, hungry opponent in Rory MacDonald.

Fight week generally brings out a different side of fighters, because they are hungry and they are angry that they are hungry. They're irritable and edgy after endless rounds of media obligations. Put simply, they are not much fun to be around.
