Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back, which means Nostradumbass is back with it, for the upcoming UFC 195: “Lawler vs. Condit” pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 2, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That’s where Robbie Lawler will try to continue his torrid run through the welterweight division, already proving he’s not a one-hit wonder with last month’s destruction of Rory MacDonald. Standing in his way is the always-dangerous Carlos Condit, who previously held the interim strap because he’s pretty damn good.

One more and he’s likely to face the winner of this fight.

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from Robbie Lawler when he came back to UFC in early 2013. After all, his Strikeforce record was a forgettable 3-5 and he was already 31 ….View full article
