Robert Glenn "Robbie" Lawler famed as Robbie Lawler is a former UFC Welterweight Champion who is famous with his octagon name Robbie (Ruthless). He is one of the prominent mixed martial artists. He became the UFC Welterweight champion by defeating another superstar Johny Hendricks who had fought Georges St-Pierre in a very close match. As of 22nd July 2019, he is #11 in the official UFC welterweight rankings. Overall, he is a very talented person. 

After steamrolling Robbie Lawler, Colby Covington’s day of reckoning is near

Covington was going places athletically but stuck in neutral through most of his UFC career until he found a voice, though not exactly a unique one. When he speaks, you can hear his influences: a dose of Chael Sonnen, a dash of Ric Flair, a few dollops of Sean Hannity. The recipe is as obvious as it is over-seasoned. But that is the whole point for Covington. He wants opponents and fans alike to feel overwhelmed. Your anger is his pursuit. Hate is an easy emotion to spark. What does he do in the cage? Not so easy. Last night at UFC on ESPN 5 in Newark, New Jersey, Covington sliced through former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler in his same kind of insufferable style. “Insufferable” in the sense of overwhelming, not in the sense of the “unpleasantness” often associated with his name. With Covington, the two are easy to confuse by design. Despite a short-notice pairing, Covington fired off 541 strikes during the five-round bout, a UFC record. He jabbed and pawed and fired, and left Lawler only slivers of time to operate his usually fearsome offense. He also took Lawler down 10 times. On the judges’ scorecards, it was a shutout. It was a victory that was actually stunning in execution given the personal stakes for Covington. Following a seven-fight streak, that should be enough to cinch Covington a title shot, but he wasn’t taking any chances. Covington’s fight weeks have equally become about pomp and bluster, MMA’s most controversial showman. His “Make America Great Again” hat is his favorite accouterment, he arrives with a melange of under-dressed women, he solicits venom by co-opting Kurt Angle’s infamous “You Suck” WWE walkout music. To Covington, anything is a prop. The U.S. flag, the interim title, the First Family. Yes, the Trumps (Eric and Don, Jr.) were at Prudential Center, front-row center, to watch him fight. The President of the United States, 14 minutes after tweeting about the horrific El Paso shootings yesterday, had moved on to wishing Covington luck. He later privately congratulated Covington on his win through a phone call. Reminder: this wasn’t even a title fight! Covington has always been headed for a day of reckoning-whether glorious victory or spectacular defeat, and that day is nigh. He’s all-in, and whether you’re a Trump, whether you’re praying for Covington to win or Usman to knock his block off, it’s time to brace yourself.
