(Oh. No. He. Didn’t.)
Tom Lawlor told us he was laboring under exceedingly high expectations after his display at UFC 100, and he didn’t know how he was going to live up to them. I mean, how do you follow a ‘Just Bleed’ homage? If you’re Lawlor, you do it with a tribute to UFC old schooler/Niagara Falls madman Harold Howard. Just look at the attention to detail. The mullet, the wife beater with accompanying black belt, the willingness to do a crazy scissor flip kick at any time (yeah, he totally did that) — it’s all there. And while a lot of these new fans might not appreciate the reference to a guy who last fought for the UFC in 1995, the hardcores are sure to eat it up.
