Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Photo of the Day: Tom Lawlor Does His Best Harold Howard Impression

(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.  

Oh, and for those interested, all fighters made weight.  A video of the intense Nate Diaz/Gray Maynard staredown is after the jump.

@ 831 Son

"Jamie Varner acted like a complete bitch after that fight."

Area code name guy, does it feel good saying that behind that keyboard of yours? I would fucking love to see you say that to his face.

Why no WEC coverage? This is garbage.

WEC is 10x the promotion SF is

So Lawlor is having some fun while hes got a little spotlight - who cares? Let the guy have a good time. Careers are over too quick so let they guys (and girls) have some fun while they can.

And the California Kid is BACK!!

@Arastamus - jokes about how ugly the new ring girl is are retarded. Geez dude. So retarded. But you are right. And that shit is funny.

@831 Son - I knew you were really Nate Diaz. I knew it!

P.S. I hope you learned something from the Guida fight.

At the next weight ins, if Tom Lawlor comes out wearing a single boxing glove and in black face, I will shit myself.

ZCane13- January 10, 2010 at 10:01 pm
Because he is a bitch. He can go ahead and make the move to Boxing if he doesn't want to "grapple"
831 Son- January 10, 2010 at 9:44 pm
Yea and I agree, Jamie Varner acted like a complete bitch after that fight.

Tact does it feel good saying that behind that keyboard of yours? I would fucking love to see you say that to his face.

The funny part about him bitching about Henderson grappling was the fact that Varner was complaining that he had taken Henderson down. What, doesn't that count as 'grappling'? And that was an AMAZING finish: Jumping into a guillotine? Crazy

Why is CP encouraging this guys behavior?
whitey- January 10, 2010 at 8:52 pm
just finished watching wec.

jamie varner is a dumbass. "i came to fight and he came to grapple so......" just lost via knee to the stomach followed by standing guillotine. sound like "grappling"? no it sounds like you lost a "fight"
StRyKeR- January 10, 2010 at 8:45 pm
but would you fight him?
Tact- January 10, 2010 at 7:56 pm
@ Nate Diaz

Clenching your jaw and acting like a douche does not make you tough, or cool. Neither does a permenant scowl and furrowed brow, fag.

On a related note Da Da 5000 is fighting on a card this week.
TheRealKadumel- January 10, 2010 at 6:42 pm

whitey- January 10, 2010 at 6:19 pm
as long as there is a diaz around, there will be haters
NECROPHYTE- January 10, 2010 at 5:45 pm
Yeah that "who let the dogs out" entrance by Lawlor was lame and weak.
El Guapo- January 10, 2010 at 5:30 pm
Free Harold Howard!! But if not,at least put his lil "episode" on Cops..

Ahhh, Nate Diaz. Guy has a chip on his shoulder the size of Tejas. Good fighter, but he swears he's GSP Jr or something.
Viva Hate- January 10, 2010 at 5:22 pm
Please Lawler do not make the mistake of doing a Joe Son impression next..........yikes.
skeletor- January 10, 2010 at 5:12 pm
Tom Lawler is an idiot. He tries way to hard to be funny, and is a attention whore just like his homosexual friend Seth. I hope he gets his ass beat bad tomorrow night.

Also I hope Diaz chokes Maynard out. It's not fair to the LW's in the division to be forced to potentially contract the herp from him and his dry humping antics.
Arastmaus- January 10, 2010 at 5:09 pm
Well... he makes a prettier woman than the new ring girl at least.
