"Just waiting for all the legal stuff to get done with so I can figure out where I'm going to land. I'm willing to fight the best in the world at basically 185. I'll go to the UFC. I'll go to Strikeforce. Whoever wants to fight, I want to compete against the best."
-- "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler -- the last man to hold the Elite XC middleweight title -- vaguely discussed his future following the collapse of his previous employer on the latest episode of "Inside MMA" on HDNet this past Friday. It's interesting he mentions the UFC as a possible landing spot because he already competed for the promotion seven times over a two year span from 2002 to 2004. After winning his first three fights in the Octagon he went on to drop three of his next four contests, which led to his release. However, Lawler has rebounded nicely since then and has only lost once in 10 fights since the departure. He is currently considered by most outlets to be a top 10 middleweight fighter. And with the UFC still looking for depth in the 185 pound division, we might just see him back in the UFC after all. Perhaps most important he and his management team are on very good terms with company president, Dana White.
