Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Merry-Andrew Tom Lawlor is preparing for his upcoming 185-pound showdown against Francis Carmont by strapping on a giant diaper and slamming his bare chest into another grown man. Apparently the "Filthy" one thinks he's fighting Yokozuna instead of "Limitless."
And the gang at MMA Fighting plays it straight.
That accounts for the flutie fight music and dramatic camera angles, but at the end of the day, this is nothing more than Lawlor trying to one-up himself in this latest entry into his goofy pre-fight rituals. Not that I'm surprised, considering his legacy on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8.
No harm, no foul.
Hopefully that's the case tomorrow night (Nov. 17, 2012) when he gets locked inside the cage against the fearsome Frenchman, who is probably not amused by Lawlor's quirkiness heading into the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
We shall see.
