UFC 189: Robbie Lawler's NSFW lip pic will make you gag, but stitched up 'Ruthless' insists it doesn't hurt

Robbie Lawler's reaction to getting sewn together like the Tristan Quilt?

Whatever.

"Ruthless" was busted open during his epic five-round bloodbath against welterweight contender Rory MacDonald, who failed in his fractured quest to usurp the 170-pound throne last Saturday night (July 11, 2015), in the UFC 189 co-main event from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the replay here.

"It doesn't hurt, it's just ugly," Lawler told Ariel Helwani the day after his pay-per-view (PPV) title defense. "It hurts to look at. I felt like I was going out there and beating him up, I don't know what [the judges] were seeing. One punch ended it, so obviously I think I was doing a lot more than those judges were giving me credit for."

And if you think Lawler looks bad, which may explain why the judges had him losing the fight, you should see MacDonald (before and after).
