UFC 189 media scrum videos featuring Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald

Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald gathered for the mixed martial arts (MMA) media to hold interview scrums following their UFC 189 open workouts on Wednesday (pics), breaking down this weekend's pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event welterweight title fight, which takes place this Saturday night (July 11, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Robbie Lawler on playing second fiddle in the Conor McGregor circus:

"It's just business as usual. If I had to carry the show, I would do that. I'm just gonna go out there and be me and get in Rory's face and get a knockout. I don't really concentrate on the promotion as much. I'm just gonna be me and hopefully the crowd loves it."

We do!

Rory MacDonald on losing to "Ruthless" in 2013:

"It re-motivated me. It just lit the fire again. Sometimes the fire goes out a bit, it sparked the flame and now I'm feeling good and hungry. My coaches get a second look at how our two styles match up and figure out better methods, that's the only difference."
