Video: Robbie Lawler, Rafael dos Anjos forced to interview side-by-side — and it gets super awkward

Maybe my tiny brain is just easily amused, but I can’t seem to get enough of this SportsCenter video interview with former champions Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos, who headline the UFC on FOX 26 event on Sat., Dec. 16, 2017, inside Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Those “Ruthless” eye rolls are gold.

Lawler (28-11, 1 NC) took a year off from mixed martial arts (MMA) following his knockout loss to Tyron Woodley in summer 2016. The rejuvenated slugger returned at UFC 214 to score a close decision victory over veteran “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone.

Dos Anjos (27-9) abandoned the 155-pound division after consecutive losses to Eddie Alvarez and Tony Ferguson, which he attributed to an unhealthy weight cut. Since his transition to 170 pounds, “RDA” scored wins over Tarec Saffiedine and Neil Magny.

UFC on FOX 26 will also feature the return of aging Brazilian bangers Glover Teixeira and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, who throw hands opposite light heavyweight hopefuls Misha Cirkunov and Jared Cannonier, respectively.
