Robbie Lawler hopes to return to the UFC, Matt Hughes makes his predictions

He spoke for more than hour with UFC Fight Club members before the weigh-ins at the Chicago Theatre. The highlight of the session actually had nothing to do with Hughes. Robbie Lawler came out for a brief second and said that he is hoping to fight in the UFC soon.

First, Hughes let us know that he and Serra will be fighting in mid-April, and his wife doesn't want him to start punching until Serra's blood is on the canvas. He also said that he thinks Brock Lesnar will beat Randy Couture, and that B.J. Penn will only beat Georges St. Pierre if Penn is in the best shape of his life.

Hughes also shared his opinions on some non-fight issues. He told us that he doesn't like women's MMA because he doesn't like women getting hit. My thought is that childbirth is more gruesome than anything that can happen in the Octagon, so women can handle a punch or two. After being asked, he also mentioned that he will be voting for McCain.

My favorite point was when he mentioned his lovely two-year-old daughter. He is already planning to be cleaning his gun whenever her first suitors stop by. If that young man isn't intimidated by his name and career, I bet that the guns won't scare him, either.

I'd be really excited if Robbie came back.

There is an almost unlimited number of good fights for Lawler in the UFC, especially if he drops back to WW. Lawler/Marcus Davis would be awesome. Lawler/Paul Taylor, Lawler/Lytle 2, Lawler/Anderson, Lawler/Rich, Lawler/Bisping, all those would be awesome fights

Disagree. Lawler is not a good fighter. He would get worked by 3/4s of the MW division.

It's simple. Watch him fight. He's just a brawler. Who in the UFC's MW division wouldn't beat him.

Ace
Hendo
Anderson
Bisping
Maia
Leben
Okami
Marquardt
Cote
Palharas

would all beat " Ruthless"
