Tom Lawlor is one of the most serious athletes competing in the UFC today. Of course, that’s if you consider the care he takes when it comes to memorable weigh-in appearances, off the wall Octagon entrances, and deadpan one-liners.
Yet something funny (pun intended) happened to Lawlor in the midst of all the antics that have made him an internet message board favorite – he turned into a serious middleweight prospect who may be a couple wins away from graduating to contender. So now, with two UFC wins in his pocket (including a 55 second submission of CB Dollaway at UFC 100 last July), and a big fight this Monday in Virginia against fellow up and comer Aaron Simpson, Lawlor isn’t seen as just a funny man anymore.
