Walking through the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas during the recent UFC 114 weekend, Tom Lawlor heard the familiar bassline of the David Bowie and Queen classic rock collaboration "Under Pressure."

Ever the showman, Lawlor filed it away in his mind, well aware that it could make for another entrance spectacular, hot on the heels of his Apollo Creed/"Rocky IV" homage at UFC 113.

But the underlying reason the song struck Lawlor is not lost on him. After two straight losses in the octagon, he's well aware that it's coming down to do-or-die for his UFC career.

"I just need to look at some things I did wrong in those fights and correct them so I don't make those mistakes again," Lawlor told MMA Fighting. "Because really I'm on the bubble right now as far as my career in the UFC goes. I can only come up with so many more entrances that keep my job. I've got to start winning fights."

Personally, I think his weigh-ins and entrances are enough to keep him around for some time. If Danzig can be 3-3 in the UFC why not keep Lawlor

He's 3-3 in the UFC, not 3-6.
