UFC welterweight champion 'Ruthless' Robbie Lawler is among the most destructive fighters in his division, so it's no surprise he's a big fan of action movies. Lawler explained his love for action-packed blockbusters in a recent interview withÂ Fighters Only.
Is there a certain type of movie youÂ gravitate towards?
â€śI like action movies. I like guys justÂ going in there and wreaking havoc. I just watchedÂ that new Denzel WashingtonÂ movie (The Equalizer), itâ€™s kind ofÂ like The Specialist, where heâ€™s aÂ badass and he goes around andÂ does his thing.â€ť
Whatâ€™s the last movie you sawÂ and did you enjoy it?
â€ś I just watched The GamblerÂ with Mark Wahlberg too.Â I actually wanted to seeÂ American Sniper butÂ it was sold out thatÂ day. The Gambler was pretty good. IÂ watched the newest Sin City recentlyÂ too, and that was a pretty goodÂ movie. I like action and comediesÂ mostly.â€ť
If there was a movie about theÂ life of Robbie Lawler who wouldÂ play you?
â€śI have no idea! Do you go withÂ looks? Do you go with a physicalÂ character? Do you go with a real true actor?Â You want it to turn out well,Â so thatâ€™s tough. You want toÂ look good. I donâ€™t know.â€ť
You could play yourself...
â€śI said I wanted a goodÂ actor. Iâ€™m not a good actor. IÂ would ruin it. It would goÂ straight to VHS... (laughs)Â thatâ€™s how bad it would be,Â straight to VHS.â€ť
What was the first car you owned?
"My dad got it for me, it was a 1986 Chevy Celebrity."
What kind of car do you drive today?
â€śI drive a 2013 Ram 1500 crew cab. Itâ€™sÂ sweet. I donâ€™t speed around. I donâ€™tÂ get speeding tickets, I just cruise around. It's nice."
What is your dream carâ€¦ orÂ truck?
â€śI donâ€™t even know. SomethingÂ all-wheel drive. Maybe a niceÂ Audi. Maybe a nice PorscheÂ with all-wheel drive. I kind ofÂ like small SUVs, if they areÂ smooth andÂ fast.â€ť
