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?
âI like action movies. I like guys justÂ going in there and wreaking havoc. I just watchedÂ that new Denzel WashingtonÂ movie (The Equalizer), itâs kind ofÂ like The Specialist, where heâs aÂ badass and he goes around andÂ does his thing.â
Whatâs the last movie you sawÂ and did you enjoy it?
â 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
If there was a movie about theÂ life of Robbie Lawler who wouldÂ play you?
âI 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 thatâs tough. You want toÂ look good. I donât know.â
You could play yourself...
âI said I wanted a goodÂ actor. Iâm not a good actor. IÂ would ruin it. It would goÂ straight to VHS... (laughs)Â thatâs how bad it would be,Â straight to VHS.â
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?
âI drive a 2013 Ram 1500 crew cab. ItâsÂ sweet. I donât speed around. I donâtÂ get speeding tickets, I just cruise around. It's nice."
What is your dream carâŚ orÂ truck?
âI donât 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
