The original plan was for Conor McGregor to fight for the UFC lightweight belt at UFC 198. When champion Rafael Dos Anjos was injured, McGregor fought and lost to Nate Diaz at welterweight.

Before McGregor lost, fighting in the welterweight division got fans thinking about a potential future showdown with champion Robbie Lawler.

Lawler recently appeared on the radio and spoke about a potential fight and was confident things wouldn’t have gone well for McGregor:

Speaking with WSB-TV in Atlanta, Lawler said McGregor should consider himself lucky he wasn’t the one standing across the cage on that March night.

“Obviously, that was a big fight,” Lawler said. He’s a big draw, but it wouldn’t have been good for him. … Because if I hurt him, I wasn’t taking his neck.”

When asked for clarification of what he would have “taken,” Lawler gave a chilling answer.

“His soul,” Lawler said. “I’m a lot different than most people. He found a way out and (Nate) Diaz took his neck and was nice to him.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
