If you watched the ESPN MMA Live preview special you may have caught a glimpse of Tom Lawlor’s ring entrance. All you could see was Lawlor’s feet, the bottom of an American flag and “Living in America” blaring in the background. I wasn’t 100% sure at the time, but this shaky video of the arena’s video screen confirms it. Tom Lawlor walked out as Apollo Creed from Rocky IV. Hilarious!
Unlike Apollo, Lawlor walked out of the cage in one piece, but once again, he failed to get the W. I love his weigh-in antics and his entrances, but he needs to start winning so we can see more.
