SAN JOSE, Calif.
Crosby-Packers-Jersey/">Mason Crosby Jersey . -
Robbie Lawler believes hes ready for another shot at the
UFC welterweight championship he let slip through his
hands four months ago. A number of fighters in the
division can make the same claim. But the 32-year-old
Lawler is the clear-cut favourite with four wins and a
narrow loss in his five fights since returning to the
UFC. "Everythings clicking at the right time," Lawler
said. "Before, I wasnt ready for the stage. I didnt want
to do these interviews. I didnt want to be in front of
the cameras. I just wanted to beat people up and get out.
Ive grown up now. Im doing what it takes to be a really
good fighter." Lawlers lone loss since coming back was to
Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 in March when the two fought
for the vacant title left open after former champ Georges
St. Pierre stepped down, saying he needed a break from
the sport. Lawler (23-10, 19 KOs) is expected to get
another crack at Hendricks, provided the top-ranked
contender beats knockout artist Matt Brown (21-11, 13
KOs) in Saturdays main event at the SAP Center. It will
be the Lawlers fifth fight in the past year. Included in
those were knockout wins against Bobby Voelker and Jake
Ellenberger, and a split-decision over Rory MacDonald.
The win over Ellenberger on May 24 put Lawler firmly back
into the title hunt after his loss to Hendricks in March.
"Its good. It kept me busy, kept me working," Lawler
said. "I didnt have to go into these last two camps
trying to get into shape, so I could work on things. I
could work on fine-tuning skills and just get better day
to day." Lawler left the UFC a decade ago after
consecutive losses to Nick Diaz and Evan Turner in 2004.
On the fast track since his return, Lawler acknowledged
he has watched very little tape of the scrappy Brown, who
has won his past seven fights ¡ª six by knockout. "I
didnt watch any Ellenberger fights either," Lawler said.
"I have about five or six coaches that do all the
breaking down for me, and then they put me in those
situations in practice. Its always worked out pretty
good. So when Im in the fight, Ive already been there a
million times." Hendricks, on the mend from an arm
injury, has already made it clear he expects to fight the
winner of the Lawler-Brown matchup, possibly early next
year. Thats fine with Lawler, who plans to take a much-
needed respite following his fight with Brown. Brown,
ranked fifth in the welterweight division, is also
looking to use the fight as a springboard into title
contention. The 33-year-old veteran fighter hasnt lost
since getting submitted by Seth Baczynski at UFC 139 in
2011. Brown is considered one of the most intense
fighters in the UFC, and he did nothing to dispel that
reputation during a public workout earlier this week. He
brushed off talk of being an underdog and took a minor
dig at his opponent when asked if he was a fan of Lawler.
"I was more of a Nick Diaz fan when he knocked (Lawler)
out," Brown said with a laugh. To prepare for the fight,
Brown said he reverted back to his former style of
training after previously being criticized for
overworking. The workouts included carrying wheelbarrows
and sleds, along with other fighters, up long, steep
mountain trails. "I said, Lets go back to being raw,
crazy, stupid ... in our backyard and just wrecking each
other every day," Brown said. "I think it worked out
good. We brought in tough guys and we just beat the
(heck) out of each other. Its called getting back to the
primitive, back to the raw, back to whats real. Back to
what got me here."

two-year reign was over. And Bosh almost sounded
relieved. The Heat got rolled in the NBA Finals by San
Antonio, losing in five games, the last three of them
lopsided, and for the first time since 2011 there would
be no championship parade in Miami. Almost a week after
the NFL pointed to them for failing to stop a bounty
program involving some two dozen Saints players, coach
Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis apologized
and took the blame for violations that "happened under
our watch." "These are serious violations and we
understand the negative impact it has had on our game,"
Payton and Loomis added. "Both of us have made it clear
within our organization that this will never happen
again, and make that same promise to the NFL and most
importantly to all of our fans," Payton and Loomis said
in a joint statement Tuesday. Payton and Loomis also said
New Orleans owner Tom Benson "had nothing to do" with the
bounty pool. "We acknowledge that the violations
disclosed by the NFL during their investigation of our
club happened under our watch. We take full
responsibility," they said. The leagues investigation,
released last Friday, said the bounty program was funded
primarily by players for the past three seasons and was
overseen by former Saints defensive co-ordinator Gregg
Williams. He admitted to running the program and
apologized within hours after the report surfaced. The
NFL said it confirmed Benson was unaware of the program,
and that he told Loomis to stop it immediately, but that
Loomis did not. The league also said Payton, though not
directly involved, was aware of the bounty pool, but did
nothing to stop it. Williams now is defensive co-
ordinator for the St. Louis Rams. He met with NFL
security officials on Monday as part of the leagues
ongoing investigation. Once it concludes -- the league
says there is no timetable -- Roger Goodell likely will
hand out the stiffest penalties of his 5 1/2 years as
commissioner. Goodell has frequently taken a hard line on
any action that threatens player safety. He suspended
Detroits Ndamukong Suh for two games for stomping on an
opponent last season; banned Pittsburghs James Harrison
for one game after a series of flagrant hits that
culminated in a collision with Cleveland quarterback Colt
McCoys helmet; and has ramped up the amount of fines for
what the league terms "egregious hits." NFL spokesman
Greg Aiello said before handing out any penalties,
Goodell will review the information with his staff and
consult with others, including the union and player
leaders. The players union has not seen a full report of
the investigation, so it cant be certain if Goodell will
levy punishment under the on-field discipline or the
personal conduct policy. Theres a major distinction,
because players can appeal on-field punishment to
independent arbitrators Art Shell and Ted Cottrell.
Appeals under the personal conduct policy are heard by
Goodell and other league officials. "The commissioner has
broad authority to impose discipline for violation of
league rules. Were not going to put it in a category
right now," Aiello said. The NFL hasnt cited specific
pplayers, but fines and suspensions are probable for
those found to have participated in the bounty program.
Matthews-Packers-Jersey/">Clay Matthews Jersey. "We
take this issue seriously and we continue to look into
it," union spokesman George Atallah said. Goodell fined
the New England Patriots $250,000 and their coach, Bill
Belichick, $500,000 for the Spygate scandal in 2007, when
the team was caught illegally videotaping the Jets
sideline. New England also was stripped of a first-round
draft pick. That violation pales in comparison to a
bounty of up to $50,000 over the last three seasons that
rewarded players for knocking targeted opponents out of
games. The Saints can expect heavier sanctions than those
given the Patriots, with suspensions likely for Loomis
and Payton and a seven-figure fine for the organization.
"I dont think there can be a limited focus -- if the
league only is looking to penalize players and coaches,"
said George Martin, executive director of NFL Alumni and
a former player, adding: "It is kind of shocking it still
goes on in this time and age. "The organization has to
take responsibility for it because it took place under
their jurisdiction," he said. "The league needs to do
whatever it takes in the way of discipline to make sure
this is stemmed." John Lynch, an outstanding safety for
16 seasons, once was fined $75,000 for a hit on
Indianapolis tight end Dallas Clark. Lynch was one of the
hardest and surest tacklers in the NFL. He is just as
sure that Goodell will hand out hefty punishments. "I
would expect this to be pretty severe and harsh because
of the direction the commissioner has taken in making
player safety if not his top initiative, then one of
them," Lynch said. "If this is true, as blatant as this
is, and to have a coach out there saying, You knock this
guy out of the game. Get him taken off on a cart. Here is
the monetary reward, you need a severe and harsh
punishment." That coach has been identified by the league
as Williams, who could face a years suspension and a six-
figure fine. Maybe more. The Rams would not say Tuesday
what duties Williams currently is performing. "Coach
Williams has shown contrition for his actions and
continues to co-operate with the NFL in this
investigation," Rams GM Kevin Demoff told the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch. "Out of respect for the NFLs ongoing
process, we will refrain from commenting until the league
has come to a final decision on all aspects of this
matter." Williams could turn to the NFL Coaches
Association for help. Its executive director, David
Cornwell, was concerned about individual coaches being
singled out. "As this matter unfolds," Cornwell said, "I
will work with our executive committee to protect the
interests of individual coaches without compromising the
NFLCAs fundamental belief that fair play and
sportsmanship begins with the men who teach the game."
