"Robbie Lawler came as close as you can to winning UFC gold without actually capturing a belt when he lost a close decision after going to Johny Hendricks after a war last month at UFC 171. It might appear to have been a crushing loss to the welterweight but Lawler insists that he isn't down on himself.

"'I’m not dwelling on the loss at all,” Lawler told MMAjunkie in a recent interview.

"'It comes down to getting better, working on my skills and pushing myself to get better. That’s about it.'

"It might help that Lawler already has another challenge to focus himself on - a fight against Jake Ellenberger May 24 at UFC 173 in Las Vegas."
