UFC fighter Tom Lawlor – who is a big wrestling fan – arrived in style yesterday at the UFC 154 weigh-ins paying tribute to The Shockmaster from WCW.
If you recall, The Shockmaster – played by the man formerly known as Tug Boat and Typhoon in WWE – made his WCW debut with a bang, tripping in the entrance.
Lawlor walked out for his weigh-in wearing a helmet similar to that of The Shockmaster and also fell as he went up the steps, imitating the grand debut from WCW.
Lawlor fights Francis Carmont tonight in Montreal, Canada, at UFC 154: St-Pierre vs Condit.
