Tom Lawlor Was Broke Going Into UFC On Fuel 3 Bout

"I'll be honest. I'm broke. I have no money. This money that I got today, it's going to be the first time I've deposited a check in over a year. A year and a half. This is like a big deal to me. I had to borrow money from friends and family just in order to go into this fight. I want to thank them, obviously. This means a lot to me mentally, it means a lot to my bank account."
"I think I miscalculated the cost of living in the Northeast. I basically took all my money, bought a house and blew through my money - just living costs, traveling, price of gas, multiple training locations."
Glad he got the bonus. I'm not a huge fan of Lawlor as a fighter, but he has had some pretty epic entrances/weigh in appearances, so it's nice to see him out of money trouble, for now at least.
