The UFC can hang an "under new management" sign on the octagon.
The new era under the Hollywood entertainment conglomerate WME-IMG banner kicks off Saturday with UFC 201 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. UFC President Dana White and the new owners have suggested little will change immediately for the promotion.
Robbie Lawler can only hope that also means the staus quo remains at the top of the welterweight division.
The UFC still has plenty of buzz coming off the landmark 200 pay-per-view, though the aftermath has been sullied in recent weeks by former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar's failed drug tests, as well as Jon Jones' earlier test failure.
