Lawler's title bouts against Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 in 2014, Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 in 2015, and Carlos Condit at UFC 195 in 2016 all earned numerous awards for Fight of the Year in their respective years. In July 2016, Lawler faced Tyron Woodley in the main event of UFC 201 and lost the fight early in the first round via knockout, losing his title.

Needing recovery time from his last fight, Lawler took to the ring again in July 2017 against Donald Cerrone at UFC 214 and won via unanimous decision. In September 2021, Lawler faced returning veteran Nick Diaz in what would be a rematch of their bout from UFC 47 in which Robbie was handed the first of only four knockout losses in his entire career.

In April 2023, it was announced that Lawler and MacDonald would be inducted into the UFC Fight Wing Hall of Fame for their welterweight title bout from 2015. In Robbie Lawler's final fight, he knocked out Niko Price just 38 seconds into the bout at UFC 290.
