Pretty much this. I think Lawler's stand up is pretty ehhhh like I said, but his knock out power is legit. He can also be explosive when he brings his A game. It shows that a guy with average at best stand up can be successful against better strikers consistently if he has power and explosiveness.

Koscheck could potentially be competitive in the stand up, but he shouldn't take the risk.
