I really don't see Lawler standing much of a chance at all. He'll get beat everywhere, Hendricks is the real deal and Lawler is a generation behind. Johny is part of the new breed that fights less predictably than their predecessors. Guys like Weidman, Pettis, Jones, Hendricks are pulling away from the pack and leading the way to break out of the mold of abc fight styles where being well rounded simply isn't enough anymore. I don't see any way for Lawler to win, if they start trading Johny has the significant advantage. A few years ago maybe but Johny really knows how to approach a fight better than anyone at ww, he pushed GSP around like he was a little kid when they clinched.
