Shamrock eyes November fight with Robbie Lawler

http://mmamania.com/2008/07/22/elite...-lawler-fight/

Well first I assume this is if Lawler beats Smith which will probably happen then I think he will also beat Shamrock by T/KO or DEC

O man this would be great. Frank is such a great promoter for the sport so Lawler vs Frank on CBS would be great. I think Frank would ebat Lawler if he takes this fight seriously and since Frank wouldn't want to lose on CBS I think he would win.

Renzo didn't whip him and Cung almost got KO'd in the third round before Frank couldn't keep going.

Frank's a more technical striker and has a very good chin. I see him KO'ing Lawler.

Also, Frank's ground game is better.

Which Renzo fight did you watch? Renzo layed and prayed in side control. Did he even land one clean strike from the top?

This of course is after Frank knocked out Renzo's brother Cesar on an earlier card.

On the Cung fight, c'mon now Frank stood and kickboxed with an undefeated San Shao champion. And by the end of the third round Frank was closing the gap. So his arm broke, blocking a kick, it happens. His Legacy is in tact.

How can you question Franks legacy? He's held titles in WEC, Pancrease, UFC, and Strikeforce. He was also the WKC submission champ. He vacated the UFC title, which by the way is the only reason Tito Ortiz was able to wear it. Because Tito tried taking it from Frank and Frank put Tito on his ass. Frank was also undefeated in the UFC.

On the Fight being too tough for Frank to take, well he'll take any tough fight. And he's got hands from hell. He is capable of upsetting Lawler.

Frank's still in good shape, so I really don't know why many are making him out to be this broken down fighter.

I REALLY REALLY hope this fight happens, now that it is rumoured - I so need this to happen, I just think it would be class... I'd be rooting for Frank, and it would be awesome.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
