Lawler is gonna get it. I think he might have underestimated Smith the first time and now is coming fully prepared. Smith can still win this. He landed some good punches, but Lawler is the tougher fighter and will end it late or win by decision. Come'on guys, am I the only one going to watch it?

If the punchers chance theory is ever to be used in an argument for a fight, it definatly has to be for this one.

Lawler hands are quicker and he has better combinations. And he hits like a brickhouse.

But damn Smith can take those shots, and he can give punishment. He throws great elbows and lands heavy blows.

I think Lawler takes this. But Smith has an unbeleivable punchers chance.

I don't foresee Scott being as much of a test as he was the first go 'round. I think Robbie might have slightly underestimated him in that bout.

This time though, we'll see Lawler come in with a formulated game plan for the fight, and just pick Smith apart at-will.

Like others have said, Scott has a great puncher's chance here...but he's not fighting Pete Sell. He's fighting Robbie Lawler, the guy who RIPPED right through Ninja, in a way I've never seen before. I mean, his loss to Kang was bad, but the way Robbie PUT HIM AWAY was just nasty.

I would not be opposed to Lawler vs. Shamrock either.

I think Robbie KO's him in round 3.

However I will say I think this will be a action packed brawl I just think Lawler is better on the feet.

I have Lawler winning a KO in the 3rd or 4th as well.
