After the Misaki fight we know Manhoef is for real. Misaki is a world class fighter and has fought some of the best fighters at that weight class, and Manhoef basically tooled him (although the stoppage was early).

Add Lawler and Manhoef breaks the top 10.

WAR CIGANO

Actually I don't think that stoppage was early. Manhoef managed to get some really clean strikes and once he pulled his legs and blasted him with ground and pound if it had continued I could have seen that being Misaki's last fight. I'm glad it was stopped cause he was getting battered.

But i"m sure Robbie will meet a pretty similar fate.

WAR Manhoef!

let me see here... brawler vs precise technical striking? hmmmzzz OMG Manoef is going to look like Anderson Silva against Forrest Griffin in a fight with Lawler. Robbie better start training his wrestling & BJJ double the amount he usually does now.

Thumbs up Advantage

Yeah if it stays standing. If Robbie uses his underrated takedown still then its his advantage!

I think Melvin wins this if Robbie doesn't hit his button in an extange.

Robbie has some serious hands that alot of people are not considering here.

He definitely does and his fights with Trigg, both Scott Smith fights and fights with Falaniko Vitale prove he's a very capable striker, but then again Melvin is a super hard hitter but has superb technique. He's got the power, speed and knows how to setup his power shots so all that combined is probably going to end Robbie's night with a TKO or KO.

But as you said, Robbie always has the one punch knockout up his sleeves the same way Scott Smith does, so Melvin will have to be on his toes and fight an intelligent, aggressive fight to take Robbie out of his element and reduce Robbie's chances of mounting an effective offense.
