Thumbs up Lawler

Well as I've said before, Lawler also has underrated wrestling ability, so if he can get that on Manhoef, it could be a totally different match!

The MFS may be obsolete though. We will have to see how if works against a guy like Melvin.

Melvin is a bigger, stronger, faster striker than Lawler. You beat him by having great wrestling or subs. I'm sure Lawler's are better than Melvins but not better enough to make a difference. Manhoef is going to smash Lawler, this isn't going to be close.

Both have meh chins and huge power but Melvin has insane combinations and hand speed. Most likely Melvin will destroy Lawler but Robbie has a shot (especially if he mixes it up with wrestling ... which I doubt he will).

Thumbs up Doubt he will

Yeah Lawler has had a tendency to just use his striking if it will suite him, but this match might force him to use his wrestling!
