This is why I don't follow hype as fast as others seem too. I'm sure Lawrence will continue to improve, but it seems like fans put way too much stock into fighters way too early in their careers. Did one fight on the ultimate fighter against a relatively unknown opponent sway peoples opinions that much on Lawrence? So many promising fighters have come around through out the years looking like beasts only to have their hype train come crashing down a few fights later. That's why I'm not quick to jump on band wagons.
You know, unless someones name is Glover Teixeira. =P
That being said, I'm sure this will be a good learning experience for Lawrence and his place should still be secure in the UFC. He has plenty of time to improve. Now, let's wait for the next prospect to burst onto the scene with one impressive win and then have fans put a lot of stock on them. It seems to be an endless cycle.
