Wow, really? This is a fun fight. Hard for me to root for a guy like TJ after hearing him say some of the asinine things he said on TUF. But still.. I can't deny it's a really fun fight.

Who the hell is TJ?
It should be interesting to see Lawrence at 145, but it's weird that Black House was okay with it considering that Aldo is in the same weight class.

I really enjoy watching this kid fight. He has such a traditional martial arts stance with his arms down ready to launch an aerial assault with his kicks. He should fight against MacDessi.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

This is a very fun fight. Can't see this being boring for a second. Think Justin gets the TKO here!

On the fence about this fight. I just haven't been as impressed with Lawrence as other people have. His fight against Cofer was close up until that knock out. Lawrence got tagged many times through out the fight and was often behind on the significant strikes landed card. I guess in terms of damage, he was winning and was ahead on the score cards probably, and of course the strikes landed card doesn't matter considering he got a nice knock out win in the third round, but still.. I'm not sold yet and I've been careful about not following hype too soon lately.

Who knows though, maybe he will look better at his natural weight class.

Like Lawrence, don't really like Holloway so I hope he wins.

That KO of Cofer was siiiick.

Max Holloway if he avoids the takedowns.

I like Holloway in this fight. I think Lawrence might dominate the first round or 2 but Holloway will get a late TKO finish.
