Yea I know, and perhaps you are right but I'd still like to think that if Kos makes this mainly a boxingmatch he gets knocked out. Lawler has looked really bad lately tho.

I still think Kos takes the safe route against such a heavy handed guy & just wrestles him all fight.

If this fight is contested standing up both fighters got a punchers chance if Koscheck using his wrestling which I think he will he wins easy.

Kos is obviously the much better fighter, but I'm going with Robbie cuz I would very much like to see Kos laid out on the canvas.

I can't believe Diaz knocked out Robbie before too.

Im going with RUTHLESS on this one. Im a huge fan of all things MFS since '02. But the big factor here is how will Robbie's power look now that hes back at 170? I mean, he was getting outwrestled by bigger MWs. I think he can hold Kos off. And if Matt Hughes (who I <3) can out strike Kos for 4:57 then Robbie will KO him in that time period.

Pretty much this. I think Lawler's stand up is pretty ehhhh like I said, but his knock out power is legit. He can also be explosive when he brings his A game. It shows that a guy with average at best stand up can be successful against better strikers consistently if he has power and explosiveness.

Koscheck could potentially be competitive in the stand up, but he shouldn't take the risk.

At this point in their respective careers, I see Koscheck as the more overall rounded fighter. I see him dictating the pace, grinding and mixing up some takedowns for a UD win.

Lawler should not be overlooked though, he has hands made of steel, they hit... you go out.

I am actually pretty excited for this fight. The reason is Koscheck is confident in his striking.. He's a decent striker, with good power, but he needs to mix up his strikes better.
I see this fight being stopped maybe in the 2nd. Koscheck is going to push the pace heavy in the first, using dirty boxing and throwing in TDs here and there, having good GNP. in the 2nd Lawler will be gassing I believe and will be put on his back and ppounded out

It would be awesome if Robbie came back in great shape and ready, Im sure he understands that a win gets him back in the game, a loss and he could very well get cut if he is making much money, maybe? My head tells me Kos will find a way to win this..My heart says Robbie and my head says kos, this is kind of a hard one to be honest............Koscheck by decision.

Totally rooting for Robbie here. But takedowns are his weakness and if Douschehead, I mean Dumbass, I mean Koscheck was smart he'd try to use the same tactics as he did in his fight against Daley.

Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

This is such a mis-match... Lawler has looked like crap for the last 2 years. Is he even ranked in the top 50 WW??? I don't understand this fight at all. I know Dana loves taking care of his boys, but damn don't spoon feed Kos!!!!!
