The hair vs the dome = Lawlor is getting wrestle****ed and probably TKO'd.

Robbie is the last of the MFS boys so I have to stay loyal. If kos comes out looking for a ko or if Robbie can stuff a couple of takedowns (12 years wrestling with Matt Hughes has to count for something) then Koscheck goes to sleep.

Kos by wrestling. If he lets his ego win and he stands...he gets Koed but I doubt he's dumb enough. This fight will look like the Daley fight.

I don't know about that, Lawler has power but he looked abysmal against Kennedy and Larkin. I think he's done.

Lawler has overrated stand up. Don't let his win over Manhoef fool you. It was a fight he was getting dominated in, but Manhoef got a little overzealous. Lawler has made his stand up look better than it is because of his ridiculous power. He was getting out struck by Scott Smith in both of their fights for the most part. Lawler just knows how to finish. He struggled standing against Babalu and lost their fight by decision. I don't expect him to make many waves in the UFC this time around.

Koscheck could probably remain competitive on the feet if he can avoid Lawler's power. He should probably play it safe though and take this fight to the ground. I think Lawler needs to finish if he wants to win. I don't think he has the tools to outpoint. He looks terrible against guys he fails to knock out.

Kos has decent standup. Robbies technique may look sloppy and more of a brawling style.. But Kos wouldn't be smart to stand and trade with him.

He needs to use his wrestling... Out of 19 of Robbies wins, 16 of those are knockouts. MMA math or not those kind of numbers don't lie.. Robbies hands are bricks.

As much as I want Lawler to knock Kos unconscious, Kos is simply a better fighter with a better skillset. If Lawler connects though he can drop almost anyone. I'm hoping that happens.
