Much like the GSP fight I think MacDonald should be able to get the fight to the ground and win it. I don`t see Lawler possibly winning a decision but I do think Lawler has a fair shot of knocking MacDonald out. I think MacDonald may also be able to finish Lawler but it`ll be with ground and pound either pounding him till hes defenseless or to where he can lock up an easy submission.

Rory should win but he got dropped by Guyman so his chin is pretty suspect so if Lawler lands one clean one, he'll go down.

Rory is the better fighter but Lawler showed vs Kos that no matter how badly his opponent wants to just hold him down he just needs to defend one TD and he can turn the lights out.

I'll be pulling for Rory here cos I want him to get the Condit Rematch. That being said, I think Lawlor certainly has the ability to get the upset.

Im going Rory UD

I dont think he's tasted the kind of leather Lawler can throw but I think he's got a shot at winning, most likely by decision.

Someone could go sideways real quick in this one so IDK..

If Lawler is in shape, I can see him landing at least a few solid shots, you never know with Lawler sometimes he'll rush in like Silva and other times he uses his boxing and looks sharp.

Robbie's TDD has improved but its not like MacDonald has poor stand up, I can see this fight going to either guy but Ill take Lawler.

Lawler is a shitty version of Ellenberger. Not to mention he folds when a guy puts him on his back and does damage. As I said I can see Robbie winning but I don't get how so many people are picking him other than just blind dislike of Rory.

Hmmm, I wonder why you feel this way? You aren't a Rory fan are you?

Rory is the better fighter. But Lawler can put anyone out. I could see Rory getting "cocky" and trying to display his kicks and striking....and getting rocked. Even in wrestling I think ROry is overrated. He has good wrestling, not great. He is a strong strong dude, but his technique is meh.

I expect Rory to win, as he has better cardio and a better all around game for sure. But I wouldn't like much of anyone's chances in a stand up battle with Robbie. Rory is the rightful big favorite. But Lawler is a live dog for sure.

If he were to KO Rory, what does everyone think about where he is? Is it straight title shot? Or a fight against Brown/Condit winner for it?

The UFC likely wont give Rory the title shot if he wins so I'd be very surprised if they gave Lawlor it. who ever wins most probably gets the winner of Condit/Brown maybe?
