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?
