This is probably the most interesting fight on the card in my opinion. It's no secret how good Rory is, but Robbie has looked SCARY good as of late. This could be the best late career resurgance ever seen right next to Vitor.

I'm going to take the wild card and go with Lawler, third round TKO.

I'm not ready for the derailment of Rory yet. He should win this.

I'm curious to see if Robbie actually has improved or if it's a false jump. A few years ago I'd say this wouldn't be close but robbie has been tearing it up so I'm interested.

I voted Robbie, but either one winning wouldn't surprise me. Robbie seems to finally get it, that he has to let go and risk the loss to get the win. He always seemed so hesitant after his fight with Nick. I think Robbie will state his case for a title shot on Rory's chin.

Robbie has such insane power you can never really count him out but I think he gets outclassed here. 2nd round tko for Rory.

Hoping Lawler pulls it off. He can't be hesitant at all.

I'm actually a big fan of both of these guys( I really do support Rory). But, I'm pulling for Lawler since I've been a fan of his forever now. Plus he has looked like a beast since switching over to ATT and dropping back down to 170lbs

With all that said... My head still tells me Rory outclasses him. But, we will see.

I think it'll be a UD for Rory. I don't think he's going to go too crazy. I need to see a Condit rematch though.
