Seen that even in the Rory fight. When Rory stepped in and went to the body and didn't just stand there or back up Robbie looked lost and out of it.

The more I watch thar Rory fight the more I wonder wtf Rorys corner planned. It was literally the perfect gameplan for Lawler, stand there and try to stop him with a jab backpedal when he comes forward.

The part that boggled my mind is when Rory got on top and did nothing and by nothing I mean nothing, he didn't work for position or even throw little baby love taps, I mean he did nothing.

Once he gets top control on the ground he doesnt do anything from there where Diaz could wrap you up in a submission.
Except Diaz defense involves hoping his opponent breaks his hand on his face. Nick has been rocked and hurt many times so I can't imagine Henricks having provlems finishing him.

Here is a solid article from Jack Slack about it:

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...illed-the-king

While it is about Hendricks/GSP, he actually talks about Rory vs Lawler. The thing both fights had in common was it was the first time GSP and Rory ever fought traditional boxing style southpaws. Jack even goes into how Diaz, while a southpaw, is not a traditional boxing style one. The main point to take from it:

Quote:
A traditional southpaw barely jabs at all, his lead hand exists entirely to eliminate the orthodox boxer's jab. This makes everything the orthodox fighter usually does nearly worthless. He cannot lead with his jab anymore so he must throw his rear hand, which is further away, slower and unnatural to him.

Meanwhile, the southpaw has likely always been sparring and fighting against orthodox fighters; there are just so many more of them. He is used to using his lead hand to check and throwing his rear hand as a lead.

In both the main event and the MacDonald vs. Lawler bout, we were treated to these southpaw versus orthodox matchups. Both MacDonald and St-Pierre have previously demonstrated brilliant, fight-changing jabs, and at UFC 167, neither could get his jab going with any consistency.
The problem for Rory was he was losing the hand fight so Robbie got to pick and choose the exchanges.

Very good write up as always from jack slack. My issue is that Lawler didn't get to pick and choose. Rory let him, Rory showed flashes of good timing and rear straights as well as good front kicks. He just refused to keep doing it. It seemed as if his corner was telling him you can't stand with this guy if you do you'll get stopped and it almost happened.

Also to the point of when Rory got it to the ground, I mentioned it in another thread that he did nothing and I felt it for was the same reason. That his corner was telling him don't be on the feet so he was nervous about opening up and letting Lawler get to his feet.

Rory won a fair amount of the exchanges in the second round he timed Robbie with some good elbows over the top and landed well to the body and then just stopped. Lawer never did anything to counter it.

Oh god. The man hasn't been KO'd/TKO'd in 9 years. Yet his chin is iffy. And he isn't that good of a striker, yet most are afraid to stand with him. He KO'd Amogov and Manhoef. He got the better of ROry standing.

Get out of here with that. Goofiest post of the day, that was quickly noted when that gif was posted.

Oh god again. Lawler has looked vulnerable and KO'd. 9 years ago. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh Hendricks took those devastating head kicks of GSP! Hendricks survived that finishing monster!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

I never said he has a bad chin but it isn't great. Not that you need a bad chin for Hendricks to KO you Mr Strawman. Manhoef beat the **** out of Robbie and only lost because he has a glass jaw. That fight proves everything I said as being factual anyways. It is nice to see you are ignoring the way Babalu tore him up standing again proving my point and that the exact same thing happened when Rory pressed forward.

Yep same scenario with Chuck vs Rashad. Overhand always wins, distance + quickness. Manhoef should have just continued with the leg kicks. Those were wicked! No way Robbie would have been able to walk after a few more of those.

Hendricks would just resort to lay and pray once Lawler started to out-strike him. You know, like he did against Condit.
