Watch what one legged Lawler could acccomplish against a much more skilled striker and you may have a clue about a possible way to his victory. This is MMA, don't forget.

What is the meaning of this statement, anyway? Of course it is a hard task, yet we are blessed with some memorable KO moments in MMA. Hey, UFC even pay extra money for those moments. Wanna explain how hard is to someone to lock the perfect armbar also?

Rory is a mid level fighter at this moment? Ok...

According to your logic, Anderson Silva and JDS shouldn't be in the top 10, then. It shows how much you understand about ranking a fighter.

Really? So explain how Hendricks himself tags people to canvas if it's so easy to avoid a big punch? Or how pro fighters got punched unconscious by the sorts of Roy Nelson, or Pat Barry, or a mile away Hendo?
Maybe you can pay a visit to those gyms and explain those combatants how easy it is to avoid punches to the face. Maybe they can pay you money for this priceless info.

You could emulate GSP and call for your own press conference and announce what you are planning to do about that...we are anxious.

Hendricks is so damn annoying, and Robbie is so badass awesome. I hope Robbie picks up the belt.

Ok guys, Rabakill is entitled to an opinion, just like everyone else. No amount of dissecting every sentence of his post and trying to show him how wrong you think he is, is going to change it.

On paper it seems like a good fight. Robbie does have a punchers chance and a brawl is what he wants.

Lawler and Hendricks both have enough KO power to drop the other, I cant say who's going to land a big shot first but I almost expect someone to get KO'd in the first round.

I think Hendricks is possibly the only guy that punches harder than Lawler in the division. Im rooting for Lawler but I expect Hendricks to win.

I cant see how this fight is boring either way.
