I just want to point out that this main card is stacked. I'm excited for this.

Hendricks should win and get that gold he has been wanting, but wouldn't it be something if Lawler actually pulled it off? What a feel good story that would be. A few years ago, I never would have expected Lawler to be coming back and fighting for a UFC title.

i like johnny but i think i like lawler a little more.. i hope these guys keep it standing for most of the fight

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

I think Hendricks should have no trouble outpointing Lawler, and of course he has major finishing power.

It's great that Lawler got this far but I think Hendricks is just better than him.

Hendricks will win, probably even finish Lawler. But I hope Robbie wrecks Hendricks, badly!

IDK, I dont think Hendricks has better hands than Robbie, he just has so much power and hurts so many fighters with it that he doesn't need to be a better boxer.

Lawler has better hand speed and better kicks. Im just not convinced he can make any of that matter.

If he does start to win the striking then all Johny has to do is take Lawler down and either pound him out or sub him and I dont see Lawler being able to stop him.

I know that nothing in mma is 100% guaranteed but Hendricks can take Lawler down at will. Ive watched Lawler fight from day one and the biggest chink in his armor has always been wrestling/sub defense.

People say Diaz had bad TTD back in the day and its bullshit, lawler had worse TDD than Nick and it might be much improved but ain't no way its good enough IMO..

The way I see it going down is both dudes dish out so much pain that this fight shouldn't last long. I think Hendricks will finish Lawler in the first or early second.

Im rooting for lawler so here's hoping im wrong.
