I'd like to watch Hendricks/Nick Diaz.

Lombard probably deserves it over Woodley for now. Lombard/Hendricks could be a solid fight. Doubt Lombard can go 5 good ones if he has too though.

This is the fact everybody seems to be missing out on. Regardless of who they put in there Hendricks is gettin' in them guts. He whooped Lawler even with a serious arm injury, no doubt would have put him to sleep if he was 100% but doesn't matter since he clearly won the fight anyway.

Johny outstruck Robbie in multiple rounds with more diverse strikes and had Robbie hurt from punches that led to the takedown. Saying he won by "LNP" is about as misleading as it gets.
Agreed. Hendricks wins round 5 with or without the takedown. The takedown just put the final nail in the coffin for Lawler. He had Lawler hurt and wobbly.

Now, I would argue Lawler's round wins (3 & 4) were much more clear-cut and significant than Hendricks' (1 & 2), but unfortunately that's not how fights are scored in the UFC.

I have no problem with the decision. Lawler had nothing left to offer in the 5th. Johny did. Granted, Lawler inflicted much more damage on Johny over the course of the fight, it just wasn't enough to earn a decision in a 5-round fight.

Hector Lombard.

I haven't seen someone rag doll an elite fighter like Shields in a long time. He gets grief for not finishing but I don't think anyone wants a piece of that guy (until the "TRT" ban is enforced anyway.)
