The UFC took way too long getting Alvarez, like 5 years too long.

Alvarez is a lot like Edgar with power, killer instinct and a better chin. Although he can be dropped I dont see his chin as a weakness.

If Cowboy can get his kicks going he might be able to win but the majority of me feels Alvarez is just too fast and hits too hard, sooner or later he'll hurt cowboy and pounce.

Cerrone needs to use his range and keep him on the outside, stay out of the hallway and time a td attempt with a knee. Im just not convinced he can get out of the way in exchanges, Alvarez is just too quick.

Should be a hell of a fight. Too bad Alvarez is injury prone he'll probably blow his ACL in training camp and be out for a year, lol.

Can't help but think after all the drama it took for the UFC to get him, wouldn't it be at least a little bit funny if Cerrone finishes him.

Cerrone is good enough to beat him for sure. But I think getting choked out in two minutes by Benson took some of his soul and he just can't make the step in big fights. So if I was a gambling man I'd go Eddie.

This is awesome. Fight should have happened 2 years ago though, but who cares, at least we're getting to see it now!

I think Cerrone will win, Eddie gets rocked and dropped all the time, if that happens at any point against someone with such killer instinct as Cerrone it's over.

If he fights smart and doesn't fall for Lawlers tricks(which he knows much better now after having fought him) then he should win this one easily.

Lawler punches hard and is always a dangerous opponent but he has nothing that gives him an advantage over Hendricks as we saw in their first fight... He can't outwrestle him and he can't even out brawl him...


You can't be serious. Robbie was laughing to his face the whole fight until that last minute takedown.

Lawler might have been laughing but he still wasn't able to do enough to win...

You guys don't seem to be getting the point... If Hendricks stands there and lets Lawler punch him again yes Lawler has a chance... If Hendricks fights a little smarter then the first time the only thing Lawler has is a punchers chance...

What makes you think Hendrix can fight smarter? You talk as if Hendricks can easily step up his game and avoid Lawlers strikes. Im pretty confident that if he was capable of doing that, he would have. To suggest he fought dumb is not what I saw. All I saw was Hendrix giving everything against a very tough opponent.

Are you aware that Lawlers career TDD percentage is the same as Hendricks? So the idea that Hendricks can stop fighting silly and fall back to his wrestling is naive.

Both fighters get full credit from me. It was possibly the best WW title fight ive ever seen.
