I felt like Robbie was holding back… But then didn't bring it hard like he could have. Or maybe he was tired? What do you think?

(As a side note, Derek Brunson did a full play-by-play of the Hendricks v Lawler fight. If you were rushing home or missed any part of that, he would have been an absolute JOY to be following.)
Man this fight is awesome!! Can't say I'm missing GSP at the moment! @ufc
