    Wow, Robbie needs a top 5 fighter now. What a haad kick.

  2. KIDD433 says:

    He should get a title shot seeing that Rory and Jake didn’t show up to earn a title shot.

  3. Thesire says:

    Diaz v lawyer 2!

  4. Dddddddd says:

    I instantly thought Lawler$Diaz 2. Lawler is fast but I don’t think he can transition between wrestling and striking well enough at the top of the division.

  5. Joustwillam says:

    Lawler/Mcdonald or Lawler/Diaz 2

  6. Confucius says:

    He’s looked good but don’t deserve a title shot or a contender fight after two bouts in the UFC. As good as he’s looked he shows potential if he keeps it going. Koshcheck isn’t an easy guy to put away but he’s at the end of his career. Volkner is tough as hell but nowhere near a top ten fighter. Let lawler have a few more fights then talk top 5 fight.
