I can see either of these men potentially beating Hendricks. Brown would be more susceptible to being KO'd though

I don't really even have a justification for it. I full recognize he's exciting to watch...it just every time I see him or hear him talk..it just causes instant disdain.

I think every fan just has at least one fighter they can not stand for no real good reason and Matt Brown is that person to me.

I wont be shocked I believe he will win. My money is on Brown. All the shertards on Lawler tells me Brown is a good bet

If Brown wins, it will most likely be a decision and look like this.

A fine point... Lawler was battered bad in that fight. but pressure? pretty loose term. and Lawler is now with a new team since his resurgence.

Fair enough. I try to steer clear about issues regarding a guys personality unless they are like a serious criminal... but I do very much dislike Mayhem Miller.

I havent seen any brown interviews. Hear he's a dick in some ways but really don't care at the moment.

Lawler has greatly improved since that fight

We might as well bring up Brown getting submitted 3 times in a row and the fact that he was 12-11 not too long ago

I'm definitely not a fan, he talks too much without the wins to back it up. He went on for ages about how he'd beat the champ and the first time in his career he has the opportunity to beat a top guy, he gets injured and backs out of the fight.

Now he has a second opportunity and he misses weight.

He's a really good fighter, he puts on a show and leaves it all in the octagon, but his talk should match his accomplishments.

The Larkin fight was only a year after Brown was last submitted so I will give you that but how many fighters has Robbie fought that since then that have brought a striking intensity in terms of combos and pressure that Brown brings or Larkin brought?

Zero. Ellenburger, Hendricks, and MacDonald fought very conservative.

matt brown has a good chance if the fight stays standing. he gets submitted way too much. on the feet is his best shot at winning but even still i think he's the underdog. still rooting for him though.
