Yeah, a lot of folks are hesitant to get behind Lawler because of his history, but at the same time, if you have been following him over the last few years, the improvements should be obvious.
Yes, it is premature to book him for a #1 contender fight, but he has obviously found a new level of commitment. His fitness, movement, technicality, and attitude are impressive. His move to ATT is telling too.
It is clear to me that the gut who fought Lorenz Larkin is gone, and it is great to see.
