Brown has been hurt by body shots twice.

By Mein and Silva, he recovered both times and actually began performing better after being hurt.

Somehow though the train of thought becomes "Brown will lose by body shots!!"

It's become the new "Rampage via left hook KO1!!" or "Jones via hellbows!!1"
Twice in his last three fights is definitely enough to put a target there. If you don't think Robbies gonna be looking to land huge body shots, your a fool.

On that same token, do you not expect Brown to have been working on this?

You would be a fool to think not, so welcome to the fool club, bia.

I'm sure he has been working on it since the Mein fight, yet Silva still put a hurtin on his body. I just think Ruthless' striking is too crafty for Brown and Brown leaves himself open too much

+300 is a pretty fair line imo. I think Lawler is gonna wreck him though.

Agreed of course. Just saying Lawler's new camp has changed him a ton and hes a different fighter now. I hope this translates him to not being a pushover with his bjj defense anymore.

I agree, I think it already has. Lawler's butterfly guard was looking legit in the Hendricks fight. I think the drop to 170 also helped a lot in the grappling department.

I think he's the favorite here I'm just saying I also feel it's a lot closer than people think.
