Lawler's fought for 13 years and is 7 years older than Rory. He started his pro career at 18 and is just now reaching his best. You know what Lawler was doing 7 years ago? Losing to Jason Miller.

When Rory's 31, if he stays in the game, he will be a fucking killer and will no doubt be better than Lawler. Much better. Hell, he gave him a competitive fight now.

I get what you're saying but it's a pretty ridiculously superficial analysis and if anything, further investigation into what you said produces more evidence supporting the opposite conclusion.

You don't know that.
There are way more fighters who have burned out young than have come back and put a title run together, especially in a deep division. People should just let Rory fight and stop assuming he's going to be some great powerful force. Maybe he will be, but you can talk about it in 5 years, no need to chirp on and on now about what a killer he's going to be.
