I think it'd be fairly competitive until it hit the ground,

Weidman would make Lawler look like a child on the ground

lol. why do ppl want to see Weidman vs welterweights? If anything he should go to 205 during his title reign like AS did. Weidman vs Rumble, Cormier, Gus, Glover etc would be interesting to see plus a lot of ppl say he's a big guy in person.

I'd be rooting for Lawler to knock Weidman's head off but I just don't see it happening.

This, if Weidman is going to any other weight class it's up to LHW. His reaction to a potential fight with GSP was very telling to me.

Looking back, Robbie was hot and cold at Middleweight, but he really is dangerous to a grappling based fighter, since he's good at getting back to his feet and he has quality takedown defense. Shields is really the only one to make easy work of him, but I doubt the same would have happened in a rematch. Jacare subbed Lawler, but it took rounds and Lawler nearly had him finished in the first.

Does that makes Weidman the new GOAT? No, he defeated an idiot-Clown Silva and then an injured leg Silva. So, he may be tested against Machida, Jacaré, Belfort and Rockhold, I am pretty sure these fellows would give him a fuc*** hard time with no clowning. MW has a lot of surprises and new scnenarios for us in next 18 months.
try to fit a few more excuses in that paragraph

Weidman> Silva> Vitor>Rockhold>Jacare>Kennedy>Lawler

So I think Weidman destroys Lawler, I don't think it would be competitive
