    A lot of people were skeptical about RDA's chances in the WW division.
    How do you feel about it after his 3 successful fights? What´s the secret for his success in the WW division in your opinion?

    He just can’t get hit in the chin. Otherwise he wins. He should circle out to pressure better and he is easily goat contention. I’m a true believer in his guy

    This, but also those were all pretty favorable matchups. RDA has proven me wrong before and I'd love to see him win, but Covington is a bad matchup for him. I think Lawler would do better vs Colby than vs RDA, just due to styles.

    He's a pretty skilled fighter all around. Easily one of the best to ever do it imho.

    Excellent cardio helps. He didn't even slow down after that 50 punch combo against Lawler. Guy is a stud.

    Not having to drain the shit of himself + working super hard + talented
    Neil Magny just beat comfortably Carlos Condit? How he eventually sucks? Saffiedine and Lawler have yet to fight after facing RDA.

    That's something just an uneducated fool would say

    What I think? Well rounded, Lawler is not what he used to be

    He's a beast. I love his chances against Tyrone, that said Coby is like Tyron on roids.


    Great fight !

    Why has no one mentioned the fucking leg kicks yet?

    They were damn near his biggest weapon in every fight he’s had at WW, cardio aside

    Not an unreasonable suggestion given his physique and frankly obscene cardio....
