    Top 5 MMA WW?

    Tyron
    Lawler
    Wonderboy
    Maia
    Rory

    I'd put those guys above him.

    Larkin already whooped Lawler's ass and he would do it again.

    He lost to Tumenov who's been cut from the UFC. He's not a top 5 WW. He's good at banging porn stars though.

    He's not top 5. And he already lost his first fight over there in the minor league.

    If Larkin is 5'11" then Daley is 5'7" what a huge height advantage. Larkin used to fight at LHW, that's crazy to think about. If Day wants to continue to fight he needs to consider a move down to LW.

    He wasn't cut, just worth a lot more to ACB so he got a way better offer. As far as striking goes he's competitive with any welterweight.

    Ok, well Larkin lost to Lima, Phillipou, Brad Tavares ... etc. Top 5 WW's don't lose to Costas Phillipou or Brad Tavares.

    Larkin isn't that good. I do credit him though for waking Lawler up. Lit a fire under Robbie's ass when he realized how bad it looks to lose to a guy of Larkin's caliber.

    Since they fought:
    Larkin if 5-6 (45% win%)
    Lawler is 9-2 (82% win%)

    And remember, Lawler got those 9 wins against the cream of the crop, meanwhile Larkin was busy trying and failing to go .500 against lesser competition.

    Lawler (#2 WW)
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Larkin (who's barely Top 10 - and I'd probably put guys like Askren and Cerrone above him)

    Also of note:
    4 of Robbie's last 5 fights have been title fights, the other being the top billed non-title fight. Larkin has been in how many title fights? How many title fights has he won? Heck, he's middle of the card of a second tier organization type fighter (barely a step up from a prelim fighter - and about par with a UFC Fight night opener).

    Well they're both middleweights but I don't think Larkin is top 5 anyways.

    Oh ... so that's why Larkin lost his last fight in Bellator? Stop. Larkin is solid, but he's not top 5 WW in MMA. That's all buddeh.

    Lima is a top WW in MMA.

    Also, Larkin has wins over Robbie + Masvidal already. And not sure I'd pick Wonderboy or Maia to beat him either. Or Woodley.

    Lima is top 5. Not Larkin. Who cares anyway I need Larkin's -300 ass to win tonight.

    Rooting for Daley. I think I would like Larkin more if he didn't have fucked up hairdo's.
