    I love this fight, such an underrated match-up.

    Everyone and their mother thought that Rory was some sort of super fighter who would take Robbie down and beat him up or submit him. Robbie showed his newly advanced skills, and much more calculated approach than his earlier days. Robbie won a slow first round and then beat the fuck out of Rory in the third.

    You know what's ironic? Robbie actually busted up Rory's nose in this fight.

    Foreshadowing or what?

    It was definitely a badass fight. I don't know anyone who didn't enjoy it. The fight was a bloodbath. Who has been refusing to talk to you about it? Lol

    It was a very good fight too, but people will always mention the 2nd fight when they talk about them.
    When you search Lawler Mcdonald this is the 1st gif that appears.

    I thought it was a great fight. I was sure Robbie was going to lose, but he really impressed me.

    was a great fight. i picked robbie to beat him and got to watch my fight with one of my best friends and he was backing rory. i remember my friend scored the fight for rory and was telling me how rory could have won rounds 1 and 2.

    I definitely was screaming obscenities at the TV when Lawler dropped him in the first fight. Super close fight iirc, was worried about the decision cuz of Rory's takedowns but I jumped and shouted in joy when the cards were read

    Because MacDonald/Lawler II was way better. Great fight, though. Loved seeing Robbie halt Rory's hype train at the time.

    The Rory/Hendricks wars that Robbie had certainly had something to do with Woodley sleeping Robbie in like 1 punch.

    Bloodbath? You sure you're not thinking of their more famous second fight?

    Rory definitely won the second round, but if anyone on planet earth claimed he won the third round, I'd have to just not talk to them any further.

    Because the 2nd fight overshadows it

    Kind of like ww1 and ww2

    ww1 was rough

    ww2 had atom bombs

    It was violent and barbaric. It put a black eye on the sport and only encourages it to be banned
