    "I think Robbie Lawler is the most dangerous fighter in UFC welterweight division. There are a lot of great fighters at welterweight for sure, but I think Lawler is the most dangerous among them all. But the same time I think he would be a relatively easy opponent for me. If you look at Lawler's skills, you won't be able to say that he has some extraordinary techniques in any aspect of MMA. He is tough. He has a fighter's spirit and patience. But his fighting style is simply to move straight at you and attack. So you can definitely work with such an opponent. He can be defeated."

    people underestimate Lawler's striking the guy has crazy fast hands there's a reason why he lands every time he throws and his punches come with a lot of power behind it

    his overall tdd and grappling defense is also top notch it has to be against some of the top WW's

    Tumerov vs Lawler for the title 2017. If Lawler can last that long.

    Robbie's days are numbered. I don't think he'll hold onto the belt much longer. He's getting hurt basically every fight and I think if he fights Wonderboy next, he'll lose.

    I see Tumenov dominating for 4 rounds, but Robbie decides to go wild in the fifth swinging at air and looking angry whilst only landing 20% of his shots.

    Robbie proceeds to win by split decision.

    Wonderboy should not get the next shot, no way. Great performance this past weekend but that moves him in to a #1 contender bout not a TS

    wqell Albert is right just not about Lawler. Robbie is an amazing striker with great kicks and great boxing. The one thing Robbie has learned over the years is patience he waits to atttack and when he does he is fucking deadly. Albert would give Robbie an unreal fight. dont sleep on Albert he is awesome.

    So who do you think deserves to fight for the TS more than WB? Someone who beat an overweight Gastelum?

    He doesn't have enough top notch wins, Thompson is close but i think he should have to beat someone else other than just Hendricks. Condit deserves a rematch like Rua did against Machida back in the day. Woodley has been on deck for awhile, and although i think he's a bit overrated he's done more to deserve a shot. I'd like to see Condit fight for the title again to right an obvious wrong, then i'd like to see Thompson fight Woodley for the next shot. In the meanwhile McDonald is fighting Lombard and whoever wins that should be fighting for the next title shot. It's a stacked division it's pretty ridiculous to suggest only one guy deserves a shot right now. Thompson wouldn't be horribly undeserving but he simply hasn't fought enough of the top guys.

    I don't love Woodley either but he has a way better resume than WB, guy has 1 top 10 win, let him fight Maia, if he wins that (which he wont) then maybe he can get a shot I mean C'mon before this weekend his best win was who, Jake Ellenberger? GTFO

    That's what Robbie prefers to do.

    This guy needs to understand that Robbie preferring to do one thing doesn't mean he is incapable of doing others. He is great coming forward. He's also great cutting off the Octagon. He's spectacular at in-fighting. He's a good grappler.

    Saying Robbie "simply" moves straight at his opponent is like saying Werdum simply wants to grab your neck and squeeze. I mean, who couldn't defend against that one thing, eh?
