    Joe Rogan said on his podcast he recorded a promo for McDonald vs Wonnderboy. That fight makes no sense Wonderboy just beat the guy that beat Lawler why would he not get the title shot?

    Woodley should get the damn shot man. He has been a team player since day one and beat everyone he has fought for ages. Give this man his shot.

    Just shut the fuck up. No offense.

    Why would they protect Lawler and why the hell do you think they are protecting Lawler ? He is fighting against top contenders consistently and I'm sure Wonderboy will get his TS after max one more win,like everyone else

    Rick Story beat the guy who beat Lawler why doesn't he get the title shot? And tons of more similar MMath examples. Just doesn't work like that

    I think they're just waiting to receive confirmation from GSP before they announce Robbie's next fight.

    Lol Lawler doesn't need protected. I'm not saying he'd beat Wonderboy but the guy ain't afraid of anyone. The only time i've seen him fight safely was when he landed a couple takedowns on Chris Lytle. Other than that he's game

    I dunno if GSP wants the title. The UFC probably won't want him fighting for it if he's not sticking around.

    Yeah the UFC is protecting Robbie from a fighter who still hasn't proven he can go to war yet. Seems legit.

    He has 2 wins and one was a split decision, plus he freezes in big fights, he wouldn't take a short notice fight against Lombard and instead of getting one more fight and making sure he got the shot he has chosen to sit and cry about it and alienate himsef from the company and the fans.

    Dana said after the Lawler/MacDonald fight that guys were gonna have to go through Rory to get to Robbie, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

    He wouldn't fight a teammate unless it was for a belt. A teammate who subsequently was popped for steroids was he not?

    Lawler is just taking a break. He's fought a lot right after another and all of them have been wars.

    Lawler does not need any kind of protection. A true warrior.

    Lawler doesn't need protection from the welterweight division, the welterweight division needs protection from Lawler
