Alright, so to save me from being murdered. Their first fight was amazing, and I will even say that the second fight looked promising. Why wouldn't it? Here's the thing though, they stood toe to toe with each other and traded the biggest punches and knees and elbows ever in a WW fight. (embellishing, but stay with me) In the time between those fights and getting ready for their next fight, they got in each other's heads. They both realized how much time that first fight took off their careers and lives. They both didn't want to repeat it. They walked in with no interest in repeating the first barn-burner Hendricks chose to try the wrestler style. Stay on top, win the round. Avoid a stand-up fight with Lawler. That first fight was too close and he ran the risk of being KO'd. Lawler decided that his only chance of winning especially as the challenger was to finish him and finish him early. Therefore he blitzed Johny in the first rd. He gassed and he broke, leading him to be a zombie for rds 2 n 3. In 4 and 5, Lawler didn't look much better but he won by the Sanchez effect. Coast 4 and 1/2 minutes, explode for the last thirty. Secure round in lazy judges eyes. Their third fight will be exactly the same. Trust me.
