I haven't been this not-hyped for a PPV in a long time...

    I literally didn't know this card was happening until Friday when I saw the weigh-in coverage and thought
    "Oh yeah! Lawler's fighting tomorrow".

    Lawler's a cool dude and a heckuva fighter, but for some reason, I just never get hyped when I hear he's fighting (plus the under-card is very weak).

    I think most of the MMA fandom feels this way about Lawler, but don't want to say it out of fear of being branded a casual or noob.

    Edit: Also, Woodley wins tonight. Decision.

    I like Lawler but this is a shitty card on paper. The 1st 2 fights (on paper) should be on the undercard
