    I don't think Thompson is a clean-out-the-division kind of guy, but I do see him with a good chance against Lawler. Lawler seems very typical for an MMA fighter, to be honest, in terms of his style. He likes to stand in front of guys and trade punches. He doesn't have tremendous range. He wouldn't bring the fight to the ground, since he never does.
    I don't dislike Lawler, but I find his style very boring. I feel like his primary assets are his hard punches, his heart, and his hard, polished iron head. I would imagine that Thompson-Lawler would look more or less like Thompson-Hendricks.

    It's going to look like wonderboy-ellenberger all over again.

    I can't find any reason why Lawler won't end up seeing stars. Wonderboy's style is perfect for counterstriking aggressive sluggers.

    Lawler boring?

    Robbie Lawler? Boring?

    Whatever it is you are smoking I suggest you stop immediately.
