Is Robbie the only current UFC champ that you will have to kill him to take the belt away from him?

    dang watching robbie fight as a champ is a treat for us fight fans and for sure his ppv fight is worth every penny.

    it's like watching a modern day chuck liddell giving pure fight entertainment to us fans. we are glad to see him fight and he's the Gangsta champ of the UFC right now

    Well you can't win a decision against him that's for sure.

    Like the other guy said, not if the judges have anything to do with it.

    He has tapped many times and had his chin checked by diaz, what makes you think he is suddenly "to the death"?

    It will take more than a sidekick to the knee to take the belt from RDA

    Robbie is on another level by himself but respect to Weidman. Rockhold beat the shit out of him in the 4th and Weidman wouldn't go out.

    Entertaining fighter, but he lost to Condit. Also was KO'd by Nick and submitted many times before, he worked on the TDD tho.

    no you can out-point him. TBH, hendricks could have won on points.

    He's been in trouble more than Mighty Mouse has. You have to bring a whole lot to the table to beat that guy. Or doesn't he count? Oh and Jon Jones; only relatives and friends of DC think Bones is not the real LHW champ.

    He has come pretty close here in the last couple fights. He seriously can't keep having these super close wars without one decision going against him. I know that to be the champ, you have have to beat the champ and all but at some point, he'll get some judges that think he lost.

    You'll need a M1A2 SEP Military Battle Tank(or a few grams of coke) to take Jon Jones' belt away from him after he smashes Tubby later this year

    The epitome of a warrior. You can see how much he wants to win in the 5th round when he goes all out even when he is half dead. We've seen many superb fighters like Hendricks and Gus just giving up in the end while they are ahead but Robbie will do anything to win. He is my current favorite fighter along with Vitor.

    No, Stephen Thomson or Conor will show that technical striking beats brawling 9/10 times.

    Not hating on Robbie, love watching him fight, and think it's great how he came into his own at the latter part of his career, but I think his time is up.

    Connor's kind of a brawler, tho. He's a patient brawler, and a precise one, too... but there's nothing overly technical about his striking.

    This ^^

    Just leave him inside the cage with a well prepared "Stockton Slap" for a few rounds and that's it.

    In no way is Conor a brawler, what he does is incredibly technical.
