    Knew he would get KOd early. I didnt think Hobbie was the guy who was gonna buy into his own hype but i think he did.

    Dude gets hit way too much, one time or another this would happen.

    Lawler isn't a fresh fighter, this can happen in his next fight too. I mean, getting hit by Hendricks for 10 rounds, then Rory and Condit will wreck you and it will be hard for come back.

    he got feinted and was more worried about the takedown. It had nothing to do with anything lawler thought or didnt think,he got tricked. Bamboozled if you will.

    He got blasted, nothing to do with him buying into his hype.

    He fell for the feint and ate the fuckin bomb behind it.

    I think he stopped buying into something, actually.

    Implying Robbie Lawler of all people "bought into his own hype" is straight retarded.

    He's a quite, humble, hardworking beast of a man who's been around forever. His defenses have been tough as hell

    The way that dude in Lawler's crew was smiling during the walkins just made it seem like something like this was bound to happen for sure.

    I don't think so. He treated Woodley like the threat he is. Robbie was very measured and was wary of the TD and Woodley's power.

    He just read Tyron wrong on a exchange and the fight was pretty much over from that one mistake. It's cliche but MMA is a game of inches.

    He got hit in the chin by a large man. Hard. That's all. Could have happened in his prime...oh wait. It did. He is a good fighter who is in the twilight of his career and it's been a great one
