    Lawler literally had to go through the gauntlet in the past 2-3 years. Late 2013 he had a war with Rory, in 2014 he had wars with Hendricks twice, he took massive damage in both of these fights, in 2015 he had a foty candidate against Rory in a brutal rematch, and by the time he got to Condit, you could tell he was already slipping. Every WW is going to be gunning for Woodley, I don't really give him much credit for stopping a shot to pieces Lawler.

    It was embarassing. Somebody should remove Lawler from the p4p rankings asap!! The guy fell down from the first punch thrown in the fight.
    I feel bad for those who bought into his hype train. He has been in some close fights, and many believe he's a soul taker or a badass who cannot be stopped.
    Well eat your crow.

    Woodley is one of the strongest punchers in the division if not the strongest. I will not rush to judgement on Lawler's chin after one KO. If his chin is indeed cracked only time will tell.

    At no point in Lawler's career does he survive that right hand and the strikes that followed.

    He got blasted. Reminded me of Jimmo annihilating Perosh.

    We get it every time someone loses they were never as good as we all said they were. Its not like this is mma where anything can happen on any given night. Nope.. every fighter sucks.

    His chin is fine. He is not "shot" or anything. He's just always been a mediocre fighter who got gifted some decisions.

    Woodley's hit was a geniuine KO destructor punch.

    Stop making excuses. He got caught by an explosive and athletic Welterweight.

    Retire or LW. Those are the only logical moves at this point. I mean, he lost guys. Good fighters never do that

    He's been rocked by all his championship opponents, and he's not consistently aggressive enough to be called ultra aggressive. He's usually pretty passive for a lot of the time and only goes hard in bursts or at certain times.

    I'm amazed how many people feel Robbie is shot, he could even be, but he was hit by a huge shot, and what's more his hands were in no way protecting him (down). If that shot connects, anybody is going out, so IMO it had nothing to do with his career or too many hard fights etc. That being said, I actually thought Woodley lost the Gastellum fight and seemed somewhat shy to take a shot, but that's just an opinion.

    Nope, this is Sherdog, winning is evrything, a loser is nothing and so is anyone who supports one.

    As far as Lawler goes I think its much too early, that looked like a pretty overfull punch to me and I'd need to him a lot more before I label him as "shot".

    Defense is a thing. I like Lawler, and anything can happen in a fight, but "avoiding bombs" is a skill that defines great fighters.
