    So apparently Lawler-Hendricks 3 is going down

    I don't think I only speak for myself when I say that there's very little interest in this

    I wonder if enough people started writing about how they didn't want to see this then if the UFC would pull the fight?

    I highly doubt they'd pull the match, unless there was an outrageous twitter tirade. This fight is gonna send either guy to the JDS zone. They could have at least let Johny have another fight or two like Lawler did.

    I dont like Lawler Hendricks 3 either, but its not exactly a dumb match up. Both are very equally matched, and each have one win against each other. Ill-timed, yes but not stupid.

    Silva Diaz is a stupid match. Ill be protesting it by not watching it, and absolutely nothing will change.

    I don't understand why Robbie and Johny can't do one fight each against another opponent and then fight each other if they both win. Robbie-Johny III just seems too stale at the moment.

    It's not the matchup involving either guy that I'd like to see, but it's still a hell of a fight. Can't miss that if you're a big fan of the sport.

    In UFC trilogy fights for the title, the fighter who won the second fight has always won the third even more convincingly.

    Anyways to damn early for me. Would rather watch them fight once more each (not each other) and see where they end up.

    Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it doesn't make sense. They fought twice for a vacant belt. Both won razor close decisions that were debatable. Once more matchup to once and for all have an undisputed champ and then allow other contenders to move forward. If you made Hendricks give Robbie a rematch in his first defense, it is only right to give him a rematch after the close loss.

    Lots of contenders at 170 I would like to see fight for the belt, instead we get to watch these same 2 guys fight for the belt over and over

    its the Instant rematches most people are tired of. Robbie had other fights to earn his rematch, let Hendricks do the same.

    The thing is it's not like I don't want to see a third fight. Just not yet!

    Leave it a while. Do Rory or Lombard v Lawler first

    Absolutely stupid matchmaking by UFC.

    So the logic is every time there's a close title fight they gotta keep rematching, while number one contenders like Rory and Hector fight guys like Saffediene and Burkman.

    To be perfectly honest Hendricks doesn't excite me all that much. His last 3 fights he's been trying to win rounds, and failed 2 out of 3 times. Let's see some fresh matchups... it's always Edgar vs Penn/Maynard/Bendo... Cain vs JDS/Big Foot... Lawler vs Hendricks...

    You've got to be shitting me.


    I'd suggest the matchmakers blow their brains out, but there's obviously nothing to hit.
