Before you all jump up and start pointing out their different fighting styles, that's not what I'm talking about. In my opinion Lawler is 2-3 in his last 5 fights, and in the one he clearly won he was on the verge of losing. The decision he got over Hendricks was really close, but the one over Condit I thought was pretty bad. But I'm not trying to start a debate about who should have won which fight in this thread. I should also say I like him and his fighting style, and root for him in most of his fights. But Lawler is a Ben Henderson type champ, where he finds a way to win, but he never leaves you feeling he was without a doubt better than his opponent. Of course all that says is he's damn good, as good as the best guys out there.... all respect to guys like him and Bendo... but he's not a dominant champ, and I dont really consider him a favorite against any of the top 5 WW's, always a 50/50 fight. Thompson has as good a chance as anyone.
