    I'd love to see Robbie smash out both Nick and Jorge followed by a late career resurgence but with his best days behind him and him standing around with no killer instinct I think it's doubtful he gets to Masvidal provided the UFC don't make the match for the sake of it.

    Last glimpse of the Ruthless one was in the Askren fight, he tried to murder Askren in there.

    Watching Robbie come back to the UFC and win gold was one of the better parts of being an MMA fan. That's said if he can't figure out how to pull the trigger again it would be best to see him retire. Not sure sure Diaz fight will tell us much about either fighter no matter what happens.

    If Jorge fights Robbie then he should just be taken off the rankings

    Anyone who thinks Jorge would do anything shy of murdering current Robbie Lawler is kidding themselves. I know the guy had the audacity to lose to the best P4P fighter atm, but he's still pretty good.

    Robbie Lawler has been training MMA since he was 16 didn't know that till today. He has an unreal amount of experience.

    Whoever wins this fight should definitely fight Masvidal next. Hoping Nick sends whiny street jesus gatekeeper back to the B leagues.

    Which would be perfect if not for all of the mileage it put on him. His chin doesn't hold up anymore. Chin is the most important attribute for a long career.

    If he beats Diaz and gets revenge that will be a nice way for him to finish his career and call it a day

    Prob fighting at 16, coming up in Iowa in those days you jumped into a gym and was fighting 6mo later. Iowa was a complete wrecking house in mma back in the day, even on the regional scene with the Victory shows. Militich gym use to be where the legendary sparring stories came from in the US based gyms.

    Why even talk about Lawler fighting Jorge? That fight makes zero sense. Nick vs Masvidal is the fight.
