    GSP wins 50-45, but with a bruised and beat up face. You know how it is

    Likely Gsp wrestles him to death but if Robbie’s tdd holds up I think he ko’s him

    I think Lawler that fought Hendricks and Rory beats GSP. Pre USADA.

    And maybe even by TKO, but I think by decision.

    I think you guys are trippin.

    Lawler had the TDD to win
     
  10. GSP, Robbie is one of the most overrated champs of all time.

    Lawler fought some other guy during that time frame

    I cant even remember his name but he was a promising top 10 fighter

    Lawler had a flawless victory and headkick KO. And homeboy he fought never really came back from it

    As others said, matchup favors GSP.

    To bad he'll never cement himself as GOAT by his docking the A. Silva super match and present WW boss Woodley.

    Lawler stuffs most of the takedowns and TKOs GSP in the 4th

    Yeah he kind of is. The only title fight he ever had that I thought he won was the one with Rory. I thought he should have lost both fights to Hendricks and to Condit. He's got something the judges like though.

    Depends what kind of GSP we get, the one that faced Hendricks or earlier may get knocked out.

    Robbie wouldve ko gsp back when he “beat” hendricks, his tdd is one of the best in the sport

    GSP in a close fight.

    You guys need to remember that Robbie's TDD was on point during that period of time, and even to this day his TDD is great. Rory got real deep on a double during the second round, and Lawler sprawled that shit and proceeded to pound him until Rory gave up on it.

    Everyone thinks they have tdd before fighting gsp. Just ask Koscheck, Fitch, Hendricks, Hughes, Sherk, BJ Penn, Frank Trigg, Bisping.
