    Just a dream/fantasy match up I thought up of & want to throw out there, which could happen (maybe @ catch weight?) but highly unlikely.

    2 of the most aggressive & powerful strikers for their respective division, both are veterans of the sport that have found a career resurgence as of recently.

    Both guys are killers that put on a show & I would love to see these guys go at it before considering retirement.

    We've already seen how top tier MW fare against top tier WW (Ellenberger vs Marquardt or Vitor vs Rumble) & reach, height, size difference aren't too far off, so why the hell not?


    Seriously tho, who takes it?
    My money is on Robbie via better chin, gas tank, pressure & not relying on TRT :D
    Will this be a vicious war or do u see a flash KO?

    Please share your thoughts...

    Vitor is too big and powerful for Robbie and a superior striker

    Robbie has a better chin? He's got a very good chin, but so does Vitor.

    I'd put my money on Vitor in this one, but you can never count out Lawler.

    Vitor is too big but who knows really, Robbie was able to knock Manhoef out

    Vitor easy - Robbie is looking good at 170 but the elite at 185 is too much for him.

    To be fair, Rumble is a top tier LHW. :icon_chee

    Robbie can be out struck at MW, Lorenz Larkin did it.

    Was referring to 'at the time' of course lol
    By the way, Rumble fighting @ LHW means nothing as 'Rumble Weight' is not bound by weight class!

    Vitor can be knocked out at MW. Anderson Silva did it.

    Lawler was getting absolutely DESTROYED by Manhoef standing, right up until he clean knocked Manhoef out cold.

    Vitor is much better defensively and has a better chin than Manhoef

    Lets not get stupid here guys just because Robbie is on a hot streak at WELTERWEIGHT

    As much as I like Vitor, TRT can make 'anyone' look good, just ask legendary perennial top contender Chael fucking Sonnen.
    Having said that, I cannot wait to see how Vitor performs without it on his return.
