    Lol. Does anyone take these predictions in consideration for betting decisions?

    To be fair, it's that guy Connor Ruebusch. Pretty bold prediction but he thinks Lawler's wars have caught up with him. Certainly a legit concern.

    After all the upsets in 2016 would it really surprise anyone if woodley does win?

    It's possible. Robbie was hurt by Hendricks, possibly Ellenberger, Brown, Rory, and Condit. It's just a matter of time before that chin gives out.

    He also took Ed Herman which IMO is a way bigger upset.

    Majority predicted Henricks would beat Lawler, Macodonald & Condit would beat him....i stopped predicting a Lawler loss at that Macdonald fight...

    Well Chuck had a pretty similar fighting style to Lawler, fierce chin to back it up. And then one day it was just completely and totally gone.

    I don't understand why so many people are counting out Woodley when Robbie could have been 0-3 in his last 3.

    He lost to Hendricks.

    Was going to a toss up decision before Rory's nose exploded. I had it 2-2 going into the fifth.

    Condit fight was one of worst gifted decisions ever.

    I read on MMAjunkie today that over the past couple years Lawler is the most hit fighter. Not a continued recipe for success even if he gets by Woodley.

    This doesn't make sense. How was it almost 0-3 if he finished Rory? No decision but a TKO.

    Chris Leben as well. You can only depend on your chin for offense so long. They don't last in this game.

    Thanks for grabbing the one thing you saw you didn't agree with but didn't take the context with it.

    Yeah I was surprised as that too. Very bold prediction but who knows, could happen. I think Woodley has to finish it early if he's going to finish it at all. Longer this goes on it favours lawler

    No. Chuck was a counter-striker. Lawler is a brawler.

    Just like how people were saying Alvarez had nothing for RDA because he was supposed to be 0-3.

    Its very possible and worth a bet on those odds.

    This thread has serious bump potential lol.

    Wont be surprised if Woodley has alot of new fans after this weekend.
