    Just watched UFC 201. I'm very glad we will see Poland VS Poland next for the woman SW title, but what fucking shocked me is how Woodley KTFO the Ruthless one.
    Before the fight some sherbros here pictured this KO perfectly, but meeeeen! when i watched it i couldn't believe what just happened.

    At the end of the fight Lawler said that he expected Woodley to going for the kill like that early in the fight and i personally think his gameplan was to try to make him gas in order to take advatange of a slower and less explosive Woodley.

    Now, what i wonder is, what should have made different Lawler to win this fight?

    Not getting knocked out would've helped.

    Did Lawler even throw one strike?

    MMA striking is a joke and all you need is a over hand right to be a champ.

    LoL.

    NOOOOO! that's bcs!!! Like with Aldo VS McG, beside Conor's counter we didn't see nothing from the 2 fighters.
    Can we call this a "fluke"? As Lawler said he expected it, but he just got caught.
    Is Woodley the better fighter?

    why would you even be shocked, even if you didn't think woodley was gonna win you had to have known that could've happened in the first round or two.

    robbie isn't the most elusive guy and woodley's right hand is a missile.

    Lmao people thinking any combat sport has any better striking is a joke.

    The current dominant heavyweight in boxing, Deontay Wilder whose 30-0 with like all but 3 wins by KO didn't even start training until he was 20 years old lmao.

    He won a medal in the Olympics 2 years after he even started boxing.

    Such elite striking.

    A known (pardoned) juicer getting a comeback victory?

    People can post Nate getting starched too.

    Also Marquardt had to quit against Gastelum while Woodley still fought after breaking his foot.

    Funny how 4 years changes the game.

    Fighting Tyron on the inside is a risky proposition. He's just too damn quick and powerful. Even a partially blocked shot could lead to the end of fight. Keeping him at range makes it much more difficult to attack like that. Woodley won because he was the better fighter last night. Robbie let him work his strengths by putting his back to the cage.

    You should go in there with Robbie since it's so easy to throw a right hand, champ.

    Dude are you dense? I'm just saying if some dude can win a medal in the Olympics after training for only 2 years, boxing striking isn't elite either so your argument has no merit.

    I need to check my fandom. I wanted Lawler to win, but I didn't bleed internally after he lost. Sounds like some people did.
