    The fight that saddened Sherdog... and probably ever MMA site.

    Nice shot though, somehow Lawler did not go unconscious (although he did go limp), he was still awake, but there would be no situation where he could recover from the knockdown and follow-up shots. Woodley hits too hard.

    Who are you backing: Woodley? or Till?

    Was so mad at how anti climatic this was

    After watching robbie in so many life and death battles, I was settling down for a nice battle

    Then boom, it's over

    Who the fuck was that guy that knocked him out by the way?
    What ever happened to that guy?

    Woodley received a title shot after only two wins, one being a controversial split decision vs Gastelum, and still he complains that he is being treated unfairly by the UFC

    Lawler got the belt from Johny and I remember it was controversial as well. I don't remember the fight well, though.
    And before Woodley, he fought Condit and we all know how that went.

    I agree, I thought it was ridiculous how he still got a shot at the belt. He won 2 fights in the space of one and a half years to get a shot - after being embarrassed by MacDonald. I did not agree with it at all. Nice KO though.

    I kind of hope Woodley wins here, Till is ducking MW and even LHW and acts proud of it.

    I think I read that Wood's coaches at ATT kept bugging Dana for a title shot and Dana caved, probably because he thought Woodley would say he was racist if he didn't get one.

    I'm not a Robbie Lawler fan either - He's just kind of weird to me, but I'd root for anyone instead of Tyrone Woodley.

    that was one of the best performance of Woodley,
    we can see something similar against the biggest welterweight of all time

    I remember Hendricks dropping out and the fight being canceled but Woodley still weighing in (even w/o an opponent at that point) to prove he was a true professional and to receive his show money. Dana White was all like "we owe you, Tyron! We will make this up to you!" And then gave him a title shot soon after

    Tried to find a video of the weigh in and found the perfect video. Haha

    Robbie wasnt saddened. He was happy to offer himself up as tribute to the JBG(which is himself). Everybody won.

    Yeah, it kinda seems like Wood was rubbing it in Hendricks face by doing that because around the time the fight was supposed to happen Johny was saying Wood bit him in a wrestling match or something and there was some back and forth going on there..

    I went in expecting a war and Woodley ruined it for me.
    Almost like he was foreshadowing his own title reign....
