    I think it's fair to say Lawler is not going to tire himself out. He's been through wars and seems to get to 5 rounds. It's probably not best to leave it up to the judges as arguably Condit won Lawler's last fight (saying that as a Lawler fan by the way).

    Punch him straight in the face multiple times before he gasses.

    Land a right hand?
    Woodley hits like a motherfucker and has pretty good timing on the counter. If he catches Robbie early when he's still figuring out the rhythm and timing it could be good night.

    Jab. Ignore trying to control Lawler's front hand (he'll just eat looping punches). Keep his feet in position to jab while taking away Lawler's jab
    Throw the left hook
    Takedown and clinch against the fence - Dirty box, punish Lawler for scrambles
    Work the body
    Don't back up straight to the fence, circle and try to get Lawler to over commit
    Take Lawler down early, take Lawler down late in each round
    Leg kick when Lawler is waiting
    Take advantage when Lawler takes rounds off
    Throw the right early and often but set it up first, don't rely on Lawler to give you an open look
    Recognize it's an uphill battle and you're going to get hit alot

    There is going to come a time in Lawlers career where the wars will show on him this could be that fight. Im expecting some wild crazy KO from Woodley.

    Either win at least three rounds, or knock out, or submit him.

    This will be telling early on because boy does Tyron have a tendency to do so when being pressured.

    Touch the chin of Lawler and its over. Woodley will KO lawler in the 1st or 2nd round.

    It sounds counter intuitive, but guys like Tyron who have punching power should be forced to train like they have pillow hands - at least early. Worst thing to happen to dudes early career was mudering Galvao how he did

    Tell his mom to beat up Robbie before the fight.

    I've been watching Tyron since the start of his MMA career (and even prior to that in his D1 days). He definitely has some of the best evolution in striking that I've ever seen from a wrestler. He's tailored it well to the strengths of his base unlike many wrestlers that want to try and emulate those from pure striking backgrounds.
