    He just completely shut down the wrestling of the best wrestler @ 170 who also happens to be the physically strongest WW. Forgot about manhandling Wonderboy. Hendricks is also one of the best clinchers in the division and he couldnt work his clinch at all.

    No one @ 170 can stand with Wonderboy period. Not Robbie, not Carlos, not Tumenov, not Larkin, not Brown who already got oustruck and nearly knocked out and only won becaue Wonderboy was hella green and Matt beat him up in the clinch but Wonderboys clinch and clinch defense has improved alot since then.

    Youre not gonna outwrestle him and youre not gonna outstrike him. Assuming he has good cardio youre only hope is to squeak by rounds by stalling and trying to transition striking and grappling and sooner or later he will adapt and likely knock u out

    Lawler vs. Wonderboy for the title. It's the only fight that makes sense.

    He will be the next champ. I really like Robbie but Wonderboy is just too fast and accurate he is just too much right now for everyone in that division.

    Too early too say after stuffing just one takedown attempt from Hendricks. But his footwork is gonna help him out for sure and Lawler is the perfect match up for him to at least become champ for a little while, even if he doesnt live up to the expectations we have now.

    Rory has the best chance to beat him and GSP depending on how he looks in his first fight back.

    Yeah, Lawler has great power and a fantastic chin, but he's plodding and very hittable. He absorbs heaps of damage in just about every fight he's in. Wonderboy would dance around him and make him look really bad en route to a T/KO, not unlike the fight we just saw.

    wow! now hes the GOAT? After beating one guy,he is suddenly the greatest ever.It was a great win,but I think Maia,Robbie,Rory,and Tyron might beat him easily.To be honest Johny looked awful,rather than Wonderboy being wonderful,but he is a great kid,and I want him to go far,but he has a long way to go yet.I think Rory would beat him,because he is long,and has grappling

    i'm curious to see how mighty Lombard is upon his return. After the mighty USADA has come to the lands of the ufc, i wonder how much Lombard will still have sway in the caged kingdom. but if he is still scary, he might be a good matchup.

    Maybe Maia but doubtful
    Cote did much better against Wonderboy but Thompson is probably the funnest guy to watch right now and certainly the best striker right now.

    WTF is Tyron and especially Demian going to do to Wonderboy?

    Rory has a shot. I wouldnt count Robbie out tho i think hed be clear underdog

    Hahah it's like every time someone wins impressively over a good fighter people go nuts on this board thinking they are unbeatable.
