    He couldn't beat Condit, he didn't finish Hendricks (twice), he was behind against MacDonald...

    No.

    I think his run is over. Had a great up and down and up career. He'll still be booked with many top 5 guys in the future to fight.

    He might have a fair chance, but his decline must start somewhere....

    I think he's a favorite over more guys than Woodley is, but neither of them is going to be a dominant champ. There's nobody at WW who's in a position to dominate the division right now, unless Wonderboy can keep doing what he's doing.

    I don't think he will now, too many good up and comers. But it is possible, but I doubt it.

    Depends on whether they give the shot to Wonderboy first

    I think we are closing in the "Wonderboy era".

    If not, The "Backpack era"

    not likely imo.

    a lot a good fight could be made with him at 170 or even 185.

    Vs Nick 2 is the one fight to make tho.

    Rory would likely tool Woodley again, so if that fight ever happens then maybe.

    Would be very surprised, I think he still has some fun fights left but don't see him regaining the belt.

    He could beat Bisping, so maybe...

    Probably not. Very few fighters ever regain the belt after they lose it. I don't see Lawler being one of those few.

    Totally possible. He wins his next fight he's right back in contention.

    It's possible but I wouldn't bet on it. I think Wonderboy is going to take that title and be a hard man to beat.

    Big fan but I dont think so, he had a good late career run that was amazing to see, and the fights were all awesome displays of heart and determination...Robbie is a true warrior and the most entertaining WW champ in a long time.

    Not if he has to fight: Rory, Condit or Wonderboy in the near future.
