    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.

    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.
