    The difference between Robbie and Jake is that Robbie is much more aggressive and will actually bring it. I think Robbie has a better chance than people think here.

    I think Robbie can KO anyone at 170 if he connects. But Rory is very well rounded and getting better. Its can interesting ......everyone will be looking for that bomb to land.

    Robbie Lawler has the power to knock out a megalodon.

    Rory is going to be shooting for TDs in this fight when he finds out that his jabs aren't going to slow Lawler down like it did to Ellenberger.

    LOL, go watch the 3rd round of Robbie Lawler vs Babulu. Robbie outclassed and out struck a natural 205lber with more reach advantage, but that didn't matter, as Robbie was whopping on Babalu...

    I'd suggest you do the same and watch the 3rd round of Robbie vs Babalu... Most of you guys don't know shit...

    God yeah..he has power for days, but he's going to need to get through that jab and then avoid the takedown in order to use it. I know Rory is big but Lawler used to be at 185 so I think he can match his strength in clinch-work....i hope he puts Rory to sleep

    Babulu is bigger and has the same reach advantage as Rory Macdonald. Try again...

    Just do me a favor and watch that 3rd round guys, I'm out...

    Idk if you're trolling... That was an embarrassing fight for Robbie. He even admitted his game plan was "I just thought I'd knock him"

    So Babalu is some great kick boxer now? And I love how you have to single it down to the third round.

    Wow, I think we've found the biggest Lawler knob licker on this forum. He didn't even win against old man Seraldo Babalu who I've been watching get KO'd for 11 years.

    Did you think I was trying to say Lawler wasn't capable?? I didn't see the fight. I was just saying that Lawler is going to have to really worry about two tough aspects of Rory's gameplan while trying to implement his best chance of winning which is landing a clean, hard shot.

    Robbie won the first round imo, but I think Babalu may have won the first just on points. Second round as I remembered was that Babalu clearly won based upon for his take downs. First round was real close though, and 3rd round, Robbie clearly won.

    But Robbie wasn't sluggish in that fight, even if it was at 195lbs catchweight... Wtf?

    If robbie lands clean, pretty much everyone at 170 except maybe condit is gonna go down. Whether he actually lands the kill shot is a different story. Rooting for him, though.

    Robbie has always hit like a truck, i have no doubt he can KO anyone.

    Not unless if you seen the fight I've mentioned numerously... You won't know what I'm talking about unless you watch it, so you can keep making your assumptions about Robbie, just as everyone else, or you can find out the truth for yourself... jmo
