yes it is ninja rua and i herd he did do good in his last fight but on the same hand lawler has also faced villasenor and destroyed him in 22 sec so i still think it could go either way

Ninja for sure. Probably a decision or tko.

I'd take Ninja too, but that guy is rarely a sure ticket, looks really vunerable sometimes imo.

Chute Boxe Thai Clinch > MFC Thai Clinch.

Ha actually I don't see how Robbie can win it Ninja is almost as good standing up. Robbie's got some heavy hands though. And Ninja will school him on the ground so I don't see what Robbie can bring that Ninja hasn't seen.

I mean Ninja will probably spar with a heavy hitter from Chute Boxe and they have guys that are in Robbies' league so Ninja will be ready for Robbie's hands. I cant say the same for Robbie camp to help him enough with Ninjas JJ though.

Chute Boxe > MFC

I gotta go with Lawler, but this should be a war. It was nice to see Ninja showing his skills again. Rua is a more all around fighter I will admit, and my head is telling me he has the advantage, but I'm a huge Lawler fan, so I gotta go with him.

I don't think you can take anything out of the fact that they both fought Joey V. The reason why I say this is, what can you really take from a 22 second fight, and Lawler and Rua are to different types of fighters. I can't wait for this fight to happen.

now you guys are right ninja has way better ground game the lawler and his standup is really good i think lawler has better standup and if he can keep it standing i think he still wins lawler does have really good takedown d but i dont know if that will be enough to stop ninjas takedowns

Ninja is better on the feet and on the ground. Plus he has better conditioning, experience, and a better chin

IMO i think Ninja is a top 10 MW. I he only has 2 losses against mw's an that was Filho and Kang no shame in losing to them. I mean the rest of his loses come from LHW and HW, i mean shit he should have beat Rampage.

I think people look at his record an think that he is crap or not that good but in fact he is really good. I just think he has some mental issues that need to be worked out an he will be really hard to beat. I think that would come from training at another camp for about a year then if he wants go back to chute.

I think Ninja is going to molest Robbie. Ninjas stand up is better, his knees are better, kicks are better, he is way better on the ground. Yeah Robbie can end this fight with a KO but its going to have to come when he is getting his ass beat.

Ninja by TKO early second round.

I agree Dork, Lawler gets punked in this fight unless he catches Ninja with a lucky strike. His striking isn't all that good, especially against someone he knows can take him down and has good JJ. Look at his loss to Diaz, a prime example. He looked like he had a glass jaw after getting drop with that weak looping left.

If Ninja doesn't get KO'd early he will win IMO, his chin is suspect at times and once the fight gets going he seems to settle in

Lawler has all the tools but,.......I'm not sure what his problem is. Maybe Miletech can figure it out and help the boy.

ninja could submit him if he got it to the ground. lawler has good punching power and could ko him kang style, or ninja could use his muy thai to win the standup but lawler probably has the better standup.

If lawler comes out like he has,...he will get caught or enevitably end up on the ground and have to tap out. Ninja is simply too much. Big hands don't win fights,....MMA means the whole package and lawler just doesn't quite have it,...not sure what his problem is.

I got to go with Lawler with this one, Ninja's stand up look sloppy in his last fight. Robbie by KO

I agree. But I will be taking Ninja anyway.

I gotta give the edge to Ninja, obviously, but Lawler is a f'n sparkplug! Win (Trigg) or lose (Diaz) I love his enthusiasm for standup!
