“I can’t tell if he doesn’t let it go or he’s just not that well rounded,” said White as transcribed by Tom Ngo from 5thround.com. “He’s just very one-dimensional. He has this style of nullifying a fight. He has a style of just making the action stop. I think that a lot of guys, he bugs them out and gets in their head when he starts doing that and they feel like they can’t land and it ends up being this staring competition.
“All the way leading up to this fight, I kept saying this is the perfect fight for MacDonald because we’re gonna find out what he’s really got in this fight because Robbie Lawler is going to take it to him. Robbie Lawler has this style of wrestling and hands and the power to hurt you that you’re going to have to fight completely different than you have been.”
