    If Lawler can respect Hendricks power and can keep himself off the mat then I do believe Lawler can win this fight. I truly think his power will be there to eventually hurt Hendricks, a composition of work, while Hendricks can turn out the lights in one or make keep Lawler down.

    That's what I'm hoping for.

    I'm not sold on Hendricks at all, particularly in light of all the people who are so convinced he "clearly" won the Georges bout. I've also got doubts about him and juicing, but I guess time will tell on that.

    But while I think Robbie is a significant underdog, it would be a great story--at least, to my mind--if he pulls off the upset.

    Yup, this is the first time I've read anything suggesting that Robbie is going to get steamrolled. I know Johny is favourite, but I didn't think he was an overwhelming favourite.

    Definitely. Robbie has my nostalgia vote.

    Im really looking forward to this fight and the Condit/Woodley fight.

    I think Hendricks would be dumb to try and just bang with Robbie. I'll never forget how he laid Melvin Manhoef the fuck out while barely standing against the cage. That's some serious power.

    I'm pulling for Lawler. It would be great to see a guy who has been at this for so long finally get the UFC title.

    Hendricks plays it safe to get the strap.

    I think Lawler will struggle I the later rounds, however we don't know if his power can KO Hendricks, I can't remember seeing Hendricks being rocked before, should be a great fight and I will be happy whoever wins!
