Thread: Is anybody even giving Robbie a chance against Hendricks?

    I'm continually disappointed in the CSAC.

    With SF, they've shown that they're willing to hold one-night, two-round tourneys, they should have been lobbying the hell out of the Fertittas to bring a big card back to the state. The format isn't as gripping as the OG one-nighters, but it's still pretty awesome, and it hasn't been seen in a long time. It would have a "new" quality to it that might turn a few heads and could be the infusion of excitement zuffa has been looking for. If they held a tourney with Hendricks, Condit, Lawler; Diaz would probably be on board. If he isn't, Woodley would be every bit--if not more--viable.

    But they're a mess. They've always been a mess. It would be great if they got some serious leadership, but it just looks like it's not going to happen.

    i think if melvin manhoef can't knock out lawler, then i believe that hendricks will be in for a rude awakening if he wants to stand and bang. i believe lawler will probably win this fight.

    Hendricks is the favorite for obvious reasons. But you can never count a guy like Robbie out. He's pulled out plenty of victories where there were doubters. He's a vet and he hits like a truck. That's a recipe for winning.

    As much as I loved the one night tourneys back in the early days. With what wee know about brain injuries and concussions I don;t think it's a good idea for anyone to be fighting more then once in a night.

    After watching Lawler vs.Manhoef I will definitely never count Lawler out.

    Under the CSAC rules--the only US governing body to sanction a one-night tourney in over a decade--the event equates to (2) two-round fights.

    Which is less impactful than the atypical (1) five-round title fight.




    Your point is....?

    I'd give Robbie a chance against anybody.
