  1. I want this job allot, talking about fighting all day with highly technical analyst? sign me up. I've been doing karate muay Thai and mma for 4 years now and I'm about to major in media broadcasting

  2. Anyone who tries to strike with this guy will be wasting their time. This man has striking credentials for days while most guys in mma have grappling credentials and add striking as a secondary thing. The way to beat this dude is take him down and g&p or go for subs, easier said than done though obv. Lawler will get picked apart

  3. Stephen thompson you basically ran for 25 minutes throwing kicks here and there you are the mayweather of mma in short your fight was a snooze fest cerrones fight on this night was the best bout

  4. Calling it now lawler is going to knock him out and will be known as one of the greatest welterweights ever, he's put on some of the best fights of all time, he's the next hendo still fighting at 40 years old..can't say that about half these UFC fighters,definitely can't say that about mcgregor, next 10fights
    Connor is getting his ass beat at least half of those fights 

  5. Jesus, I really thought Rory would beat him. Granted I know Stephen is an unbelievable fighter, but I thought Rory was too experienced in MMA. This guy never ceases to amaze me. First Hendricks, now this. He's the next champ, I think.

  6. Flaws that I saw in wonder boy. Keeps a leg extremely forward and leaves open space at the torso, but he likes to keep moving. Use kicks and kick him up the center. Forward kicks, Crane kicks, side kicks. Hit him in a clinch Cormier style to stop his movement. Rory takes the W in the rematch.

  7. Thompson just won his toughest fight at 170.  I don't think Robbie can go the distance with Wonderboy.  With no threat of a takedown, Thompson is going to put on a striking clinic and Lawler is going to be the punching bag.
