Why is Lawler going for takedowns? What the hell happened to the greatest WW Champion Bob Lawler?

Robbie Lawler rules because he has the special distinction that any time he fights, even the most lily livered “This is a sport! I don’t want anyone to get hurt!” people go insane ALL CAPS on social media and start actively wishing he would literally kill his opponent.

Both the Cerrone and Condit decisions were questionable.
Lawler has basically not turned in a great performance since the Rory rematch.

Smart of Magny to immediately grapevine legs to to disrupt potential ground and pound…

Lawler is one of the last remaining strands of early 2000 MMA. Amazing.
