History / Introduction to both fighters
David: Lawler started his career as something of a proto-Mike Perry. He told Tiki Ghosn that once he”touched him with his hands”, it could be lights out. Little did Lawler understand all he needed was a small cut to place Tiki into the lava soil. Lawler seemed like a fighter without much upside and a good deal of action. Gradually, his expertise turned into actual utility. Before long, he did not have to revolutionize his match because no matter how the game shifted, the players were exactly the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked – his strong striking turned into a shield against the rest of the strikes, and he packed his bombs into a calmer, almost Buddhist way to pugilism that differently looked controlled by means of a mind preoccupied with soccer paths and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through several different incarnations since landing that lucky cut stoppage against Mr Ghosn. The Miletich brawler, the Team Quest bearded nomad, and the slimmed down brutalizer who shocked everyone on his way to the UFC welterweight belt. What incarnation are we looking at today? He didn’t sound horribly excited by the thought of chasing the belt , he’s left ATT, and he has grown out the beard. Perhaps Prizefighting Robbie is back. David: It feels like ages since RDA won the mild name in blistering, dominant fashion vs Anthony Pettis. After a successful defense, he went on a two struggle skid that started with an unexpected attack from who I believed had been an Eddie Alvarez on a minor downward tendency given the wars he had been in. RDA got blitzed, then blitzed again by Tony Ferguson. All of a sudden RDA is back. At welterweight. I’m not certain what his achievement in WW informs us about fighting Lawler however, which is part of the pleasure.
