History / Intro to both fighters
David: Lawler started his career as something of a proto-Mike Perry. He famously told Tiki Ghosn that once he»touched him with his hands», it could be lights out. Little did Lawler understand all he had was a little cut to place Tiki to the bleached dirt. Lawler seemed like a fighter without a lot of upside and plenty of activity. Gradually, his expertise turned into real utility. Before long, he didn’t need to reevaluate his match because regardless of how the game shifted, the players were the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked — his robust striking turned into a shield against the rest of the attacks, and he packed his bombs for hands into a calmer, almost Buddhist way to pugilism that differently looked commanded by means of a mind preoccupied with soccer paths and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through several different incarnations because landing that lucky cut stoppage against Mr Ghosn. The Miletich brawler, the Team Quest citrus nomad, and the slimmed down brutalizer who stunned everyone on his solution into the UFC welterweight belt. What incarnation are we looking at now? He didn’t sound terribly enthused by the idea of chasing the belt , he’s left ATT, and he’s grown out the blossom. Maybe Prizefighting Robbie is backagain. David: It seems like ages since RDA won the mild name in blistering, dominant style versus Anthony Pettis. After a successful defense, he went on a two fight 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 sure what his achievement in WW tells us about fighting Lawler however, which is part of the pleasure.
