History / Intro 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 would be lights out. Little did Lawler understand all he had was a small cut to put Tiki to the lava soil. Lawler looked like a fighter without much upside down and plenty of activity. Gradually, his experience turned into real utility. Before long, he still did not need to reevaluate his game because regardless of 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 attacks, and he packed his bombs for hands into a calmer, almost Buddhist approach to pugilism that otherwise looked commanded by means of a mind preoccupied with soccer paths and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through a number different incarnations since landing that fortunate cut stoppage from Mr Ghosn. The Miletich brawler, the Team Quest bearded nomad, and eventually the slimmed down brutalizer who stunned everyone on his solution to the UFC welterweight belt. What incarnation are we looking at today? He didn’t sound terribly enthused by the idea of chasing the belt , he has left ATT, and he’s grown out the beard. Maybe Prizefighting Robbie is backagain. David: It feels like ages since RDA won the light title in blistering, dominant fashion vs Anthony Pettis. Following a successful defense, he proceeded on a two struggle skid that began with an unexpected attack from who I believed had been an Eddie Alvarez on a little downward trend given the wars he’d 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 at WW tells us about battling Lawler however, that is part of the pleasure.
