History / Intro to both fighters
David: Lawler started his career as something of a proto-Mike Perry. He told Tiki Ghosn that after he”touched him with his hands”, it could be lights out. Little did Lawler know all he had was a little cut to place Tiki into the bleached dirt. Lawler looked like a fighter without much upside down and a good deal of action. Slowly, his expertise turned into actual utility. Before long, he still did not need to revolutionize his match because no matter how the game shifted, the players had been exactly the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked – his strong striking became a shield against all other strikes, and he packaged his bombs for hands into a calmer, nearly Buddhist way to pugilism that differently looked controlled by a mind preoccupied with football routes and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through a number different incarnations because landing that fortunate cut stoppage from 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 now? He did not sound horribly excited by the thought of chasing the belt , he has left ATT, and he has grown out the blossom. Maybe Prizefighting Robbie is back. David: It feels like ages since RDA won the light name in blistering, dominant style versus Anthony Pettis. After a successful defense, he proceeded on a two struggle skid that started with an unexpected attack from who I thought was an Eddie Alvarez on a little downward tendency given the wars he had been in. RDA got blitzed, and then blitzed again by Tony Ferguson. All of a sudden RDA is back. At welterweight. I’m not certain what his success at WW tells us about battling Lawler though, that is part of the fun.
