History / Intro to both fighters
David: Lawler started his career as something of a proto-Mike Perry. He famously 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 small cut to put Tiki into the bleached dirt. Lawler seemed like a fighter without much upside down and a good deal of action. Gradually, his experience turned into real utility. Before long, he didn’t need to revolutionize his game because regardless of how the game shifted, the players had been exactly the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked – his robust striking became a shield against all other attacks, and he packaged his bombs for hands into a calmer, nearly Buddhist way to pugilism that otherwise looked commanded by a mind preoccupied with football routes and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through a number different incarnations because landing that lucky cut stoppage from Mr Ghosn. The Miletich brawler, the Team Quest citrus nomad, and eventually the slimmed down brutalizer who stunned everyone on his way into 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’s grown out the blossom. Maybe Prizefighting Robbie is back. David: It feels like ages since RDA won the mild title in blistering, dominant fashion versus Anthony Pettis. After a successful defense, he went on a two fight skid that began with an unexpected assault from who I believed was an Eddie Alvarez on a little downward tendency given the wars he’d been in. RDA got blitzed, and then blitzed again by Tony Ferguson. All of a sudden RDA is back. At welterweight. I am not certain what his achievement at WW informs us about fighting Lawler though, that is part of the fun.
