History / Introduction 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 would be lights out. Little did Lawler understand all he had was a little cut to put Tiki into the bleached dirt. Lawler seemed like a fighter without a lot of upside down and a good deal of activity. Gradually, his experience turned into actual utility. Before long, he did not need to reevaluate his match because no matter how the game changed, the players had been exactly the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked – his robust striking became a shield against the rest of the strikes, and he packed his bombs for hands into a calmer, almost Buddhist approach to pugilism that otherwise seemed controlled by means of a mind preoccupied with soccer routes and cheerleaders.
Phil: Lawler went through a number different incarnations because landing that lucky cut stoppage against Mr Ghosn. The Miletich brawler, the Team Quest citrus nomad, and eventually the slimmed down brutalizer who shocked everyone on his solution into the UFC welterweight belt. What incarnation are we looking at now? He didn’t sound horribly excited by the thought of chasing the belt again, 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 light name in blistering, dominant fashion versus Anthony Pettis. Following a successful defense, he proceeded on a two fight skid that began with an unexpected attack from who I believed had been 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 rear. At welterweight. I am not sure what his success at WW tells us about battling Lawler however, that is part of the pleasure.
