    Agreeed...
    Interim belt holders are basically just glorified #1 contenders.... these interim belts are completely pointless

    Am I crazy for thinking this is an easy fight for Robbie?

    Ruthless is gonna put RDA in a coma.

    T-Wood annoyed me for talking about 'money fights' but the fact is he defended his belt vs the two main challengers in the division and was very active about it. He's earned his respect as a champion.

    I would like to see GSP vs Woodley next over RDA or a Lawler rematch.

    I know MMA math is usually lame but RDA made quick work of Cerrone two years ago. Imo the biggest factor is where Lawler is in his career arc currently. Lots of people thought he'd steam roll Cerrone but not near the case. I think Robbie's peak was against Rory Mac, it's just knowing how far from that version he is now.

    For me it's a pick 'em fight.

    Fights where RDA has been completely written off has been done to people's peril (see Pettis championship fight as a prime example)

    I got RDA all the way. When it gets closer to the fight and anybody wants to throw down some cash hit me up

    I would like to think that these 2 won't try to stir up any of that ridiculous he-said-she-said namecalling "drama" and just behave like grown men in the lead up to the fight.

    I would also like to think that the UFC can somehow* promote a fight without the need for fake and cringeworthy hostility.


    Well, at least one of the two won't happen here . . .
    I just hope the fight happens, though

    I think you may be right as rda is going to lay some serious leg kicks on Robbie......and he looks good at that weight. Chael said “Rafael, for those that don’t know, walks around close to 205, he is not a small guy”

    I'm actually pissed I'll be away. The last card in Winnipeg got destroyed by injuries (it was fun nonetheless) and this one looks great.

    My parents are taking my family to Mexico for their 50th anniversary and my dads 70th birthday. It's awesome that they're doing it but the timing is terrible.
