UFC on FOX 26: Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael dos Anjos Toe-To-Toe preview – A complete breakdown

Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael dos Anjos News UFC on FOX 26 That December 16, 2017 in the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada.

1 sentence summary David: Two fighters prepare for battle instead of spoiling Star Wars on social media. Phil: Robert Glenn Lawler takes on the man of the angels. Stats Record: Robbie Lawler 28-11-1 NC | Rafael dos Anjos 27-9 Truth: Robbie Lawler +105 | Rafael dos Anjos -125 History / Intro to both fighters David: Lawler began 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 know all he had was a small cut to place Tiki to the bleached dirt. Lawler seemed like a fighter without a lot of upside down and a good deal of action. Slowly, his expertise turned into actual utility. Before long, he still didn’t have to reevaluate his match because regardless of how the game changed, the players had been the same. Somewhere along the way everything clicked – his robust striking became a shield against the rest of the attacks, and he packed his bombs into a calmer, almost Buddhist way to pugilism that otherwise looked controlled by a mind preoccupied with football routes and cheerleaders. Phil: Lawler went through several different incarnations because landing that lucky cut stoppage against 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 didn’t sound horribly excited by the idea of pursuing the belt , he has left ATT, and he has grown out the beard. Maybe Prizefighting Robbie is backagain. David: It feels like ages since RDA won the light title in blistering, dominant style versus Anthony Pettis. After a successful defense, he went on a two fight skid that began with an unexpected assault from who I believed had been an Eddie Alvarez on a minor 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 am not certain what his success in WW informs us about fighting Lawler however, that is part of the pleasure. Read more:
