"Ruthless" Robbie Lawler is going to fight Josh Koscheck at UFC 157.

This is a really fun fight, but given Lawler's past cardio issues and the fact that he is cutting to 170 again for the first time in years, he better put Kos away early.

My thoughts exactly. I wouldn't be shocked to see Kos get a submission finish in this fight either.

Koscheck 30-27 across the board. No way Lawler stops Kos from taking him down and getting beat up.

Lawler is one of my favorite fighters, but I agree with this. His only chance is a quick KO.

I would favor Josh, but would love to see Robbie break Josh's jaw with a viscouis haymaker!!!!

QUOTE(#5):

Would love to see the KO, but Kos is too smart. He's going to avoid the big shot and shoot for takedowns. Is this fight at 185?

Nope, 170.

I don't even want to know what he is going to have to put himself through to make 70 again. Hopefully he loses some muscle because he was a strong 185 guy.
