    So much for damage Dana. Lawler looks perfect and Hendricks is all busted up. But then again, Dana White and especially that idiot Joe Rogan and full on the Hendricks train, he can do no wrong. I had the fight 3 to 2 for Lawler. Hendricks won the first and 5th round. The worst display of Martial Arts I have ever seen. This was just a brawler match up. GSP please come back refreshed and hungry and beat the %^$# out of Hendricks. PLEASE!!!! I loved the boos for Hendricks during his speech.

        You must be Tank Abbots biggest fan.

      I just wanted to see a good fight, and it was….but Hendricks took 3 of 5 no doubt.

      • TheCerealKiller

        Lawler had 3 of 5, look at Hendricks face! At least that’s what you all said after the GSP/Hendricks fight. Robbie won, but it’s not a bad decision. We won’t see GSP at 170 again anyways.

        • Collideoverme

          I wanted Lawler to win. He didn’t. That damage came from the 3-4 rds. Hendricks won 1, 2, 5. Sucks, but he did.

          • taylor2008

            Totally agree. Thats how I had it too. I like Lawler and would have been happy with either guy winning.

        • taylor2008

          Still stalking me like the creep you are. No Hendricks won that fight. He clearly took 3 of 5 rounds.

    • Maddawgmar

      Your chin must hurt from GSP’s balls slapping against it repeatedly.

      • vulcanman64 .

        Tell me something missy. How does Hendricks taste?

    • teddy

      lawler looked horrible, and still beat Hendricks.
      gsp is going to make a December return. he is back training at tristar and wild card boxing with freddy roach. lawler should be the champ right now but of course they screw him its Hendricks home town

      • Collideoverme

        I don’t think Lawler looked bad. I think his game plan was to stick close and counter. It worked for two rds. He should have adjusted and been the aggressor in rd 5. He let Hendricks take that from him by waiting again for Hendricks to lead in. He instead took him down. It worked against Robbie in the last rd.

    • Ryan thompson

      So I guess you thought Hendricks deserved the Win VS GSP because GSP’s face was smashed up while Hendricks face had no visible wounds.

      • vulcanman64 .

        Actually, GSP is ten times the fighter of both of them. The argument isn’t if Hendricks is a better fighter, everyone knew he’s not better than St. Pierre, its if he won their fight. He never did. GSP 3-2. The technical matchup beat the power punches Johnnie threw anyway. The sarcasm was to Dana White and Joe Rogan. Cant stand those guys anymore.

        • taylor2008

          I was agreeing with your sarcasm to Dana and Rogan, but it kind of turned around when you said GSP being 10 times better than those 2 fighters.

          • vulcanman64 .

            He is. Sorry. Lawler has a 22-10-1 record and Jonnies nowhere near St. Pierres stats. Are you for real?

          • taylor2008

            You must be celebrating St Patricks day a little early. When GSP beat Hendricks that was a very close fight. Didnt look near 10 times. Not even 2 times. Be careful driving home.

          • vulcanman64 .

            Yes close fight. Too close for comfort, Ill agree with you but GSP won technically. The two he lost he lost bad. As a fighter, he’s much better normally. Also with 3 black belts in three diff styles of Karate and a black belt in BJJ and olympic calibre wrestling, I believe he’s a much better fighter than Johnnie. Peace.

          • taylor2008

            GSP is the better athlete. Fighting wise they are pretty equal. That was the first time I saw GSP have trouble wrestling someone. Hendricks took it to him in that area. I will give a SLIGHT edge to GSP. Hendricks and Lawler have KO’d people in some of their last few fights. GSP hasnt.

          • vulcanman64 .

            Its because of their power, but they don’t have the lifetime of martial arts training. Some are gifted with the punchers chance and some aren’t. GSP isn’t the best in any specific area, but mastered all areas. I like Johnnie basically, but the whining he put on after their fight turned me off. He seemed better during the post fight with Lawlor tho. Also remember GSP has a better finishing rate than Hendricks has if you check the stats. Hendricks hasn’t finished the top dogs either. Hard to do when your fighting the worlds best.

          • taylor2008

            Its not just because of the power. And GSP is NOT better in your mind because he is a life long martial artist. Just because someone might have a blackbelt in some martial art does not mean he is a better fighter than someone with a lower belt. Before I started training years ago I would just work on punching and kicking a bag. I tried to mimic the good striking MMA guys. When I first got into training they threw me in with seasoned kickboxers for the stand up and I did real well against them. The instructor asked if I sparred before and I told him no. He thought I sparred and competed at one time but I didnt. I was just a natural. Not long after I was doing jsut as well or better than long time fighters. Just because someone trains for a long time does not mean they are better.
            And Hendricks was not whining. He thought he beat GSP and he could have been right. That was a very close fight and Hendricks took GSP down which most fail at.
            Yes I checked the stats and you need to learn math. Hendricks has 18 fights with 8 ko’s and 1 sub. Thats a 50% finish rate. GSP has 27 fights with 8 ko’s and 5 subs. Thats a 48% finish rate. And what top dogs has GSP finished in the past few years? Oh right….none.
            I like GSP but if or when he comes back him fighting Hendricks again, and some of these other beasts….. he is going to have a very hard time.

          • vulcanman64 .

            I can see we agree to disagree. Hendricks is nowhere near the martial artist gap is. You see, its like this. GSP has the black belts where Hendricks does not have any. None. Zero. He has a powerful left and a very high ranking wrestler. Thats his strength. Not sure why you don’t understand this if you are a martial artist as you claim you are. I AM a lifetime martial artist and only fighters would agree with me I guess. Keep wishing pal, because I would love to see GSP return, as I have no doubt he would still be king. Answer me this… When was the last time your buddy Hendricks finished anyone? Oh, yes, three fights ago as soon as he started fighting the worlds best. So much for just touching someone and they fall like he promised he would do. He’s a powerful striker and so is Robbie, but thats where the story end. Exciting to blood thirsty knockout fans, but hardly the worlds best. Hendricks reign won’t last. Peace.

          • taylor2008

            You sure are a condensending prick arent you? Dont talk down to people if you want any respect.
            What the hell do you think wrestling is? Its a martial art. Just like kickboxing, Jitz, Muay Thai and others. A belt doesnt mean a damn thing! Know what a belt is good for? Holding up your pants. I dont give a shit how long someone has been in martial arts. Doesnt make that person a better fighter. I schooled black belts in kick boxing and thai when I was only training for a short time. I had over 10 fights thai kickboxing with 11-0 record and 3 MMA fights with 3-0 record and 3 KOs. I got into the MMA scene too late. And know what? All the guys I fought were very long time martial artists. I beat them all with a 1/4 of the time training.
            And no Hendricks in “my buddy”. He seems like a very nice guy when he is talking. Very respectable to everyone ….unlike you. If you truly have been in martials arts a while you sure didnt learn repect.
            Last guy Hendricks finished was Kampman who was ranked fairly high. Who was the last high ranking guy GSP finished? BJ Penn back in 2009 and that was a corner stoppage. BEfore that it was Serra back in 2008. Hendricks hasnt fought a lot in the past few years but at least he KO’d someone fairly recent. GSP hasnt finished anyone for YEARS. And I am a GSP fan.
            I dont think John keeps the belt for long either. What makes you think I am some Hendricks nuthugger? I like GSP.
            So far everyone that you have talked to on these boards you have put down or acted like some jerk. Maybe if you realized you arent right all the time you would have better conversations.

          • taylor2008

            How about you respect people more on these boards. You sound like some know it all that jsut likes to argue and pretend you are always right.
            I am a GSP fan but because he is a long time martial artist doesnt mean he is a better fighter. Its just like when I first started. I started training agaisnt seasoned guys and I did well. I schooled black belts once I got the experience. I was beating long long time martial artists with just 1/4 their training time. I ended up 11-0 with 8 KOs in thai kickboxing and 3-0 in MMA with 3 KOs. I started too late in life to go anywhere big. A belt doesnt mean you are better. A belt is for holding your pants up. Thats it.
            And you keep saying my buddy hendricks. Maybe if you werent being so pompous all the time you would have read that I am a GSP fan. I like Hendricks and think he is a respectable guy. He isnt a jerk to fighters.
            Hendricks finished someone 3 fights ago but GSP hasnt finished anyone since BJ Penn in 2009…and that was a corner stoppage. Last true TKO he had was 2008 against Serra.
            And Hendricks didnt say he would KO everyone. He even said that someone was going to get KO’d in the first couple rounds. Him or Lawler.
            And I dont think Hendricks keeps the belt for too long either. But if GSP comes back he is going to have a VERY hard time getting the belt back.
            You talk down to EVERYONE on these boards. You obviously learned no respect what so ever in martial arts. You argue with everyone if they dont have the same thoughts as you. Maybe if you gave respect you would get it back.

    • Ryan thompson

      That was a entertaining fight. A lot more entertaining then most of GSP’s fights.

      • vulcanman64 .

        Might be boring to a chubby armchair critic like you. You like to be entertained. Slugfests are better than Martial Arts right? Hey fella, check out bum fights on youtube. Trust me, its for you.

  • AXE MURDERER

    Give Hector the next shot!

  • Ryan thompson

    It never fails, some mma fans will bitch about anything!
    It must suck to go through life as such a miserable c**t.
    You can’t watch a good fight with out whining like a little girl.

    • vulcanman64 .

      Ryan, did your boyfriend like the fight?

  • jesusdidnttap

    GOOD FIGHT….THOUGHT LAWLER DID ENOUGH…HATS OFF TO BOTH
