It would be a heck of a fight if Wonderboy squared off with Robbie Lawler!

The UFC seems mostly interested in putting together mega fights that feel will sell boatloads of PPVs. Sometimes it seems as if they are not looking at the entire division and making fights that make sense. That’s when the fighters step in. Fans love super fights, but they also want to see guys who will throw down.  I want to see guys who will leave it in the cage go one on one. Stephen Thompson and Robbie Lawler is a can’t-miss fight. Both guys will undoubtedly bring action!

Rather than go all Conor/Colby Covington and act a fool, he went the respectful route and pitched the fight via Twitter.

The fight makes sense as well, as it could certainly serve as a title eliminator. Robbie is a former champion and Wonderboy has been in multiple title fights. Thompson has two losses in the past four years, both via Split Decision. He lost to current champion Tyron Woodley and was bested by recent title contender Darren Till. I felt he won the fight with Till. He’s undoubtedly a deserving candidate for another title fight with a win over Lawler.

Robbie Lawler is the former champion who dropped the belt to Woodley. He needs to get a win or two under his belt to jump back in the mix and a win over Wonderboy will act as a springboard. It’s a fight that as a fan I definitely want to see. Hopefully, they can make it happen.
