The Ecstasy and Agony of Robbie Lawler versus Rory MacDonald

“You are figuring him out.”

So said head coach, Firas Zahabi as his charge, Rory MacDonald sat swollen and bloodied upon his stool ahead of the fourth round. MacDonald's stoic, often gawky face was nearly unrecognizable. Beaten into an undefined slab of meat and cartilage by the champion, Robbie Lawler. That last round had been what he needed so desperately, a break in the champion's lines. MacDonald left the stool and made his way to the center of the cage with new vigor, but not that of a man who saw a glimmer of hope. That of a carnivore who had punctured the skin and tasted blood.

His breakdown of GSP vs Hendricks and why Hendricks was effective vs past wrestlers was brilliant. It's what got me into his stuff.

Jack Slack breakdowns are the only non-statistic-based breakdowns worth even reading imo.

Wow awesome read !

I disagree at the last few lines though where it says wanting to see a fight like this every weekend. I know I wouldn't. It was special because it rarely happens at such a high level like that. The reason it is special is because of its rarity.

The last evenly contested absolute war was jones vs Gustafson that I can think of off the top of my head.
