I hope he does come back to the UFC, but my gut tells me he's going to sign with Affliction.

In the short term he'll make more money at Affliction but get less quality opponents, and in the UFC he'll probably get payed a little less than he would at Affliction but receive better exposure and a deeper pool of opponents.

Boy i hope Dana and the Ferrtittas pony up the money and go get Lawler. he is a good fighter and has a bit of a draw with him. I would say his two fights on CBS with Scott Smith made him a name with the casual fans, especially if they go and look at his early career with the UFC. WAR RUTHLESS

Oh he is coming back to the UFC, because affliction would be the next to go under and so why sign there. Plus they are taking pay cuts. So he might make more money in UFC.

Lawler would be a great add. Just about any non jj opponent at mw would make a great fight. Plus the UFC could gloat about how the EXC org went down and they can hype his defunct champ status.


And as for the 2 great orgs, don't take this personally anyone but that's retarded. Look at the UFC LHW division in late 06. Chuck cleaned out the division. End of story. Rampage still knocks him out, big deal. Who's left? Tito? Babalu? Just think about what it means to have damn near all the best fighters fighting eachother.

But you want 2 orgs so Chuck never fights Wandy, Hendo never fights Anderson, Rampage is alive and well in Pride as the established Rich Franklin of the 203 division.

Sure if the UFC gets a monopoly they own the market and no longer have to compete, but they know what quality is. That's what they've buit it into.

I love Dream fc. It's great. But as much as I love seeing Japanese rules and stacked LW I would rather see all that talent fighting at the highest levels.

Hellboy vs BJ Gomi vs Sherk all that good stuff.

Fedor comes in with no orgs that have creampuff paychecks so intread he fights Randy or Lesnar. Maybe Mir.

AAHHHH.........PRIDE! What an awesome, crazy organization that was, it will be forever missed.

I wouldn't mind see him going to Dream or Affliction either, but like stated earlier...it's just a matter of time before at least Affliction goes under. I don't think Lawler has the love of the Japanese, I can only remember him there once. I just want Lawler back in the UFC because I am selfish.
It makes him easier to watch for me!
