I was actually riding in my car earlier wondering where Babalu was! I like his chances against Robbie. Anaconda choke!

Robbie is a nice guy, but I'm going with Babalu on this one.

All Babalu has to do is avoid one flurry of punches to get it to the ground...from there it's over. This will be tough to watch as I am a huge fan of both, but I got to go with Babalu here, especially after what Jake did to Robbie!

This will be damn good fight.
I'm not sure who give the edge though. I may slighlty lean towards Lawler though I'll root for Babalu

I dont like Babalu after he choked that bloody guy after the ref stopped it. It was much more blatant than Paulharris leg lock recently.
Babalu will have trouble getting Robbie to the ground ,
Robbie Lawler by vicious ko imo

Babalu for the easy money. This fight is at 195. He's the bigger better grappler and has the better cardio.
