Not if Lawler has his way Saturday night. "He’ll have no choice but to stand. That’s what I plan on doing. I’m forcing him to stand and seeing how good his standup is. I believe if anyone stands, it’s just a matter of time before I catch them. I believe I’m better on standup. He’s a really good athlete. He’s explosive. His takedowns are real explosive and he’s got a judo background. I just have to keep it where I want to and not make any mistakes and take advantage of it being on the feet. I believe it’s going to be an awesome fight. Two guys, one guy not wanting to give up the belt and one guy going in there to take the belt. It’s going to be a battle." Lawler faces Souza for the Strikeforce Middleweight title.

Lawler is 1 dimensional fighter (stand up) .... Souza is atleast 1.732 dimensional...therefore 1.732>1...therefore Souza will win via souzaphone submission against mr tummy tattoo

that math is exact. lawler seems to be a good dancer though which could play a factor. he had that victory dance a few fights ago where he thought he was at a club. no way can souza under estimate that kind of rythm

Jacare will be eating canvas. Brutal knockout coming his way.
