Rumble because he can wrasle and he'd take the fight at MW and not cut as much weight.

It's a dream fight for me, too. haha. Lawler's my favorite middleweight, and Johnson is my second favorite welterweight. I wouldn't be able to stay still while this fight was going down.

Lawler easily if Rumble is a dumbasss and stands. If Lawler beat Manhoef K-1 level striker standing he would beat Rumble....

Rumble via wrestling, Lawler is good and will always have a punchers chance. but i really feel like Rumble is much more well rounded then he is given credit for. i think he would be able to out strike anybody that would out grapple him, and out grapple anybody that could strike with him. St Pierre and Diaz may be exceptions but i think Rumble will be top 5 WW by the middle of next year if he doesnt move to welterweight...or light heavyweight...or heavyweight...

but the fan boy in me wants to say that Lawler could connect with a Manhoefesque knockout shot.

Awful argument. He was getting his ass kicked in that first round and threw a wild overhand that connected flush. All that fight proved to me was that Lawler could take a beating and he has some serious power. Johnson has those same attributes. A fight standing would be interesting.

Exactly! Using that same logic, Randleman is a better striker than Cro Cop.

Not a better striker, smarter, Anthony Johnson doesnt always fight smart and Lawler beat Manhoef with his smarts. He must have known he was the inferior striker.

Johnson throws wildly a lot of times, open techniques. Open to get countered.

i think it was more pride than anything, lawler knew he could of took it to the ground, b ut he wanted to prove that he can knockout anybody and he did that with manhoef

i had to go with johnson. i just dont think lawler is as well rounded. without a big punch landing, i think AJ would take the "W" all day
