Not a huge fan of this fight, I feel like saff should be thrown to the wolves since he himself is also a wolf being the final sf champ.

I like it because it can elevate Lawlor's status and Tarec will stand with him...been a while since he has had an opponent willing to do that.

I think this should be good. Two great but essentially different strikers. WAR LAWLER!!

Interesting fight. A power puncher vs technical kickboxer.

That said Tarec has more subs than he does KO's so he could look to get the sub in this fight.

Either way the winner of this fight gets out grabbled later on in there career.

Tough match up for Lawler. Tough to count Robbie out, but Tarec might pick him apart. Should be a fun fight

Pretty much now maia will be on 163 card now for sure

I hope Lawler gets beaten down so this hype around him is gone.
