Personally, I think Lawler is the uncrowned champ.

Naah.  He is past his prime, and he always lost to marquee fighters anyway.  He would lose to Lawler or Hendricks and probably to Brown as well.

Nick Diaz past his prime > Lawler in his prime

 

Lawler has the best chin in the division, but he better keep distance from the GOAT

He did beat Lawler once many years ago, but I don't see that happening today.  Diaz will probably get smoked by Silva though, and we won't see him back anyway.

GSP is out for now.  Interesting how no one voted for Hendricks.  I think everyone knows Hendricks should have lost out on the score cards against Lawler.

I'm a huge fan, and think he is excellent. However, I think his wrestling simply is not good enough when you consider the strength of some of the top WWs.

On the bait and switch topic, this organization is becoming notorious for that. Let's not put it past them to end up with Lesnar/Hunt as the main event of 200 just yet. I wouldn't be surprised whatsoever if DC/Jones 2 ends up in MSG.

Lawler gets hit by everyone. If Diaz had power to KO him then, he has power to KTFO him now

First of all, Diaz is weighting up to MW as of right now.  Second of all, lots of welter weights have tooled Diaz throughout his career.  That is crap that he is the best.

If they all had to walk in legit then GSP easily,Brown would probably be second..maybe.Rory used to fight a division lower so imo he could also be a legit 170.
