View Full Version : Do you remember when Robbie Lawler said...
08-25-2003, 07:36 PM
he could KO Silva...That was some funny ****
that is all.
08-25-2003, 08:52 PM
Robbie might be able to, look at the people who have rocked Silva before. Tamura, Mezger, and Henderson. Henderson had Silva on queer street for a minute there......

Kaps hatred towards Silva affects his judgement.
08-25-2003, 09:46 PM
My hatred has nothing to do with the facts. A hard hitter like Lawler could have a chance against Silvas suspect chin......
08-25-2003, 09:47 PM
But that is also if Lawler could weather the storm long enough to land one of those punches.....
08-25-2003, 10:04 PM
Could, yes. Would, no.
08-25-2003, 10:12 PM
Who is to say he wouldnt? I imagin both of them have about the same chance of being KOed in that fight. Lawler would be giving up weight, thats his main disadvantage from what I can think of, besides not knowing how to block leg kicks......
08-25-2003, 10:43 PM
The potential is there. That's undeniable. But you can't say it wouldn't happen because you can't be sure.
08-25-2003, 11:00 PM
I don't mean it in the 100% state that my other post looked like.
Could he? Yes, he has power and if landed *could* ko Silva.
Would he? Most likely not. He has WW power, Silva has LHW power, Silva is bigger, stronger, faster, has better boxing skills, kicks, ground game, just plain better. He could win but it probably wouldn't happen.
08-25-2003, 11:46 PM
Yeah I can see what you're saying. Silva is a better all-around fighter.
08-25-2003, 11:47 PM
Silva is a better all around fighter than Tamura too, he still got chin checked though......
08-26-2003, 02:34 PM
Silva has got knocked down a lot but he has still yet to be totally knocked unconious.....Robbie is too small to do it.

and he said Anderson KOed sparring

i like when robbie said no one could hurt him after the ghosen fight. and then when he said "tell my mom i'm ok" after the spratt fight. robbie sounds like some cali surfer on lean(liquid codeine for all you none southeast texas playas)
08-27-2003, 12:56 PM
unless Robbie transforms into a pudgy Japanese Pro-wrestler or fights his way furiously through a tough bracket to find a fresh Silva at the end this fight will never happen.
08-27-2003, 02:09 PM
Silva would tear Robbie a new one. Robbie vs. Jeremy Jackson would be a more competitive fight for him.
08-27-2003, 02:49 PM
I think if Robbie develops a better defensive game he could be a force to be reckoned with. He throws some bombs, but he has absolutely no defense against leg kicks and such.
08-27-2003, 02:58 PM
almost everyone pro-fighter can ko each other, silva would destroy lawler like nothing
08-27-2003, 03:10 PM
Wanderlei would annihilate Lawler.
08-27-2003, 11:02 PM
when did he say he could ko silva
08-27-2003, 11:51 PM
People using big words they can't even spell...

I'm not the biggest Silva fan, but imo he would KO lawler in under a minute. I still say silva would get KO'd by Liddel though.
08-29-2003, 05:19 PM
I think Liddell would KO Silva too.
