    Khabib vs Tony. This time Khabib would get injured.

    It's pretty funny, I joined this forum to get in the Rampage/Wand threads. Everyone was counting out Rampage and the "Wanderlei washed him up" type resposnes were like a meme.

    10+ years later, I've having the same damned conversations.

    Down 2-0, people telling me Rory is done, with his busted nose, while his opponent is the one that wilts away.

    I mean ok sure. I get anything can happen in a fight but Rory got two chances. In two chances he couldn't do it and suffered horrific damage trying. Seems most delusional to say a series favors the guy that couldn't find a way to win once.

    I must have missed when Lawler fought A top ranked hw suffering a brutal ko, then quickly turned around and fought a top lhw suffering another brutal ko. It's almost like the circumstances aren't remotely the same and it's a pretty poor example.


    Weird you didn't know that when you spend so much time here educating plebs apparently.

    Oops, yeah I did mean Ken.


    And yeah I woulda liked to have seen a rematch. It would have been awesome if Frank had gone to Pride as well, some great match-ups there as well. Frank vs Wanderlei would have been epic. Or Frank vs Rampage.

    Maybe I'm wrong about Rory/Lawler. Maybe I was wrong about Page/Wand, but Wand got old and it worked out for me. Who cares? Why you so salty? lol

    I didn't say these situations are exactly the same. You're really trying hard to get me to say something I didn't. Like "these beatings are good for Rory", how the hell did you get that one btw?

    I was only commenting how after 10 years, I'm still defending a guy that's down 0-2, and maybe that suggests something, like I'm desperate for a underdog.

    I'm not "salty" it just seemed like a silly thing to say. It's one thing when there's a flash ko or someone loses early in their career.


    Rory was experienced by the time they fought. They fought twice, a decision and a fight that went over four rounds. Nobody slipped on a banana peel. Rory definitely took the worse damage between the two fights.


    Given all that it seems strange to say well next time he'll get em. Even within the context of this thread.

    Cool. They fought twice and judges gave more rounds to Rory.

    Crazy opinion that he could win if given another chance? Fine, call me crazy.

    Rory vs Lawler. It was obvious Lawler was on the Juice when they fought the second time

    I still think Babalu was more skilled than Chuck and should have won both fights. I think the the "Iceman" mystic over came him.
