People are calling this fight of the year? I saw two dudes stand in the pocket and trade pretty standard boxing. Had Robbie thrown some kicks of his own or pushed for it when he rocked Hendricks he'd have a belt tonight. Regardless FOTY? Nah good fight but it wasn't like Shogun vs Hendo or Jones vs Gus special to me. Phone Post 3.0

I won't disagree that it's fight of the year thus far. It just didn't amaze me as much as it has everyone else. Still a good fight. Phone Post 3.0

That's a FOTY candidate - ridiculously awesome fight. Wow. Paddycakes - yeah right; if that means trying to take someone head off every 20 seconds then yeah.

Great fight until that final takedown.  "Oh, I'm just going to hold this guy's legs for 90 seconds and win."  Big Dan stands there sweating HGH and dreaming of Sister Steele's thighs, fight over.

Its kind of fight of the year in the sense of its only the third main event of 2014 and it was better than the Faber fight and better than the Rhonda fight.

The importance of the bout and the action make it a default foty so far in a very shallow pool.

As far as in cage action there have been better fights this year, better fights this weekend. better main event this weekend in that other org. Phone Post 3.0

ITS A SPORT.

RUNNING OUT THE CLOCK IS A PART OF SPORTS. Cant believe how much shit people are kicking up over Hendricks fight winning take down at the end of the 5th Round. Phone Post 3.0

I'm not knocking Hendricks for doing what he had to do to get the title.  But the end of the fight clearly disqualifies it from being a FOTY candidate for me.  The fight ended on a dud.

Well imo Hendricks had it locked up before the takedown. Robbie hit him with a couple of nice shots and then went full on potato and just let Hendricks punch him in the face. The takedown to me was something where he figured he already had it and it was the icing on the cake. Phone Post 3.0

Wwzzjj92 - Lawler secured the win anyways by winning the first four rounds.

In foot ball if the score is 28-0 and the other team scores a TD, that's not enough to win.

I voted OP down. Phone Post 3.0
