Lawler: Jacare 'will have no choice but to stand'

by Dave Mandel | source: sherdog.com
 

“He’ll have no choice but to stand,” Lawler said recently during a “Savage Dog Show” interview on the Sherdog Radio Network. “That’s what I plan on doing. I’m forcing him to stand and seeing how good his standup is.”

“I like being the underdog. “I like being the guy who people think is going to lose and I want to prove them wrong.”

"(Training partners Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson and C.B. Dollaway are) just big guys, athletic, good wrestlers and guys who are hungry and who are all bigger than me. Just drilling with guys who were All-American wrestlers, guys who implement that into their game plan, just working out with those guys has made me get better by leaps and bounds.”

“I believe if anyone stands, it’s just a matter of time before I catch them. I believe I’m better on standup. He’s a really good athlete. He’s explosive. His takedowns are real explosive and he’s got a judo background. I just have to keep it where I want to and not make any mistakes and take advantage of it being on the feet.”

“ITwo guys, one guy not wanting to give up the belt and one guy going in there to take the belt. It’s going to be a battle.”

If shields can submit lawler in 2 minutes there's no reason jacare can't, and jacare has better striking to set up the takedowns. Jacare by sub.

I like that Lawler character, he's good people. I'm still not giving him much chance against the gator though.
