POLL: Who Wins At UFC UFC 173, Robbie Lawler Or Jake Ellenberger?


UFC 173 is set to go down just 10 days from now, with a stacked line up for the fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the head of the card is the bantamweight title clash between dominant boss Renan Barao, and surging underdog T.J. Dillashaw. Dan Henderson will look to battle father time as he goes up against Daniel Cormier in the evening’s co-main.

Elsewhere, in the welterweight division, is a main card battle between the rebounding Robbie Lawler and Jake ‘The Juggernaut’ Ellenberger. Both guys are looking to get back in the win column after respective losses to Johny Hendricks and Rory MacDonald. Both guys are known for having heavy hands, and I’m pegging this scrap for an early lock for FOTN.

With that in mind, who do you think wins and how? I’m picking ‘Ruthless’ for the early knockout, as I think he will be on the warpath after his UFC 171 epic with ‘Bigg Rigg’.

  • I think Ellenburger will be on more of a warpath than Lawler… I think Ellenburger's motivation should be at an all time high right now. He wants to come in and make a statement. The problem is, he's facing a TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH fighter! With that said… I think Ellenburger is no joke and to count him outwould be a big mistake. I'm kinda leaning towards Ellenburger, but i have to sleep on it!

  • robbie is in his prime right now, he grew up from young wild beast to experienced well – rounded wild beast. jake is very solid, but no mach to robbie 2014. anyway this fight could easily be main event, because it will be f***ing awesome.

  • Jake by KO mark these words

  • Ellenberger will try to wrestle bang Lawler. Heard it here on lowkick first!!!! 🙂

  • Lawler by knockout.

  • Lawler by KO…. Once Ellenberger stops circling like a hundred times around the Octagon.. He then gets put to sleep… His only chance is to wrestle him down to a decision… Just don't see it happening. Again Lawler by KO.
