2015 fight of the year is… Lawler vs MacDonald 2!

Robbie Lawler became MMA’s Cindarella Man in December 2014, by winning the UFC title well over a decade after his first UFC run. But it hasn’t ended there for him.

The fight that earned him his first title shot was a split decision win over top contender- Rory Macdonald. Well, Rory earned a rematch and it was amazing.

After 4 back and forth, brutal rounds and being down on the scorecards Lawler came back in round 5 to score the KO and defend his title for the first time. Lawler’s only fight of 2015 was the best of anyone’s.

And after a fight of the year last year against Hendricks and  kicking 2016 off with a bang defending his title against Condit in another fight of the year candidate- it’s clear that Lawler may be the most exciting man in MMA.
