“I wasn’t too disturbed about it. Obviously that was a large fight. He’s a large pull though it wouldn’t have been good for him,” Lawler pronounced about a McGregor quarrel when vocalization to WSB-TV in Atlanta on Wednesday.

When asked to enhance on since things wouldn’t have finished good for McGregor, Lawler pronounced that if he harm McGregor on a feet a same approach Diaz did, he would have kept overhanging until there was zero left.

“Cause if we harm him, we wasn’t holding his neck,” Lawler said.

Lawler went on to contend that he’s not as good as Diaz and McGregor wouldn’t have been means to daub out during a finish of a quarrel since he’d be unconscious.

“I’m a lot opposite than many people and he found a approach out,” Lawler said. “Diaz took his neck and was good to him. I’m only revelation it like it is and how we saw it.”

Throughout Lawler’s icy answer, his opponent, Tyron Woodley, sat only a few feet away, listening as a champion likely how he would have distant a Irishman if they met. Now Woodley will have to be a male to try to stop Lawler when they accommodate in a categorical eventuality during UFC 201 in Atlanta on Jul 30.
