Videohype: Lawler vs. Manhoef by Genghis Con, Chael Sonnen Is Supposed to Lose + More


(Props: GenghisConMMA via BloodyElbow)

Of Robbie Lawler‘s 18 wins, 15 have come via KO/TKO; of Melvin Manhoef‘s 24 wins, 23 have come via KO/TKO. We may not agree with Lawler’s strategy going into tomorrow night’s fight, but sometimes you just have to say "fuck it, this is going to be a slugfest, and it’s going to be awesome." Genghis Con‘s preview compilation for the middleweight battle captures that spirit perfectly. Lawler vs. Manhoef is going to end with somebody staring at the ceiling, the owner of a brand-new concussion. The only questions are: Who will it be, and how long will it last?

After the jump: Wes Sims makes it very clear why he’s such an enormous underdog against Bobby Lashley, and Chael Sonnen takes a break from his homophobic Republican heel routine to speak candidly about his upcoming UFC 109 matchup with Nate Marquardt, which will very likely produce the UFC’s next middleweight title challenger.

Melvin's taking this one (imo), the highlight reel was very nice.

Slow server, double post.

Dude those were some sick knockouts by both guys. I think the last person I saw take a shot to mouth like that was Jenna Jameson.

I hope Robbie does stand with Manhoef.
If Manhoef can out strike Robbie then I'll start paying that hype some mind.

@ mma saumrai - ha ha ha ha oh yes I was just waiting for Sims to start with the muh muh muh muh! His new nickname is simple Wes.

...And Sakuraba knows about vicious knockouts and Melvin Manhoef.

My God that last KnockOut was vicious.

That last K1 highlight for Melvin is downright poetic. His opponent was out - utterly unconscious - on the way down and Melvin kicked his lifeless body into the ropes. Def one of my favorite knockouts of all time.

Robbie may have heavy hands. But his kickboxing has nothing on Melvin's.

Melvin def Robbie via wrecking ball to the cranial region 3:30 of the first round.

I think people are underestimating Lawlor a bit, but then again Manhoef is the fricken Mike Tyson of MMA. All I know is, this is gonna be a kickass fight. Im more excited for it, then the last couple UFC matchups. Keep it going Strikeforce, keep it going.

P.S. - Lawlors UFC days were awesome, man did he kick ass.

I kinda want to see Sims win just for the leg drop at the end.
mmaniac22- January 29, 2010 at 7:27 am
Robbery Lawyer better be well prepared for this one cause Melvin is going to steal your head off!!!
MMA42- January 29, 2010 at 7:27 am
Wes Sims: Giving A.D.D. kids hope for years. I would so pay to see him give Lashley a leg drop
Art Gibs- January 29, 2010 at 7:16 am
Sonnen is such a douche. I'll be so happy when Marquardt beats him down.
caffn8d- January 29, 2010 at 7:04 am
Wrye Bash, dude, that's how Wes always sounds. "I might test his strength" Heh... had to chuckle.
