Listen: Robbie Lawler, Aspirin, Ben Aspirin discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"And I'll give you some great news that hit me out of left field. Lawler versus t would. Okay, I'm in. I like the match I liked it. The first time that it happened. I fully admitted after the first time it happened that needs to happen again. Right. Robbie lawler. Just lost a world championship from eating one. Big punch. I wonder what would happen in that fight head. He nod eating that punch. What if we would have got some minutes and some exchanges? I don't know. I don't know the answer. But I do remember thinking a rematch should be kind of cool. Not only did not happen. I don't believe it was even discussed. I don't remember it being discussed Robbie Lawler. Most certainly wouldn't be demanded. He's just not that guy. Gimme whoever you got whoever you want. And yes, sure would like to see that that rematch. Come someday. That's just that's just going to be lawler's approach tyrant certainly not going to be calling for. He just wanted championship. He's looking for some new blood. He's looking to go onto defense. So whatever happened there, we never got that rematch. Now when you talk about getting that rematch now sure the championships not on the line. But we now are going to get to see some of those minutes and some of those exchanges. The reason it caught me from left field. I thought aspirin was fighting Robbie Lawler and many of us pushed back on that not because we don't acknowledge that first one was worthy of being seen again had plenty of controversy. Not because that neither fighter really said. Hey, I want to do that again. In fact, aspirin said the other. He goes, I'm not I'm not interested in doing again. I don't want to do it. The first time I got all sorts of guys left. And right. I'm seeing around here that I wanna fight Robbie was never one of them. But he's a great fighter is a former world champion, and they asked me to do it. I you know to great one to get done with. But once we get done, I want some fresh blood okay fair. But who who goes where I like your idea, Ben? Forgive me, a better one. All right. I think in many ways Lawler t would satisfies exactly what aspirin Lawler was going to satisfy in that it was one of those matches that you sat back and you wash you know, what I'd like to see that again a little bit for different reasons. But had this weird scenario not happened. I wonder how long this match what have gone, and I wonder who it would have favored, and I wonder what have been closer. Would it be around for this guy in around for that guy? Now, we gotta really keep our eye on the third. There was just a curiosity around it. I think that this satisfies it. But the other thing that it does is it opens up a door for Ben aspirin. Where's he going to go it appears that he with it appears please he wanted Darren till Darren till got surprised by George. Mas vidal. So perhaps it would appear that aspirin and MAs Vidal get lined up. There seems to be a level of that that makes sense and when faced with that and then faced with the. Question that I just posted. A you guys of if not that idea give me a better. I don't know that I have one I will tell you a few months ago, I wasn't really clamor to see Mazda versus aspirin. I also wasn't fully aware of Mazda was going to stay in the one seventy pound class wasn't aware of Mazda. Vidal for shore was going to get by former number one contender and intimidate was just a lot of moving parts before you're ever sit back and sink your teeth into this MAs Vidal aspirin sandwich here. But now that Woodley and now that lawler's names rof the board now that UIs men and covington's names are off the board. You start to only have so many pieces on the chess table here. I would predict for you guys the fight will at least be offered it would need to then be accepted. But I think it will be offered. I think the winds are very comfortably. And I'm confident telling you guys they're going to blow in the direction of trying to get MAs Vidal and aspirin in there with one another. And I'd like to know what you guys think would like to know what you think.."
