Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 is the 2015 fight of the year and it’s also MMA’s version of a high class oil painting. 100 years from now MMA scholars will teach University classes about the finer points of Bob Lawler vs. the Canadian Psycho. If ever a fight needed to be immortalized on a blank canvas and hung over your fireplace it has to involve Lawler’s will to win as well as MacDonald’s heart.
Thanks to artist Adam Nelson (@GorillaTheBear on Twitter) Lawler and MacDonald now have a drawing fit to be on the cover of Life magazine in the 1950s and or Pro Wrestling Illustrated circa 1982. MMA performed at the highest levels is a beautiful thing and it’s also art. Stay classy Robbie and Rory.
