He could well be overrated but there's no denying that he's looking pretty unstoppable at the moment. His control of distance is among the best in the UFC. If Lawler gets through Woodley I think Wonderboy would definitely have a good chance of taking the belt from him.

Wonderboy fought a very smart fight against Rory and didn't let Rory take it to ground and dictate it from there. I'd be confident that he'd plan accordingly for Robbie too.
