Don't expect anyone at Team Takedown to break out the party hats over a championship rematch against Robbie Lawler, but at least it's better than having to go through another Georges St. Pierre camp.

When you fight Georges St. Pierre, you don't have to be worried about getting knocked out.

That's according to Marc Laimon, who will once again prepare Johny Hendricks for a welterweight title fight against Robbie Lawler, after the "Ruthless" contender disposed of Matt Brown in the UFC on FOX 12 main event last Saturday night (July 26, 2014) in San Jose, California (watch it).

He's not over-the-moon about a repeat training camp, but as Laimon told MMA Junkie, it's better than having to re-watch tape on the former division kingpin.

"The immediate rematch is always kind of like, eh, again. But I think Lawler, he's earned it. He's been on a tear since losing to Johny. You can't say he doesn't deserve this. It's better than having to watch (former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre's) matches again. With Lawler, even when he's hurt, he finds a way to knock people out. A guy like that keeps you on your A-game."

Hendricks took a tremendous amount of punishment from Lawler in their first go-round back at UFC 171 last March; however, "Bigg Rigg" did a much better job of mixing up his attack, and may have sealed the deal with a couple of well-placed takedowns.

And having a busted bicep certainly didn't help his cause.

But any questions about who won that title fight in "The Lone Star State" will be answered in early 2015, which is right around the same time St. Pierre will begin training on his surgically-repaired leg.

A-game vs. Eh-game.
