But unlike these cinematic reboots that are incapable of reproducing perfection, mixed martial arts offers pure, unscripted action. That means that a sequel can be better than its original. So when UFC welterweight-kingpin Johny Hendricks and top-contender Robbie Lawler step inside of the Octagon early next year, it's possible that their second toe-to-toe installment will surpass their first.
