Lawler will headline UFC on Fox 26 opposite Rafael dos
Anjos on Dec. 16 at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The
pivotal welterweight battle between former Ultimate Fighting
Championship titleholders on Thursday was made official.
Now operating out of Henri Hooft’s Combat Club, Lawler has won six
of his past seven bouts, a knockout loss to Tyron
Woodley his only misstep. The 35-year-old last appeared at UFC
214 in July, when he was awarded a three-round unanimous decision
Cerrone at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Victories
Hendricks, Matt Brown
Ellenberger highlight the Lawler resume, which includes a
602-day reign as UFC welterweight champion.
Dos Anjos has looked like a new man since he moved up to 170
pounds. The Evolve MMA rep has rattled off back-to-back wins
Saffiedine and Neil Magny
following his Nov. 5 defeat to Tony
Ferguson. Dos Anjos, 32, has delivered nearly half (14) of his
27 career victories by knockout, technical knockout or submission.
