UFC Fight Night®: Lawler vs. Dos Anjos
December 16, 2017
Former welterweight champion and No.1-ranked contender Robbie Lawler (28-11 1NC, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Florida, USA) will look to take another step back towards a title shot when he meets one-time lightweight titleholder and No. 5 ranked welterweight Rafael dos Anjos (27-9, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
A dangerous knockout artist, Lawler has engaged in some of the most memorable bouts in UFC history. During his 170-pound title reign, he earned legendary wins over Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit. Following a loss to current champ Tyron Woodley, he rebounded with a sensational victory over Donald Cerrone in July. Undefeated since moving up to 170 pounds earlier this year, dos Anjos immediately cemented his contender status with an impressive victory over Tarec Saffiedine. He then followed up his welterweight debut with a dominant submission win against Neil Magny.
Fight starts at 2:30p.m.
