Tom Lawlor vs Jason MacDonald on tap for upcoming UFC event on May 15 in Fairfax

Looks like Tom Lawlor will have to put down those shot glasses and get his "Filthy" self back in the gym now that UFC officials have announced his return to the cage for May 15, 2012.

That's when he'll take on Canadian "Athlete" Jason MacDonald in an upcoming UFC event planned for the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia. The fight card does not have a name as of yet, but is rumored to be the next UFC on FX event (number three for those of you keeping score at home).

Lawlor (7-4) is coming off a first round submission loss to UFC on Fox 2 fighter Chris Weidman. His "All American" defeat put him at 3-3 inside the Octagon, but all three of his losses have come within the span of his last four fights.

Time to right the ship or risk going overboard.

The surgically-repaired MacDonald (25-15) made a triumphant return to the cage against Ryan Jensen at UFC 129; however, he was mere cannon fodder for the "Talent" of Alan Belcher at UFC Fight Night 25 last September. He was already released once by the UFC, so this could be another do-or-die fight for the Edmonton native.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more details to this upcoming fight card as they become available.
