Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald staredown pic, video for UFC 189 in Las Vegas

Hey, remember us?

While all the attention has been focused on the featherweight championship (UFC) showdown between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor, there's another stellar title fight locked and loaded for the upcoming UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV) event on July 11, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald.

"Ruthless" will put his 170-pound title on the line against "Red King" in a rematch from their UFC 167 fight in late 2013, one that saw Lawler walk away with a close split-decision win after three back-and-forth rounds. This time they'll have five, and the winner will be crowned king of the welterweights.

And you can bet a MacDonald victory would line him up for a Johny Hendricks fight and all but solidify this prediction.
