Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Robbie Lawler is just one victory away from getting his Tyron Woodley rematch, after coughing up the crown to “The Chosen One” at UFC 201 back in July 2016.
The means to that end is a definitive win over ex-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, who finagled a “Ruthless” showdown for the 170-pound main event of UFC on FOX 26, which takes place on Sat., Dec. 16, 2017, inside Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
What version of Lawler shows up on fight night could determine the fate of Dos Anjos. The “Ruthless” who ended Rory MacDonald is likely going to go home with his hand raised, while the hot-and-cold striker who squeaked to a decision against Carlos Condit and Donald Cerrone could be in trouble.
