Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael dos Anjos to headline UFC on FOX 26

Former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler and former lightweight titleholder Rafael dos Anjos will throw down in a welterweight main event at UFC Fight Night: Lawler vs. dos Anjos on December 16 at Bell MTS Place, the UFC announced on Thursday. In his next most recent outing, he defeated former Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine by decision.

Lawler recently got back in the win column after a high-profile setback, outpointing Donald Cerrone in July at UFC 214.

Dos Anjos, meanwhile, last fought at UFC 215, also in Canada, when he dominated long-time contender Neil Magny to a first-round submission win. Both of those wins by dos Anjos came after he moved up to 170 pounds.

Lawler, who is now ranked as the number one contender for the title, has a 28-11 record with one no contest.
