Robbie Lawler is one of those guys that when you hear that he’s gonna be fighting, you immediately pay attention. Robbie might not be a world beater, but Robbie is pretty much incapable of having a boring or lackluster fight. When Robbie steps into the ring, fireworks tend to follow, which is all that the UFC can really ask for. According to a recent report, Robbie Lawler is set to square off against Rory MacDonald at UFC 167, which would make for a rather interesting bout.
Several days after UFC President Dana White confirmed that the promotion would book a fight between Rory MacDonald (15-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) and Robbie Lawler (21-9 MMA, 6-3 UFC), MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned the fight is targeted for UFC 167, which takes place Nov. 16 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. While verbal agreements are in place, contracts have yet to be signed.
