The rumors were true, and it looks like the fans are going to get the fight they have been clamoring for. Media questioned UFC President Dana White this past weekend and asked him if a fight between Rory MacDonald and Robbie Lawler was a possible fight. White just replied that he liked the idea of the bout, but couldn’t say either way. According to the UFC, the fight is now official, and the two will meet at UFC 167. The bout is a prime candidate for co-main event.
UFC 167: St-Pierre Vs Hendricks takes place Saturday November 16 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre will take on number one contender Johny Hendricks for all the welterweight marbles.
