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

Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael dos Anjos headlines UFC on FOX 26 in Winnipeg

Robbie Lawler will headline UFC on Fox 26 opposite Rafael dos Anjos on December 16 at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Standing in his way is another former world champion looking to cement his own place at the top of the division. The event's main card, including the Lawler vs. dos Anjos headliner, airs live on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. He surrendered his title to current champ Tyron Woodley in June 2016, but has since rebounded with a decision win over Donald Cerrone in July.

Lawler, who is now ranked as the number one contender for the title, has a 28-11 record with one no contest. UFC Winnipeg, otherwise known as UFC on Fox 26, takes place December 16. Both of those wins by dos Anjos came after he moved up to 170 pounds.

Deadline Is Friday To Register To Vote In November
Candidates for local offices and the State Supreme Court will be on the ballot, along with three statewide ballot propositions. The budget will be presented to the Ashtabula County Board of Commissioners at an October 23 work session.

Lawler has fought in some of the UFC's all-time great wars, including wins over Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit.

Canadian light-heavyweight Misha Cirkunov (13-3) will take on No. 3 American-based Brazilian Glover Teixeira, the UFC also announced Thursday in a release.

This comes after an unnamed academic in Italy won a legal case over taking two days off from work to care for her ailing dog. They cited an allowance for absences that can be categorized as "serious or family personal reasons", The Guardian writes.

Dos Anjos (27-9) is on a two-fight win streak, besting Neil Magny via submission and Tarec Saffiedine since moving up to welterweight after a run at lightweight that included a title-winning performance vs. Anthony Pettis. This is a fight that has the potential to be fantastic, and the victor, could very well lock up a title shot. Cirkunov had won eight fights in a row before being knocked out in 28 seconds by Volkan Oezdemir on May 28th in Stockholm.
