DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – The last time Robbie Lawler was in Dallas he was holding court at The American Airlines Center, giving UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks the fight of his life.
Lawler lost a very close unanimous decision on that March 2014 night, but a technical knock out over Jake Ellenberger two months later has kept him in the #1 contender’s spot for the 170 pound belt.
With Hendricks on the shelf due to injury, the wide open frontier that has become The UFC’s welterweight division in the wake of the retirement of champion Georges St. Pierre is not short of potential top contenders’ match ups.
There is no such match up more anticipated than the main event pairing of Robbie Lawler (#1 UFC) and Matt Brown (#5 UFC) on Saturday night’s UFC card in San Jose that will air free on network television (FOX, 7:00 pm central).
