UFC on Fox 26 – Lawler vs dos Anjos Fight Live
The UFC will be holding its last event of 2017 this weekend in a UFC on FOX event featuring top two welterweight contenders Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael Dos Anjos. This fight is being described as a welterweight eliminator, meaning the winner of this one is highly likely to challenge Tyron Woodley for the title.
Lawler vs. Dos Anjos has all the ingredients necessary for a great fight with both men known for being hard-nosed but high-level strikers who always put on exciting fights. Robbie Lawler has taken part in some of the best fights in UFC history while Rafael Dos Anjos has very fast hands and a brutal striking style that has left the likes of Donald Cerrone reeling in the face of the Brazilian whirlwind.
Actually, the entire fight card looks exciting with a lot of matchups between tough fighters who love to stand up and hate to quit. Many of these fights would be completely appropriate on a pay-per-view event even though we’ll be watching this one free on TV.
It all goes down on Saturday, 16 December at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg. The fights begin at 8 PM ET and 1 AM GMT. You can watch it on FOX in the United States and BT Sport in the UK. For television coverage in other markets, see the official UFC on FOX 26 page here.
