The famous UFC announcer Bruce Buffer, photographed in action moments before the fight starts. This Saturday's UFC on Fox card in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada is absolutely stacked. It's almost hard to believe that Jose Aldo was slated to be on this card as well, at least until he was pulled to face Max Holloway.

That being said, this Saturday night's card is still very stacked. All four of the main card fights should be plenty of fun, and there is plenty to like on the undercard as well.

The main event will see two former champions square off, as Robbie Lawler is set to battle Rafael dos Anjos.

Robbie Lawler is looking to move his way back up the Welterweight title ladder with a win over dos Anjos. Lawler's most recent victory was an unanimous decision win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 214 in July of 2017. Prior to that, Lawler dropped the Welterweight title to Tyron Woodley.

Rafael dos Anjos is in the midst of a two fight win streak that includes wins over Neil Magny and Tarec Saffiedine. Dos Anjos moved to the Welterweight division two fights ago and has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success. It will be interesting, however, to see how Dos Anjos' power translates against a heavier opponent in Robbie Lawler.


Dos Anjos is an accomplished grappler who is comfortable anywhere the fight goes.

Lawler, on the other hand, is a brawler with an iron chin that is almost impossible to put away.
