Lawler vs. Ellenberger Heads to UFC 173

Welterweight sluggers to square off in Las Vegas this May
The UFC 173 card on May 24 has seen plenty of changes this week, but a welcome addition is certainly the verbally agreed to welterweight matchup between crowd-pleasing knockout artists Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger.

Lawler is coming off his instant classic with Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 earlier this month, and Ellenberger drew the assignment after his UFC 172 opponent, Tarec Saffiedine, was forced out of the April 26 bout due to injury.

And no matter how they got to this May matchup, rest assured that Las Vegas will see 170-pound fireworks in the Octagon.
