MacDonald vs. Lawler Booked for 167

Welterweights Rory MacDonald and Robbie Lawler to meet at the UFC's 20th anniversary fight.
The old school meets the new breed at UFC 167 on November 16 in Las Vegas, as the resurgent "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler meets Canada's Rory "Ares" MacDonald.
 
After returning to the UFC in 2013 following a more than eight year absence, Lawler has looked better than ever in knocking out Josh Koscheck and Bobby Voelker. The 24-year-old MacDonald is currently sporting a five-fight winning streak that includes wins over BJ Penn and Jake Ellenberger, but he has yet to face someone with the power of Iowa's Lawler, making this a must-see welterweight battle. "We like that fight," said UFC president Dana White during a media event last week.
 
UFC 167 takes place Saturday, November 16 as part of the UFC's 20th anniversary celebration and is headlined by a welterweight title bout between longtime champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks. Tickets are on sale now.
