At UFC 189, Robbie Lawler successfully made his first title defense against Rory MacDonald. Both fighters battled for almost five rounds in one of the most memorable fights in recent UFC history. That night, Lawler defeated MacDonald via technical knockout at 1:00 of round number five.
Now, Lawler is scheduled to defend his welterweight title for third time against fellow American Top Team teammate Tyron Woodley. Both fighters are set to battle in the main event of UFC 201 on July 30.
