Former teammates are face-to-face on the poster for the UFC’s upcoming trip to Newark, New Jersey.

Former welterweight titleholders Colby Covington and Robbie Lawler are featured in an intense staredown on the promotional material for the Aug. 3 event that was released Tuesday.

Covington puts his six-fight win streak on the line against Lawler, a man who used to train alongside Covington at the American Top Team gym in Florida. “Ruthless” recently parted ways with the team, and a win over Covington could vault him back into the thick of the title hunt.

UFC Newark takes place Prudential Center in Newark, with the main card airing live on ESPN.

See the updated card below (bout order to be determined):

Colby Covington vs. Robbie Lawler

Volkan Oezdemir vs. Ilir Latifi

Jim Miller vs. Clay Guida

Mickey Gall vs. Salim Touahri

Joaquim Silva vs. Nasrat Haqparast

Jordan Espinosa vs. Matt Schnell

Lauren Murphy vs. Mara Romero Borella

Antonina Shevchenko vs. Lucie Pudilova

Trevin Giles vs. Gerald Meerschaert

Darko Stosic vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu

Ramazan Emeev vs. Claudio Silva

Scott Holtzman vs. Dong Hyun Ma
