One of the most impressive career comeback stories of recent years, "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (28-11 (1)) captured the UFC's 170lb title against Johny Hendricks in December 2014, and went on to defend the belt twice the following year.

Lawler was last seen in the cage at UFC 214, when he picked up a close decision win over fellow fan favorite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.

Dos Anjos promised to make his fight with Woodley (18-3-1 MMA, 8-2-1 UFC) an entertaining one by pushing the action.

The 32-year-old moved up to 170 from 155 earlier this year after losing the lightweight strap to Eddie Alvarez in July of 2016 and a subsequent unanimous decision loss to current interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson last November.

Dos Anjos (27-9) is on a two-fight win streak, besting Neil Magny via submission and Tarec Saffiedine since moving up to welterweight after a run at lightweight that included a title-winning performance vs. Anthony Pettis.

The other top fight now on the show is Glover Teixeira (26-6) vs. Misha Cirkunov (13-3). As such, this fight could very well produce the welterweight division's next title challenger.

The event will be aired live on CTV TWO and RDS 2.
