UFC on Fox 8 is starting to come together as it was announced that Robbie Lawler will be facing off against Tarec Saffiedine in Seattle. The former Strikforce fighters have a great opportunity to move up the rankings and continue their momentum.

Robbie Lawler recently defeated Josh Koscheck at UFC 157 by TKO at 3:57 of round one. He’s alternated between wins and losses throughout his career as a middleweight before making the cut to welterweight. A win over Saffiedine would prove that he is a top ten quality welterweight and a threat to the division.

Tarec  Saffiedine is the final Strikeforce Welterweight Champion as he soundly defeated Nate Marquardt by unanimous decision. He was in the main event of the last Strikeforce card and looks to build on the momentum that he has received lately. He’s currently on a four fight winning streak and a win here will put him a fight or two away from the title.
