Lawler (27-11, 1NC) hasn’t fought since his 2016 championship loss to Tyron Woodley at UFC 201. Prior to that loss, “Ruthless” was riding a five-fight winning streak, including two title defenses against Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit.

Cerrone (32-8, 1NC) is coming off a second round TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 23 in January. Before succumbing to Masvidal, “Cowboy” was riding a four-fight winning streak. Since moving to 170-pounds, Cerrone has gone 4-1, with two ‘Performance of the Night’ honors.

UFC 213 will air on Pay-Per-View, with the preliminary portion of the card on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

UFC 213 goes down on July 8 from the T-Mobile Arena. No other bouts have been announced for the card, but it will be the third of three events during International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
