Lawler-MacDonald II Set for UFC 189

 
The 2015 edition of International Fight Week in Las Vegas won't just have a Brazilian and Irish flavor, as the UFC 189 card on July 11 featuring the featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor now has a second championship bout, with the United States' Robbie Lawler defending his UFC welterweight crown against Canada's Rory MacDonald.

The bout, which is a rematch of a 2013 bout won by Lawler, was announced by UFC president Dana White at a Las Vegas press conference on Wednesday. UFC 189 will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
