Lawler Looks To Silence All The Doubters

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler wants to 'prove you wrong ... again' at UFC 189
By Brad Popkin, mmamania.com

Robbie Lawler feels he needs to take care of a little "unfinished business" in UFC 189's co-main event, put an exclamation point on the rematch to avoid a potential trilogy fight.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight titleholder is set to make his first title defense against the man he previously bested via split-decision at UFC 167 in Nov. 2013, Rory MacDonald. "Ruthless" earned a shot at the 170-pound crown with the victory over "Canadian Psycho," and eventually won it in a close contest over Johny Hendricks at UFC 181 in Dec. 2014.
 
He will now aim for a more definitive win over the striking tactician MacDonald, even though he is somehow currently considered the sportsbook underdog.
