Two big fights added to UFC on FOX 26

Two big fights added to UFC on FOX 26

It was recently announced that Robbie Lawler would be taking on Rafael Dos Anjos as the main event at UFC on FOX 26 in Winnipeg, Canada on the 16th December.

Another two big match ups have been announced with Jose Aldo meeting Ricardo Lamas for a second time and Santiago Ponzinibbio taking on Mike Perry.

Former Featherweight champ Aldo (26-3) makes his return to the cage after his loss to Max Holloway while Lamas (18-5) is coming off of two wins, a submission over Charles Oliveira and KO over Jason Knight.

The pair first met in 2014 with Aldo taking the win via unanimous decision in what was his 6th defence of his title.

The other match up sees a coming together of two up and comers in the welterweight division. We last saw Ponzinibbio (25-3) knock out Gunnar Nelson in 82 seconds in July in Glasgow to extend his winning streak to five.

Mike Perry (11-1) has recently broken into the top 15 of the UFC ranking and will be looking to move into the top 10 with a win over Ponzinibbio, he had called out Robbie Lawler but a fight against Ponzinibbio, who is sitting 9th in the welterweight division, would seem to make more sense.
