On Saturday, Dec. 16, the UFC will host UFC on Fox 26: Lawler vs. Dos Anjos from the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

In the night’s main event, a pair of former champions lock horns as former welterweight king Robbie Lawler takes on former lightweight titleholder Rafael dos Anjos. Lawler rebounded from his title defeat to current champion Tyron Woodley by edging Donald Cerrone at UFC 214 in July. After back-to-back losses as a lightweight, the Brazilian dos Anjos has won two straight since moving up to the 170-pound weight class, including a “Performance of the Night” victory over Neil Magny at UFC 215.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two fights streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 4 p.m. ET. Six additional preliminary-card bouts air live on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, followed by the four-fight main card at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

The fighters will hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below
