The 15-1 MacDonald has made a habit out of out-classing apt adversaries and could very well add Lawler to the list at UFC 167. However, he’s never faced someone possessing the 21-9 slugger’s power mixed with aggression, and there’s a good chance Lawler will land at least one stiff shot on MacDonald in the match-up. If such comes to pass and MacDonald remains upright it will say a lot about his toughness on top of general talent; if he crumbles it will create serious doubts about his long-term prospects while also pushing Lawler into the spotlight as a potential title-contender.
November is a busy month for MMA fans thanks to a quartet of UFC cards on top of all the sport’s other goings-on. However, while the schedule may be stacked, the quality of the match-ups hasn’t suffered as a result with more than a few match-ups earning a “must see” tag. Here’s a look at ten of the top tilts on deck for November scheduled to take place at UFC Fight Night 31, UFC Fight Night 32, UFC 167, or the Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale.
