Tarec Saffiedine-Robbie Lawler In Works For UFC On FOX 8

The former – and last – Strikeforce welterweight champion could be returning to action in July, as is reporting that Tarec Saffiedine will face Robbie Lawler.

The bout would be part of the UFC on FOX 8 event from Seattle on July 27. Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger was announced on Wednesday.

Saffiedine (14-3) turned down a short-notice fight earlier this year, citing several nagging injuries. He won the belt in January, defeating Nate Marquardt.

Lawler (20-9) made a triumphant return to the UFC earlier this year, defeating Josh Koscheck. In two stints with the promotion, he has gone 5-3.
