The former – and last – Strikeforce welterweight champion could be returning to action in July, as MMAjunkie.com 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.
