Tarec Saffiedine Out, Siyar Bahadurzada In Vs. Robbie Lawler At UFC On FOX 8

Robbie Lawler has a new opponent for UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga, as Tarec Saffiedine has been forced out.

In place of the last Strikeforce welterweight champion will be Siyar Bahadurzada. The two are set to collide July 27 from Seattle and will be part of the main card.

Bahadurzada (21-5-1) confirmed news of the fight on Twitter, and UFC officials have since announced the change, as well. He is 1-1 in his UFC career.

Lawler made a triumphant return to the Octagon earlier this year from Strikeforce, finishing Josh Koscheck. He is 20-9 in his career.
