Robbie Lawler Gets New Opponent For UFC On FOX 8

Robbie Lawler will not be facing Siyar Bahadurzada at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga later this month. Instead, “Ruthless” will meet Bobby Voelker.

The bout is likely to remain on the main card. The event goes down July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle.

Bahadurzada (21-5-1) suffered an injury in training and was forced out of the match. He was coming off a decision loss to Dong Hyun Kim earlier this year.

Lawler (20-9) will be receiving his third different opponent for the card, as he was originally set to face Tarec Saffiedine. He earned a TKO win over Josh Koscheck in his return to the Octagon this past February.

Voelker (24-9) is also a former Strikeforce fighter. He was defeated by Patrick Cote in his UFC debut in March.
