Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Lawler vs. Condit Official for UFC 193, Hendricks vs. Woodley a Go for UFC 192

To quote Uproxx’s Jessica Hudnall, VIOLENCE, WOO!!!

Fresh off their crowd-pleasing, uber-violent wins over Rory MacDonald and Thiago Alves, respectively, the UFC announced via UFC Tonight yesterday that welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will defend his title against Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 193 on November 14th in Melbourne, Australia. Said an official UFC spokesman:

With the next welterweight champion set to be determined in November, you’re probably wondering, “Well, who will be the next NEXT challenger?! I need to know NOW!!!” First off, calm down and stop being so goddamn needy, and secondly, the UFC is already one step and a few billion dollars ahead of you…

That’s because it was also announced on UFC Tonight that Johny Hendricks and his high school gym teacher dadbod will take on Tyron Woodley and his completely opposite of that physique just one month prior at UFC 192, with the winner most likely receiving a shot (or another, in Hendricks’ case) at UFC gold.

After losing his title via a somewhat controversial split decision to Lawler in their rematch at UFC 181, Hendricks bounced back with a big win over the always dangerous, always gritty Matt Brown at UFC 185. Woodley, meanwhile, has not fought since nabbing a split decision win over TUF 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum in a catchweight bout at UFC 183.

UFC 192 goes down on October 3rd from the Toyota Center in Houston Texas and is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson.

And finally in fight booking news, it appears that Diego Sanchez will be dropping down to featherweight for his next contest, where he will be given no easy test against former title challenger Ricardo Lamas at Fight Night 79. Sanchez, who has changed weight classes to save his career about half a dozen times by now, has not fought since stealing an absolutely unforgivable split decision win away from Ross Pearson back in June of 2014 using his patented “Swing Wildly, Land Nothing, But Keep Pressing Forward” attack (more commonly known as “Come at me, bro”-fu).

Lamas last fought in the main event of Fight Night 63, where he was TKO’d by Chad Mendes in the first round, snapping a two-fight win streak he had built since his title loss to Jose Aldo and proving once and for all that Full Training Camp Mendes > Motivated BJ Penn > Chuck Liddell With That Look in His Eyes. I don’t make up the rules, Nation. I just think them up and write them down.

Featuring a main event matchup between Matt Brown and Kelvin Gastelum, Fight Night 79 takes place on November 21st at the Monterrey Arena in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
