The UFC heads north of the border for its final Fox card of the year once it puts up the Octagon in Winnipeg on December 16. The main event features Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos — two former winners with aggressive, crowd-pleasing fashions — at a bout that could go a long way to determining the upcoming welterweight title challenger.
The card top to bottom should be stacked to the brim with endings with the likes of Mike Perry, Santiago Ponzinibbio and Oluwale Bamgbose scheduled to compete.
Robbie Lawler vs Rafael Dos Anjos
Robbie Lawler (-110) is the definition of an exciting fighter. The southpaw moves nicely with his feet and angles incredibly well as a result of his wealth of experience from the Octagon.

“Ruthless” is essentially a sprawl-and-brawler. He has solid defensive wrestling that’s backed up by his openness to punish opponents who shoot for his or her legs. Only rarely will you see him take for a takedown himself however he’s capable of doing so.
Rafael dos Anjos (-120) is mainly a pressure fighter who excels in dictating the speed of the struggle. Dos Anjos typically functions supporting a constant pumping jab and a few barbarous leg kicks.
