With this week’s announcement of Hendricks vs. Brown the UFC’s welterweight division got a major shakeup.
Rory MacDonald vs. Hector Lombard is expected to be announced soon, and what’s next for the new champ Robbie Lawler has been up in the air.
Wednesday night on FOX Sports 1, the UFC Tonight crew passed on a message from the UFC boss.
“I talked to UFC president Dana White about the situation, and he told me Lawler said he needs time off, Johny wants stay active, and Matt Brown needed a fight. So they put Johny vs. Brown. Then Rory MacDonald fights Hector Lombard in Montreal a month later. Then after those two fights, we’ll see what makes sense for the title fight. So that title shot is very much up in the air.”
