UFC on Fox 26, which goes down on December 16 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, now has a headliner - and it is absolute dynamite.

Former UFC champions Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos will meet in a five-round welterweight main event on December 16 in Winnipeg, per UFC officials. The pivotal welterweight battle between former Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholders on Thursday was made official.

Tickets are set to go on sale on October 20 at 10 a.m.

Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, meanwhile, has seen something of a resurgence since moving up to welterweight. Victories over Carlos Condit, Rory MacDonald, Johny Hendricks, Matt Brown and Jake Ellenberger highlight the Lawler resume, which includes a 602-day reign as UFC welterweight champion. After being knocked out by Tyron Woodley at UFC 201 in July 2016, he spent a year away from the cage before returning at UFC 214 this past July.

ESPN.com ranks Lawler and dos Anjos the Nos.

As a result, the team was able to pick up certain things about the dwarf planet, including the possibility of having a ring. Astronomers have made an unexpected discovery about Haumea , a mysterious dwarf planet on the edge of our solar system .

Dos Anjos, 27-9, is ranked fifth in the division.

Since then, having moved up to welterweight, he's 2-0 with wins over former Strikeforce champ Tarec Saffiedine and Neil Magny. This is a fight that has the potential to be fantastic, and the victor, could very well lock up a title shot.

Cirkunov, who fights out of Toronto by way of Riga, Latvia, will be looking to avenge a loss to Volkan Oezdemir, which happened on the same night Teixeira lost to Gustafsson.

The other top fight now on the show is Glover Teixeira (26-6) vs. Misha Cirkunov (13-3).
