Lawler, MacDonald and the “Fight of the Ever”

With both Lawler and MacDonald entering UFC 189 in the midst of three-fight winning streaks, the stage was set for the champion’s first title defense. A rematch of their UFC 167 battle, the results will ultimately go down as a thing of legend.
UFC welterweights Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald were unavailable for comment after their UFC 189 Fight of the Night. The pair was immediately transported to the hospital following an epic battle.

But new interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor and President Dana White were quick to sing the praises of the 170-pound athletes, cementing the contest as one of the finest in promotional history.
