While UFC 138 is still months away fights are being made for the card with Tom Lawlor agreeing to face Chris Weidman in November.
UFC officials confirmed the new bout on Saturday.
Tom Lawlor was originally scheduled to fight at UFC on Versus 5 in August, but a training injury pushed him out of his bout against Kyle Noke.
Instead, Lawlor will come back in November at UFC 138, which is currently rumored for San Jose, CA and face Matt Serra student Chris Weidman.
Training under former welterweight champion Matt Serra, New York fighter Chris Weidman will try to keep his record perfect when he faces Lawlor in November.
Currently 2-0 in the UFC, Weidman has shown strong submission skills and solid stand-up thus far and will attempt to keep the same momentum going in his next fight.
While UFC 138 hasn’t officially been announced, it’s expected that heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will return and defend his belt against Junior Dos Santos as the main event for the fight card.
