Two of the most seasoned fighters in the UFC welterweight division will finally cross paths. Former UFC champion Robbie Lawler returns to action against veteran Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC 282 on Dec. 10. The location and venue for the event have not yet been confirmed. MMA Junkie verified the booking with multiple sources that have knowledge of the matchup following an initial report from ESPN on Tuesday. The two men were previously scheduled to meet at UFC 245 in 2019, but the bout fell through after an injury to Ponzinibbio.
