There was once a time when Robbie Lawler was the undisputed king of the welterweight division. After losing three of his last four fights, Lawler will look to get back on track against Colby Covington at UFC Fight Night from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Also on the main card are veterans Jim Miller and Clay Guida in a lightweight bout.

"Ruthless" Robbie Lawler won the lightweight belt in 2014 and made two title defenses, but hasn't been the same ever since losing to Tyron Woodley at UFC 206. He'll go up against maybe the biggest mouth in the sport in Covington, who welcomes controversy and isn't above getting personal with fighters and fans in his trash talk.
In the second-biggest fight of the night, Miller, who has the record for most wins in the history of UFC's lightweight division, will take on Guida, who has three of his last four fights since returning to lightweight.
With Lawler's punching power and Covington's wrestling skill, expect some blood on the mat in Newark.
