UFC News: Tom Lawlor to battle Fabio Maldonado in Brazil

Tom Lawlor -- UFC light heavyweight and co-host of "Filthy Four Daily" with Bryan Alvarez -- has his next fight booked: a tilt with Fabio Maldonado on November 7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It was announced first on Brazil's Combate Channel.

The fight was agreed to a while ago, but not officially announced until today. The fight will be on the undercard of Dan Henderson vs. Vitor Belfort III, along with the newly announced co-main event of Glover Teixeira vs. Patrick Cummins. The Lawlor fight is expected to be on the main card of the event, a Fox Sports 1 show.

The 32-year-old Lawlor (10-5-0-1) returned to action for the first time in two years on UFC on FOX in July, knocking out Gian Villante in the second round for his second straight victory. He recently signed a new four-year deal with the organization, announced during his appearance on Josh Nason's Punch-Out.
