Two more of the UFC's top welterweights will collide at UFC 167.

Robbie Lawler is set to square off against Rory MacDonald on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas, UFC officials announced Tuesday night.

Georges St-Pierre will defend his UFC welterweight title against Johny Hendricks in the night's main event.

Lawler has knocked out both Josh Koscheck and Bobby Voelker since returning to the UFC.

MacDonald has won his past five fights, including a unanimous decision win over Jake Ellenberger at UFC on FOX 8 in Seattle on July 27.

Sounds like a number one contender fight.

Robbie takes this. MacDonald is overrated.

Very excited for this fight card. I think Robbie takes this and moves into contention for a future title shot.

Obviously I'm a huge GSP fan but I think he may be in some trouble with this one. It won't be a shock to me if Hendricks wins this.

wow they aren't given Robbie any easy fights are they? You think this punishment to Macdonald for putting on such a boring fight last time out? Robbie is a big 70er and they match up pretty even on most. I gotta give Macdonald the wrestling advantage by a little bit but Im gonna give Robbie the striking advantage by a lot. Lawler via KO.
