UFC on Fox 8 is scheduled for July 27th in the Key Arena in Seattle, WA, and a couple of the main card fights have already been booked. Neither look to be the main event at this point, but they're solid welterweight bouts nonetheless. Jake Ellenberger will look to build on his UFC 158 win over Nate Marquardt when he takes on Canadian standout Rory MacDonald. The bout could have title implications for Ellenberger, but unless Johny Hendricks unseats current champ Georges St. Pierre, it seems unlikely that Rory would accept a title shot with a win.
Also in the welterweight division, two former Strikeforce fighters will meet when Robbie Lawler takes on the last Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. Lawler defeated Josh Koscheck in his UFC re-debut, while Saffiedine will be making his official debut on the show.
