It looks like Robbie Lawler will need to get by Mike Perry if he hopes to end his recent losing skid, as it’s being reported the UFC has booked the welterweights to fight.

The 38-year-old Lawler is currently on the longest losing streak of his career, as the former welterweight champ has dropped four straight. Last month, Lawler (28-15) lost via decision to Neil Magny.

According to a recent report from ESPN, sources say a bout between Lawler and Perry has been signed for UFC 255, which is taking place on November 21st. The card is expected to be hosted by the Apex Facility in Las Vegas.

Perry (14-6), on the other hand, is coming off a decision win over Mickey Gall in June. Prior to that the fighter had lost two straight.

The aforementioned report states that Perry recently completed an anger management program. The controversial fighter was required to undergo one, by the UFC, due to an incident at a Texas restaurant earlier this year.

Perry was captured on video striking an older man and shouting racial slurs. The 29-year-old eventually apologized for his actions.
