The “Countdown” has begun!
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will return to the Octagon to defend his title against top 170-pound contender Tyron Woodley in the UFC 201 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner on Saturday night (July 30, 2016) inside Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
Lawler (27-10, 1 NC) hasn’t been seen since a controversial split decision win over Carlos Condit at UFC 195 back in January, his second straight title defense since capturing the crown from Johny Hendricks in late 2014. Woodley (15-3), meanwhile, earned his spot in line with consecutive wins over Dong Hyun Kim and Kelvin Gastelum.
