Now that UFC on FOX 20 is in the books — full results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all set to stage its next pay-per-view (PPV) event.
And it’s a good one!
UFC 201 is all set to go down from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on July 30, 2016 and will feature a Welterweight title fight between division champion Robbie Lawler taking on No. 1 contender Tyron Woodley.
It’s a title fight years in the making for “The Chosen One,” who earned his way into a championship fight against “Ruthless” after taking out Dong Hyun Kim and Kelvin Gastelum. Though some may not have agreed with the matchup, Woodley looks to make the most of his opportunity.
For Robbie, It will be his third title defense since winning gold in 2014, taking the strap away from Johny Hendricks.
In the co-headlining act, Demetrious Johnson was all set to defend his Flyweight title for the ninth time against hard-hitting Wilson Reis, however, an injury to “Mighty Mouse” derailed those plans and Reis will now face newcomer Sean Santella.
