Lawler vs. Woodley Headlines UFC 201 Card

The UFC welterweight title will be on the line on Saturday, July 30, as champion Robbie Lawler defends his title against number three-ranked contender Tyron Woodley in the main event of UFC 201 at Philips Arena in Atlanta.

UFC 201 marks the promotion's first event in Atlanta since UFC 145 in 2012.

After completing one of the sport's greatest comeback stories when he defeated Johny Hendricks for the UFC welterweight title in December of 2014, Lawler has since defended his crown twice with epic wins over Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit. Missouri's Woodley may be Lawler's toughest test yet, having won four of his last five fights, with stoppages of Condit, Josh Koscheck and Dong Hyun Kim.
