UFC 201 live 2016

Woodley (15-3) hasn’t fought since a split decision win vs. an overweight and ill Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 183. The former Strikeforce welterweight title challenger was scheduled to face Johny Hendricks at UFC 192, but Hendricks’ fight week hospitalization led to the cancellation of the fight, and Dana White effectively giving Woodley the next title shot. Woodley’s biggest wins are a knockout of Dong Hyun Kim, an injury TKO vs. Carlos Condit, and a vicious one-punch KO of Josh Koscheck. He’ll be coming off an 18 month layoff when he enters the cage against Lawler.

LAWLER VS. WOODLEY

Woodley, meanwhile, has been on the sideline since a split-decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 183, a fight for which Gastelum badly missed weight. Woodley, a 34-year-old former standout NCAA Division I wrestler, was then supposed to return this past October against Hendricks in a title eliminator, but the former champ’s weight cut was bad enough he needed to be hospitalized, and the fight with Woodley was canceled.

Lawler beat Johny Hendricks by split decision to win the title at UFC 181. He’s since defended the title twice. At UFC 189, the 34-year-old American Top Team fighter defeated Rory MacDonald via fifth-round TKO in a “Fight of the Year” candidate. At UFC 195 in January, heearned a split-decision win over Carlos Condit.

Reigning champion Robbie Lawler (27-10 MMA, 12-4 UFC) will meet challenger Tyron Woodley (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC), officials today announced. The bout had been in the works.
