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.

Sean Santella originally agreed to fight Reis last week, but was unable to gain proper medical clearance on short notice.
A member of the Team Alpha Male squad in Sacramento, the 12-2 Sandoval has won several titles on the regional circuit, and he brings a four-fight winning streak into his UFC debut against Reis.
While the fight isn’t official, all signs are pointing towards the title fight taking place at the newly scheduled card in Atlanta on July 30.
The 34-year-old Lawler will look for the third straight defense of his welterweight title following his wins over Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit, whom he defeated by split decision after a five-round battle at UFC 195 this past January.
Woodley been waiting several months for a title shot after his last fight against former champion Johny Hendricks fell apart when he failed to make weight for their bout at UFC 192 last October.
