As expected would be the case, Robbie Lawler’s next title defense will take place against Tyron Woodley at UFC 201 on July 30th.

Recently it was reported that the UFC was hoping to book Lawler – Woodley for that date, and today the promotion confirmed the fight is signed.

Lawler (27-10) is coming off a tightly contested, split decision win over Carlos Condit in January, after taking out Rory MacDonald last July,

Woodley (15-3), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since January, 2015, when he decisioned Kelvin Gastelum. Woodley was scheduled to fight Johny Hendricks in October, but the latter incurred complications while cutting weight and had to withdraw.

UFC 201 will be hosted by the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
