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.

TWO WORLD TITLE FIGHTS HEADLINE THE UFC’S RETURN TO ATLANTA


Two world titles are on the line Saturday, July 30 at Philips Arena when the UFC returns to Atlanta for the first time since 2012. One of the most exciting champions in UFC history returns to the Octagon as welterweight kingpin Robbie Lawler looks to defend his title for the third time when he meets Tyron Woodley in the five-round main event. The co-main event of UFC 201: LAWLER vs. WOODLEY features Demetrious Johnson, the only flyweight champion in UFC history, against Wilson Reis who looks to upset one of the most dominant champions in UFC history.

This showdown for the welterweight crown between Lawler (26-10, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) and Woodley (15-3, fighting out of St. Louis, Mo.) pits two of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC against one another as they have combined for 20 first-round finishes. To raise the stakes, both men also train out of the American Top Team camp, widely considered one of the best gyms in the world. Lawler, who is coming off two of the best fights in division history against Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit, packs a heavy punch and has finished 20 of 26 pro victories by knockout. A two-time NCAA Div. I All-American wrestler, Woodley will need to use his smothering ground attack to counter the world-class striking of the champion.

In the co-main event, Johnson (24-2-1, fighting out of Parkland, Wash.) will put his flyweight title on the line against No. 8 contender Reis (20-6, fighting out of San Diego, Calif.). “Mighty Mouse” is ranked No. 2 on the pound-for-pound list and his eight title defenses are tied with Jon Jones for the third most in UFC history (St-Pierre – 9, A. Silva – 10). He will be challenged by Reis who has nine wins by submission ­­­– six in the first round. The Brazilian moved to the flyweight division in the summer of 2014 and has won three of his last four fights.

Also, two of the welterweight division’s most experienced fighters collide when No. 8 Matt Brown (22-14, fighting out of Denver, Colo.) meets Jake Ellenberger (30-11, fighting out of Lake Forest, Calif.). These two dominant strikers have combined for 33 knockouts making this bout an early favorite for Fight of the Night.

Additional bouts:

· Electrifying No. 3 strawweight contender Rose Namajunas (6-2, fighting out of Denver, Colo.) fights the versatile and undefeated No. 6 Karolina Kowalkiewicz (9-0, fighting out of Lodz, Poland).

· Two striking specialists clash in a bantamweight bout when Francisco Rivera, (11-6, fighting out of Buena Park, Calif.) meets Erik Perez (15-6, fighting out of San Diego, Calif.).

· No.11 light heavyweight contender Nikita Krylov (20-4, fighting out of Donetsk, Ukraine) faces seasoned veteran Ed Herman (24-11, fighting out of Portland, Ore.)

· Knockout artist Anthony Hamilton (14-5, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) squares off against heavyweight finisher Damian Grabowski (20-3, fighting out of Opole, Poland).

· Undefeated American Top Team welterweight Michael Graves (6-0, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) meets submission specialist Bojan Velickovic (14-3, fighting out of Denver, Colo.).

· Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Claudio Silva (11-1, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) takes on heavy-handed Siyar Bahadurzada (22-6-1, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) in a 170-pound bout.

· Paraguayan newcomer Cesar Arzamendia (7-3, fighting out of Asuncion, Paraguay) collides with well-rounded Damien Brown (15-9, fighting out of Brisbane, Australia) in a lightweight showdown.
