Nothing is set in stone, however. The card, as always, is subject to change.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
The news prompted Woodley to take to Twitter to declare his excitement.

UFC 201 will take place at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. White said earlier in April that UFC 202 is also a possibility for the bout.
Lawler last defended the title with an exciting split-decision win over Carlos Condit at UFC 195 in January.
Woodley earned a split-decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at Ufc 183 in January of 2015. He was supposed to fight Johny Hendricks at UFC 192, but Hendricks pulled out late after experiencing weight-cutting issues.
