It should prove to be an interesting battle, as the new generation of strawweights set their sights  on the top-5.

UFC 201 takes place July 30th at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler defends against Tyron Woodley in the main event, while flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson takes on Wilson Reis in the co-main event.
