Most eyes remain firmly fixed on UFC 200, when Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones face each other once again in a light heavyweight title unification fight. But while the promotion machine rolls on, Dana White and co are busy booking their next event.

MMA Fighting are reporting that Robbie Lawler will defend his welterweight crown at UFC 201. The event, taking place on 30 July, will likely take place in Atlanta.

No announcement has yet been made by the UFC, but it is expected that the 34-year-old will face Tyron Woodley (15-3) at the event.

Lawler has won his last five bouts, the latest of which was a five round struggle against Carlos Condit in January at UFC 195.
