On Saturday, July 30, the UFC will host UFC 201: Lawler vs. Woodley from the Philips Arena in Atlanta.

In the night’s main event, welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will look to continue his reign over the 170-pound division as he takes on Tyron Woodley. The 34-year-old Lawler has won five straight, including back-to-back “Fight of the Year” performances against Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald. Woodley, meanwhile, has won four of his last five Octagon appearances, most recently besting Kelvin Gastelum via decision at UFC 183 last January.

Also on the card, former women’s strawweight title challenger Rose Namajunas will look to hand undefeated Polish fighter Karolina Kowalkiewicz her first professional loss. The 24-year-old Namajunas has won three straight since her title defeat to Carla Esparza in late 2014. The fellow Invicta FC veteran Kowalkiewicz has won two straight in the UFC to extend her record to 9-0.

The 11-fight event kicks off Saturday at 7 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 2, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 4 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
