Tyron Woodley To Rematch Robbie Lawler
Dana White’s sudden change of heart regarding not making the Ben Askren vs Robbie Lawler rematch, now makes sense. Dana told ESPN that Lawler is set to rematch Tyron Woodley in the UFC Minneapolis main event.
Woodley won their first encounter in 2016, via a first round knockout, to win the UFC welterweight title.
More recently, Woodley has just lost the title he won from Lawler, losing to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, earlier this month. Whereas Lawler is coming off of a loss on the same card, losing to Askren. Albeit, via a controversial stoppage.
The rematch opens up the way for an Askren vs Jorge Masvidal fight. Although Askren thinks Masvidal is scared to accept the fight. As you can see here.
UFC Minneapolis goes down on June 29th at the Target Center.
