UFC 201 Picks Up A Pair Of New Fights For July


Two new fights were announced for UFC 201, as the Octagon returns to Atanta.

Along with the planned main event between Robbie Lawler vs. Tyron Woodley for the welterweight title, Siyar Bahadurzada meets Claudio Silva and Damien Brown takes on Cesar Arzamendia.

Bahadurzada (22-6-1) has split his four UFC fights, returning from almost three years away recently and submitting Brandon Thatch. Silva (11-1) is a perfect 2-0, besting Brad Scott and Leon Edwards.

Brown (15-9) and Arzamendia (7-2) are each searching for their first win with the promotion after dropping their debuts.

UFC 201 takes place July 30 from the Philips Arena in Atlanta.
