A rematch between former welterweight champions Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler is set to main event UFC Minneapolis on June 29.

Woodley (19-4-1) recently lost the welterweight strap via unanimous decision to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 earlier this month. Prior to his loss to Usman, Woodley had successfully defended the title against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Demian Maia, and Darren Till.

Lawler (28-13-1NC) is coming off of back-to-back losses against RDA and Ben Askren, most recently submitting to Askren in controversial fashion earlier this month. Lawler holds notable Octagon wins over the likes of Rory MacDonald (x2), Matt Brown, Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit, and "Cowboy" Cerrone.
