There Are Potentially Some Massive Fights Being Lined Up For UFC 201

There Are Potentially Some Massive Fights Being Lined Up For UFC 201
By Conor O'Leary

UFC 200 is meant to be the huge milestone event for the MMA promotion - but the line-up might have competition from the feast that could be in Atlanta for UFC 201.

Robbie Lawlor and Tyron Woodley have already been announced as the headline fight in Georgia, and according to the UFC Tonight telecast on Wednesday - they will be joined on the card by the no. two ranked pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson.

Johnson dispatched Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo at UFC 197 last month, and he looks to be back in the octagon in July to defend his title against Wilson Reis. Reis is the eighth ranked fighter in the flyweight division. It will be Reis' first title bout, and comes after his victory over Dustin Ortiz at UFC on Fox 18.

There are rumours that the UFC are trying to line up Cyborg for her second bout in the promotion. Cyborg took just 81 seconds to knock out Leslie Smith in her UFC debut, and was being lined up for a catchweight fight against Germaine de Randamie.

However, Cyborg is thought to prefer to defend her Invictus title in her next fight, and doesn't want to fight at a catchweight unless it is against Ronda Rousey or Miesha Tate.

We await to see what happens with Cyborg, but it looks like there's an appetite from the UFC to make UFC 201 a stellar line-up.
