Five Huge Fights To Make After UFC 214

    USA Today


    Tyron Woodley vs. Robbie Lawler II

    Heading into his UFC 214 co-main event bout with Maia, Woodley was promised a fight against former longtime champion Georges St. Pierre, who’s expected to return at some point later this year, if he were to indeed beat Maia.

    Well, Woodley ended up beating Maia. In fact, he dominated the Brazilian by stuffing all 21 of his takedowns en route to a one-sided snoozefest of a unanimous decision victory, but the performance didn’t impress UFC President Dana White, and it looks as if St. Pierre will now take on middleweight titleholder Michael Bisping.

    With that being said, it seems as if the logical fight to make is a rematch between Woodley and No. 3-ranked Robbie Lawler.

    The duo met last summer at UFC 201 where Woodley scored a brutal knockout victory over Lawler in the first round to steal the title. The “Ruthless” one took quite a bit of time off after the bout, but he returned last night to score a victory over Donald Cerrone in an extremely exciting affair.

    With no clear-cut No. 1-contender in the welterweight division, the UFC should look to book Woodley and Lawler once more.

      “Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson II”

      Thats not really all that huge.
      I love Gus and he’s extremely talented, but he’s not going to beat jones and nobody ever thought that he will.

      Theres no reason for jones to be at 205 now that he’s finished his rivalry with DC.
      Other then for him to sit of axx in a cleared aout division and caim that he’s too small to fight Stipe at HW, while he smugly calls for a money fight against the even arger Brock.

      Hopefully Brock ragdolls him until he ishts his pants.

        I completely disagree, i think Gus won the first bout, so im really excited for number 2.
