Tyron Woodley out of Robbie Lawler rematch; Darren Till offers to step in

Tyron Woodley won’t be fighting next month.

By Oscar Willis - 17 May 2019

Tyron Woodley is out of his rematch with Robbie Lawler, scheduled to take place at UFC Minneapolis on June 29, and the UFC are currently looking for a replacement.

Per a report from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Woodley was forced to pull out of the contest due to injury. As of now, the UFC have yet to find a person to step in for Woodley’s spot, but a number of other welterweights have put their name forth publicly, such as Darren Till and Mike Perry.

The contest would have been Woodley’s first fight since losing his UFC welterweight title to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 earlier this year. The event also marks Lawler’s first appearance since a controversial loss to Ben Askren at the same event.
