On UFC Tonight it was confirmed that the two welterweights will finally square off as Johny Hendricks is set to take on Tyron Woodley at UFC 192 October 3rd in Houston, Texas.
Tyron Woodley has been campaigning for this fight to happen and was hoping it would happen at UFC 189 but Hendricks wanted to wait to see who the winner was between Lawler and MacDonald in hopes of facing the winner. This will not be happening as Lawler is scheduled to take on Carlos Condit at UFC 193 in Australia.
Tyron Woodley (15-3) is coming off a two fight win streak with his latest earning him a split decision win over Kevin Gastelum at UFC 183.
Johny Hendricks (17-3) is coming off a win to Matt Brown at UFC 185. This was his first fight since loosing the welterweight belt to Robbie Lawler back at UFC 181 in December last year.
