Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will begrudgingly rematch Stephen Thompson at the upcoming UFC 209 pay-per-view (PPV) event, booked for Sat., March 4, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
See how that fight came together here.
Woodley was not “The Chosen One” when judges rendered their decision in the UFC 205 co-main event last November in New York, instead calling his 170-pound title fight a draw following five rounds of back-and-forth action.
Full recap here.
And, much like their first go-round in the “Empire State,” they took turns taking shots at one another while promoting the UFC 209 main event during Wednesday’s edition of ESPN SportsCenter.

The sooner these two settle their score, the quicker we can get back to welterweight business. Top-ranked title contender Demian Maia is patiently waiting for his crack at the 170-pound crown, while Robbie Lawler is likely one
camp win away from trying to get his division title back.
