By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

The UFC is officially returning to Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., on July 30, with UFC 201.

The previously reported event was officially announced on Sunday, though no fights have yet been confirmed. A Welterweight Championship fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley has been linked to the card, but has not yet been announced by the UFC.

It will have been four and a half years between visits for the UFC when this July 30 event takes place, and is just their third event ever in the venue. Their previous trips were both coincidentally headlined by Rashad Evans fights, as Evans knocked out Chuck Liddell in the main event of UFC 88 in 2008, and lost a decision to Jon Jones at UFC 145 in April of 2012.
