Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson rematch set for UFC 209

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley defended his belt against undisputed No. 1 contender Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson at UFC 205 in an enthralling title fight that will go down as one of the best of all time. The bout ended in a majority draw, leaving the top of the welterweight division as congested as it was before the UFC's debut in Madison Square Garden.

Thompson has been campaigning for another shot at Woodley, much in the same way he did before UFC 205, calling into question his championship behavior. Thompson even posted a picture of a signed bout agreement awaiting Woodley.
