The rematch between Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler has been put on the backburner after Woodley withdrew from the main-event match.

Woodley (19-4-1) reportedly injured his hand as he prepared for the June 29th UFC event in Minneapolis. He is coming off a one-sided, unanimous decision loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in March where he lost the welterweight title. Woodley is expected to see a hand specialist sometime next week.

The UFC is now looking for a replacement for the Hardknocks 265 standout who has a 28-13 record. Lawler lost his welterweight title to Woodley via knockout in July 2016 and was last in action at UFC 229 where he lost via submission to Ben Askren in a controversial finish. The 37-year old has now lost three of his last four bouts.

With such short notice to replace Woodley, the list of potential replacements is limited. There are a pair of fighters who could step in though as neither Santiago Ponzinibbio and Leon Edwards are booked for fights and both seem to be healthy. Currently the Lawler and the two potential replacements are all ranked ninth through 11th in the welterweight rankings with Lawler right in the middle of them.

This is the second time in the last year that Roufusport product has injured his hand. Last year he underwent surgery after dislocating his right thumb.

While the UFC has not made an official announcement about Woodley being out of action, it is expected to come in the near future.

UFC on ESPN3 takes place June 29 at the Target Center in Minneapolis with the entire card airing on ESPN.
