Demetrious Johnson will look to move one step closer to history this July when he defends his flyweight title against Wilson Reis at UFC 201.

Set for July 30 from Atlanta and the Philips Arena, the bout will serve as the co-main event to Tyron Woodley vs. Robbie Lawler for Lawler’s welterweight title.

Johnson (24-2-1) is currently tied with Jon Jones for third on the UFC’s all-time title defenses chart. He sits one win away from tying Georges St-Pierre and two from Anderson Silva’s record.

Recently, “Mighty Mouse” dusted Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo in the first round.

Reis (20-6) is 8-2 over his last 10, including wins vs. Dustin Ortiz, Scott Jorgensen and Joby Sanchez.
