<p><a href="http://sportv.globo.com/site/combate/noticia/2016/07/demetrious-johnson-se-machuca-e-luta-contra-wilson-reis-sera-remarcada.html">According to a report by Combate</a>, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has been forced out of his UFC 201 co-main event bout against Wilson due to an injury. The card, which was originally scheduled to have two title fights, will still be headlined by Robbie Lawler’s defense of his welterweight belt against Tryon Woodley. </p>
<p>The flyweight champ has not lost since 2011 and is currently on a ten-fight win streak with eight of those wins being title defenses, tying him at third place with Jon Jones for the most number of consecutive title defenses in UFC history. In addition, Johnson, one of the more active champions on the roster, has put his belt on the line five times in under two years and has finished his opponent in three of those bouts.</p>
<p>Wilson Reis, who is currently ranked #8 on the official UFC flyweight rankings, is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Dustin Ortiz at UFC on FOX 18. The 31-year old Brazilian made a successful UFC debut against Ivan Menjivar in 2013 and has gone 4-2 in the promotion since.</p>
<p>UFC 201 is set to take place at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on July 30.</p>
