UFC 171 went down last night in the American Airlines center, Dallas, Texas. The long awaited welterweight title bout between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler headlined the card, and ‘Bigg Rigg’ emerged as the newly crowned champion of the disivion.
Many argued that Hendricks was in fact the uncrowned champion following his controversial decision loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 167. The fight against ‘Rush’ becomes a thing of the past for ‘Bigg Rigg’, who took on a very dangerous fighter in ‘Ruthless’.
The result was an entertaining five round affair that earned the two veterans fight of the night honors. Check out the full video highlights of UFC 171’s main event, courtesy of UFC.com, and stay tuned to LowKick!
