UFC 171 is a huge event for the welterweight division, featuring top level contenders in influential bouts including Tyron Woodley vs. Carlos Condit, Hector Lombard vs. Jake Shields and the championship bout between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler. The event will change the landscape massively, and all in the absence of former long time champ Georges St-Pierre.
The title will be decided when old school fan favorite ‘Ruthless’ squares off against heavy handed #1 ‘Bigg Rigg’, and fans have been eagerly anticipating this scrap for quite a while now. Will Lawler’s resurgence and evolution pay dividends this Saturday, or will Hendricks prove that he deserves the belt he so nearly captured at UFC 167?
