UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks had a long and bumpy road to his first ever title shot, and it didn’t go as planned. The controversial decision at UFC 167 left “Bigg Rigg” devastated, but Georges St-Pierre soon made the universe right again. “Rush” vacated his long-held title in a storm of controversy, but for Hendricks this was the start of a great year.

The UFC quickly booked Johny Hendricks vs Robbie Lawler at UFC 171, for the now vacant strap. “Ruthless” came in to the fight as a resurgent force from the old days, with a new found control that made him even scarier. He had just knocked out Josh Koscheck and Bobby Voelker, and dismantled Rory MacDonald over three rounds at UFC 167.
