UFC 171 full poster pic for 'Hendricks vs. Lawler' on March 15 in Dallas

UFC

Considering how "weird" things have gotten with Georges St. Pierre (details), I'm inclined to believe the promotion is in a hurry to get that 170-pound title around the waist of one of these two men.

This one is all about the welterweights.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is going to crown a new 170-pound champion at the upcoming UFC 171: "Hendricks vs. Lawler" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on March 15, 2014.

And it's likely to name a number one contender, as well.

The gold will be up for grabs -- thanks to Georges St. Pierre's hasty exit -- when Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler bang it out in the event headliner. Shortly before they throw down, fellow welterweights Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley will try to prove their worth in a tight division title chase.

See for yourself.

If "The Natural Born Killer" and "The Chosen One" fail to impress, then we can always shift our attention to the main card melee that pits former Bellator 185-pound champion Hector Lombard against ex-Strikeforce middleweight kingpin Jake Shields.

Hell yeah.
