UFC 171 open media workout photos gallery for 'Hendricks vs Lawler' in Dallas

Check out a photo gallery from the UFC 171: "Hendricks vs. Lawler" open media workouts event that took place earlier this afternoon (Weds., March 12, 2014) at Gilley’s Dallas – Lone Star Room in Dallas, Texas.

MMAFighting.com photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene at Gilley's Dallas -- Lone Star Room, earlier this afternoon (Weds., March 12, 2014) to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 171: "Hendricks vs. Lawler" open media workouts.

Oddly, the two top Welterweight stars who will collide in the main event of the evening for the now-vacant division title, Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler, were not on the scene to promote their 170-pound championship showdown that will be beamed on pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend (Sat., March 15, 2014) from American Airlines Center.

But, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 1 winner, Diego Sanchez, apparently more than made up for their absence.

"Dream" -- who takes on Myles Jury on the PPV main card -- stole the spotlight with his antics, rocking a Vitor Belfort-inspired mohawk (sans holy cross) and rambling on about several odd topics (watch full scrum video here).

Jake Shields, Hector Lombard, Will Campuzano and Sean Spencer were also among the "Sin City" Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contingent required to be photo friendly. Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley -- who will collide in the co-main event of the evening -- were not in attendance, joining "Bigg Rigg" and "Ruthless" at "Ultimate Media Day" tomorrow instead.

Got to save the best for last.

Remember: MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 171 card this Saturday night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" online, which are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 2-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
