Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is going to crown a new welterweight 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.
That's just two days away.
As the name suggests, UFC 171 will feature a monster main event showdown featuring Johny Hendricks against Robbie Lawler for the vacant 170-pound title, thanks to Georges St. Pierre's abrupt departure from the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA).
But that's not the only game in town.
In the UFC 171 co-main event, Carlos Condit will attempt to climb back to the top of the welterweight mountain against Strikeforce import and gritty wrestler Tyron Woodley, who is also hoping a big finish in "The Lone Star State" propels him into a title shot.
