UFC 181 full video preview for 'Hendricks vs. Lawler 2' on Dec. 6 in Las Vegas (Extended)

Less than two weeks to go!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is ditching the Fight Pass and FOX Sports 1 fluff for a slam-bang mixed martial arts (MMA) championship doubleheader, as UFC 181 is officially locked and loaded for Sat., Dec. 6, 2014 inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The "Hendricks vs. Lawler 2" pay-per-view extravaganza features the highly-anticipated rematch between newly-minted welterweight champion, Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks, and the man he most recently defeated via narrow decision to win it, "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler.

Not to be outdone, lightweight champion, Anthony "Showtime" Pettis, will make his first-ever 155-pound title defense since winning the belt more than one year ago when he takes on top-ranked contender -- and opposing coach on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 -- Gilbert "El Nino" Melendez.

Still not good enough for you?
