Robbie Lawler is the new UFC welterweight champion after winning a split decision over Johny Hendricks in the main event of the UFC 181 pay-per-view (PPV) last night (Sat., Dec. 6, 2014) at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. That is a fact. That is the end result, no matter how much any fan may disagree with it and believe me, there are many who disagree with this one. Lawler came out strong in the first, blitzing Hendricks and taking round one without question. But, for each round after, he appeared to be operating in slow motion, as though his body was under fire from extreme fatigue. He didn't really break out of his slump until the fifth round when he used the last 20 seconds to send a vicious volley of violence the champion's way. It's those middle rounds that are murky.
