UFC 181: "'Hendricks vs. Lawler 2" blew the roof off the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sat., Dec. 6, 2014, with a top shelf pay-per-view (PPV) offering -- one of the best in some time, really -- rich with stories you either need to get up to date on or go back and revisit.

Thanks to a split decision victory over Johny Hendricks in the main event, Robbie Lawler is the UFC welterweight champion. Quick reminder: It's 2014. The world makes no sense, folks.


Chicago Made

Just after the first fight ended, suddenly a man named Phil Brooks, better known as former WWE star CM Punk, showed up to say he signed a contract with the UFC.
