The "Countdown" has begun!
"Countdown" to UFC 171 lit up the airwaves earlier this week on FOX Sports 1 to help promote the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Saturday night (March 15, 2014) inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
And this one is for all the marbles.
That's because Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler will slug it out in the headlining affair to lay claim to the 170-pound that Georges St. Pierre vacated back in December. Check out an in-depth preview of their weekend title scrap in the video above.
But there's more to the story. Much more.
Also in welterweight action, Carlos Condit aims to earn himself a "Bigg Rigg" rematch -- or perhaps a "Ruthless" title fight -- by turning away streaking Strikeforce import Tyron Woodley, while Diego Sanchez looks to put on another barnburner opposite Myles Jury. Check out their "Countdown" videos below.
