Johny Hendricks vs Robbie Lawler, Carlos Condit vs Tyron Woodley staredown pic from UFC 171 media day in Dallas

Four top welterweights. One will be champ and one will be his next title contender. Can you spot them?

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.

Here's a look at their staredown pic from today's UFC 171 media event (via Esther Lin for MMA Fighting):
