UFC 171 Goes Down Saturday Night From Dallas

UFC 171 Goes Down Saturday Night From Dallas

The UFC will crown a new welterweight champion this Saturday night, as Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler meet in the main event of UFC 171.

The belt was vacated when Georges St-Pierre stepped away from MMA after defeating Hendricks via decision.

Now, from Dallas and the American Airlines Center, a new man to lead the 170-pound division will be decided.

Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley meet in another key welterweight tilt, along with Diego Sanchez-Myles Jury, Jake Shields-Hector Lombard and Ovince St. Preux-Nikita Krylov.

As a reminder, the prelims will air on FOX Sports 2. FightLine will be providing complete coverage of the card, along with all your pre- and post-fight news and information.
