It’s weird that we live in a world where Georges St. Pierre isn’t the UFC welterweight champion. Personal issues outside of the octagon altered the one constant that seemed like a sure thing, Robbie Lawler and Johnny Hendricks will go to war for the vacated title and a victory for both fighters would make a remarkable story. A win for Hendricks gives him what many feel is rightfully his while a Lawler victory would be the perfect bookend to a bitter sweet journey.

Bouts that promise a slug fest fail to live up to the billing. I believe UFC 171 will deliver everything a fight fan can ask for. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I’m about this fight. However, you can read about it at Camel Clutch
