The highlights from the co-main and main events of UFC 171 are below. The first is the post-fight interview and highlights from the main event in which Johny Hendricks (16-2) defeated Robbie Lawler (22-10) to claim the UFC welterweight championship via unanimous decision.
The co-main event met an unfortunate end at the hands of an injury sustained by #2 welterweight Carlos Condit (29-8). His opponent, Tyron Woodley (13-2) did well up to that point so despite the anti-climactic ending, a win for Woodley wasn’t a farfetched circumstance by any means.
A lightweight bout between Diego Sanchez and Myles Jury (14-0) was also on the main card as Jury notched the biggest win of his career over Sanchez (24-7).
The first welterweight bout of the main card was a bout between Hector Lombard(34-4-1, 1 NC) and Jake Shields (29-7-1, 1NC). Lombard used his speed and superior strength to dominate Shields despite slowing later in the fight.
