UFC 171 marks the return to pay-per-view for the world's largest MMA promotion on Saturday. Headlined by a welterweight title bout, the card boasts a deep lineup from the main event to the bottom of the card.
Johny Hendricks will meet Robbie Lawler for the vacant 170-pound title. It marks the first time in more than five years that we will have an undisputed welterweight champion not named Georges St-Pierre.
As for the prelims, I bring you another edition of picks. The average-at-best picks have continued, as not going with my gut on Louis Gaudinot and Ilir Latifi cost me. I still sit above .500 though, looking to break out with eight prelim picks here.
Without further ado, let's make some predictions on UFC 171's prelims.
2014 Riley's Record: 25-23
Last Event: UFC Fight Night 37 (3-2)
