UFC 171 hits Dallas for fight week, and for the first time since 2008, someone other than Georges St-Pierre will hold the UFC Welterweight Championship.
The vacant title is up for grabs between No. 1-ranked Johny Hendricks and No. 3-ranked Robbie Lawler in the main event, but there are two other high-profile welterweight bouts on the card as well. No. 2-ranked Carlos Condit battles No. 11-ranked Tyron Woodley, and No. 6-ranked Jake Shields squares off against No. 12-ranked Hector Lombard.
The 13-fight card will become official Friday afternoon, when the fighters officially weigh-in for the event. Bleacher Report will have full coverage of the weigh-ins at 5 p.m. ET.
