    Default Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler Will Fight for Georges St-Pierre’s Vacated Belt

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/johny-hendr...elt-at-ufc-171

    UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre decided that he had issues in his personal life that he needs to deal with, thus on Friday, St-Pierre announced that he is taking unprecedented step of taking a leave of absence and relinquishing his UFC belt.

    St-Pierre had no answers for how long he would be stepping away, or if it might even be a permanent move that eventually becomes his retirement.

    Not wasting any time in filling the huge gap that St-Pierre leaves behind, UFC president Dana White announced that the UFC would move swiftly to put the belt around someone else’s waist.

    Everybody take a second and think about how crazy it is Robbie Lawler is fighting for the UFC WW title.

    Awesome, GSP takes time off and hopefully gets his life in order without throwing the division in disarray. Plus Robbie Lawler gets to fight, a very winnable fight btw, for a title.
    You have to know what you don't know.

    It is going to be weird as hell not seeing GSP in a welterweight title fight...

    Trivia:

    Who was the last person other than GSP and Matt Sera to challenge for the WW title?

    Wouldn't that be Matt Hughes when he regained the belt by beating BJ Penn? I can't remember the event...

    Edit: I suppose the question was the last one that challenged and won?

    Diaz and Condit should be in this equation. 4 man tourney for the damn belt. Throwing Lawler in front of someone like Condit is ridiculous, he beat McDonald so what? If I was Condit I'd be rolling a grave right now.
