    Great night of action from the prelims to the main event. I was rooting for Lawler, but Hendrix has my respect. Lawler just ran out of gas before the finish line. Had he kept the pace he had in round 4 he would be the new champ...or I should say SHOULD be the new camp. Ok, So Lombard vs Lawler for the next titleshot. Loved watching lombard use his Judo against shields, I wish Melvin Guillard would take notes on that and Robbie Lawler's awesome telephone pole jab. Lombard played it safe against shields not wanting to give him an easy take down I guess. Shields is very sticky on the ground, a hard guy to get good GnP against. But still Lombard was the boss the entire fight and should be in the mix for a title shot this year somehow. And if Diaz wants to get in the mix he should have to fight another top contender, they might match him against Lombard but I think it would be extremely unfair. Maybe rematch Diaz with Condit or fight woodley. But uf course I wouldn't mind seeing an immediate rematch between Lawler and Hendrix either. This was just that kind of a fight.

    On a side note the ladies went out there and went to war hard tonight, very good night for WMMA.

    So much for Condit being crowned WW champion in 2014. Goddamn it.

    Hey, don't mess with the expensive unbuttoned dress shirt.

    You have experience in that field. Don't you remember how giddy you were when Spider's leg snapped? Pot meet Kettle.

    Don't you like it when fans celebrate injuries, especially when they act like the moral police as often as they can?

    Full fight on youtube, search for "UFC 171 Hendricks x Lawler" by user Tinhu Alves. Thank goodness for no biased Rogan commentary lol.

    After rewatching that first round, I have to recall my earlier statements, Hendricks did win the round. He was more aggressive and landed a handful of leg kicks. Robbie took too long trying to feel him out unfortunately. Regarding the 5th, Hendricks had it won even before the takedown, it was clear Robbie was starting to gas around 3 minutes in.

    As was said by someone earlier, a right in the head GSP would have made either of those guys look completely ineffective last night. Based on Hendricks style, I think Woodley makes for an exciting fight and Rory makes for a very dull fight. I'd put Lombard vs Rory for the title shot after that, Matt Brown vs Shields, and Woodley vs Hendricks.

    Can't forget about the Ellenberger/Saffiedine winner. Jake is already ranked higher than some of the guys we're talking about giving title shots to.

    Jake lost to Rory like what a little over 6 months ago? That was his last fight so I don't see him getting a shot with a win especially since he pissed Dana off in the process and unfortunately that plays a role in the title picture. Saffiedine on the other hand I could totally see getting a shot. would love to see how Hendricks responds to those brutal leg kicks.

    Holy cow! As if the legend of Johny Freaking Hendricks wasn't big enough! No amount of adversity can stop this machine. Fedor who?
