UFC 171 went down Saturday night from Dallas and saw the crowning of a new welterweight champion, as Johny Hendricks bested Robbie Lawler.
Hendricks and Lawler engaged in a five-round battle, and the two were named the “Fight of the Night.”
“Performance of the Night” bonuses went to both Dennis Bermudez and Ovince St. Preux. All four picked up an additional $50,000.
The live gate for the card was $2.6 million with an attendance of 19,224 inside the American Airlines Center.
