UFC 171 Play By Play: Hendricks Vs. Lawler

UFC 171 play by playJohny Hendricks provided a little drama to an event that definitely lacks drama. It lacked a lot of things. But that’s what happens when your biggest star leaves and the best guys to replace him don’t have even 1/2 his star power. But that’s what this show is about.
