UFC 171 was a very memorable event and worth every penny spent by the fans who traveled to Dallas, TX. The American Airlines Arena had a great atmosphere and their hometown favourite, Johny Hendricks, won the title he deserved to win at UFC 167 back in November. However it wasn’t all plain sailing.
The preliminary card was one of the greatest in recent history, and the main card had some interesting performances. Myles Jury and Ovince St. Preux had breakout performances, Hector Lombard and Tyron Woodley moved on in the stacked welterweight division, and the war between Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks saw the latter crowned champ but both put on an absolute war.
Kelvin Gastelum got past Rick Story but had to overcome a lot of adversity to do so, while Alex Garcia and Jessica Andrade showed glimmers of potential and won hard fought decisions. Dennis Bermudez showed that he is a real contender at featherweight by going 6-0 in the division, while there were also big wins for two of the brightest prospects around in Sean Strickland and Justin Scoggins.
