The UFC returns to Dallas this March on Saturday the 15th at the American Airlines Center. Tickets are on sale right now for UFC 171: Hendricks vs Lawler at Ticketmaster.com. This is the UFC's first trip to Dallas since 2009.
For the first time since 2008 the UFC will have a welterweight champion not named Georges St-Pierre. St-Pierre stepped away from the sport in December of last year and vacated the UFC welterweight championship. Now, Dallas based fighter and number one contender Johny Hendricks will meet former Strikeforce champion Robbie Lawler.
The card will also feature another big welterweight bout between former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit and the fast rising Tyron Woodley. The welterweight fun does not stop there as hard hitting Hector Lombard meets grappling ace Jake Shields. Also on the card will be the first ever woman's Ultimate Fighter winner, Julianna Pena, as she faces Jessica Andrade.
