Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks is the new UFC welterweight champion of the world! He beat “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler in a hard-fought, 5-round war. Hendricks took the first two rounds, Lawler then surged in rounds 3 and 4. In round 5, Hendricks then blasted Lawler with leg kicks and left hands that sent him reeling. Hendricks then sealed the round with a take down. The win came to Hendricks after a disappointing loss to former title holder Georges St-Pierre in a fight that many thought Hendricks won. Now that we have a new champ, we’ll have to see who the UFC will name as the new number-one contender in arguably the most stacked division in the UFC.
