In less than two weeks time, Robbie Lawler will attempt to become the first man to defend the welterweight title, since Georges St. Pierre did it last in November, 2013.
After GSP announced he was vacating the title, Johny Hendricks battled Robbie Lawler in March, 2014, and won the belt via unanimous decision. “Bigg Rigg”, however, underwent surgery not long after, and didn’t return until last December at UFC 181.
At the event, Hendricks faced Lawler again, but this time, “Ruthless” emerged with the title and a split decision win.
In advance of Lawler’s July 11th bout with Rory MacDonald, the promotion has posted his second, memorable fight with Hendricks. You can check it out below.
