UFC 171 Co-Main Winner Not Guaranteed Title Shot, Says Dana White

UFC 171 Co-Main Winner Not Guaranteed Title Shot, Says Dana White

UFC president Dana White isn’t guaranteeing anything in regards to Saturday night’s UFC 171 co-main event bout between Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley.

While most feel the winner will face the winner of Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler that takes place in the main event spot, White isn’t setting anything in stone.

“There’s no guarantees, anywhere, ever in life,” he told MMAjunkie.com.

Woodley (12-2) and Condit (29-7) both have stated that they feel their bout is for the No. 1 contender role, but the UFC boss is holding out to see what they bring. The card also features welterweight contenders Jake Shields and Hector Lombard, plus there is always the Georges St-Pierre card.

“They’re going to have to come out and perform,” White said. “We’ll see what happens.”

St-Pierre vacated the title last year, forcing the UFC to put it up for grabs. They selected Hendricks and Lawler to compete for the belt.

    Shields is on a 3 fight win-streak so the argument could definitely be for him to get the next shot depending on how the Lombard fight goes. Lombard has done well after cutting down, so the argument could be there too.
