UFC 181 Primer: “Bigg Rigg” Makes Quick Work Of One-Time Contender

ufc 181

Remember when Johny Hendricks made it clear he was going to be a contender to the UFC welterweight title sooner rather than later?

That run started with a 12-second knockout of former No. 1 contender Jon Fitch back in 2011 at UFC 141, and you can see the entire fight once again on FightLine in the video below.

Hendricks, the reigning welterweight champion, will return to the Octagon this December at UFC 181 against Robbie Lawler.

And speaking of world title rematches, we’ll have complete coverage of UFC 179 this Saturday night, as Jose Aldo defends his featherweight gold vs. Chad Mendes from Brazil.
