November 24, 2014

    Due to Connect's publishing hiatus in December, this will be the last Punch Line of 2014. Keep an eye out for more columns starting in January!

    On Dec. 6, Johnny “Big Rig” Hendricks will defend his title for the first time against “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler.
    After Georges St. Pierre vacated the title, these two fought to unify the title for a new welterweight champion. Hendricks, with a broken hand, succeeded and pulled out a victory to become the new champion at 170 pounds. The UFC matchmakers must have thought the match was close enough to make a rematch, so here we go again for round two.
    I will say that I’m excited to see both of these fighters go at it at 100 percent, though I believe Hendricks will pull out the victory again. Don’t miss this card — with other fighters like Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, Travis Browne and Abel Trujillo on the card as well, it is sure to be a great one!
    Coming up in the new year, the UFC has laid out an exciting string of events from January to February with huge stars like Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones, Conor McGregor and the return of Nick Diaz and Anderson Silva.    
    With stars like these on the upcoming cards in January, we’re looking to have a great beginning to the new year in UFC. So stay tuned!
