MMA Junkie reports that Countdown to UFC 171: Hendricks vs Lawler will debut this Sunday on FOX Sports 1. It's a one hour special that will preview the main event for the vacant welterweight title between Johny Hendricks (15-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and Robbie Lawler (22-9 MMA, 7-3 UFC). It airs at 10 PM ET and replays throughout the week.
UFC 171 happens on March 15 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The main card airs on PPV after preliminary fights on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass. The main event was put together after Georges St-Pierre vacated his title and went on hiatus. Other fights include welterweights Carlos Condit (29-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) vs. Tyron Woodley (12-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and lightweights Diego Sanchez (24-6 MMA, 13-6 UFC) and Myles Jury (13-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC). These will also likely be featured on Countdown.
