2014 UFC 171 Free Picks & Predictions for Hendricks vs. Lawler   
By Drew Sharper      

DALLAS, TX (The Spread) – UFC 171 will go down tonight, where a new champion will be crowned. Here are some picks to consider for this event.

UFC 171 will take place from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at BetDSI.

UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Johny Hendricks (15-2) vs. Robbie Lawler (22-9)

Hendricks didn’t make weight at first, which is a concern, but reports are that he didn’t struggle to complete his weight cut following the initial weigh in. On paper, Hendricks looks to be the better overall fighter. He has the striking, wrestling and endurance to win. However, it is tough to pick against Lawler. He has the ability to win this fight with one punch and is a big 170-pounder. Wrestling him to the ground won’t be easy and a stand up war could end in a KO loss. Still, I am sticking with my initial pick of Hendricks. It appears to be his time in this division. UFC 171 FREE PICK – Johny Hendricks -400


UFC WELTERWEIGHT BOUT – Carlos Condit (29-7) vs. Tyron Woodley (12-2)

Condit is a great all-around fighter and very technically strong. If this were a 5-round fight, I would give Condit the win in a slam dunk. Since it is three rounds, I feel a little bit more cautious, as a slow start could lose him the fight. I think Condit still wins by decision, as he striking and grappling will be superior to Woodley. Condit will just have to avoid the early rush from Woodley. UFC 171 FREE PICK – Carlos Condit -185


UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUT – Diego Sanchez (24-6) vs. Myles Jury (13-0)

Jury is a promising young fighter that could be a big force in the 155-pound division, but I think he is really stepping up to a new level in this fight. Sanchez isn’t always the best fighter, but his heart is greater than anyone in the UFC. He pushes the paces and never backs down and that can be difficult for an opponent to deal with, especially someone young like Jury that hasn’t fought an opponent of this caliber. Jury may be technically stronger, but Sanchez’ will will carry him and potentially break the younger fighter. Look for Sanchez to score a submission win late in the third in an incredible fight. UFC 171 FREE PICK – Diego Sanchez +145
