This Saturday's UFC 171 pay per view event will feature three especially big bouts in the welterweight and lightweight divisions. In the main event, Johny Hendricks gets another crack at UFC gold in a scrap for the welterweight title Georges St. Pierre vacated last year after winning a controversial decision over "Big Rigg." 

The former two-time national champion wrestler Hendricks will square up against a rejuvenated Robbie Lawler, who has stormed to the top of the 170 pound division in this, his second go-around in the UFC. In the co-main event, Tyron Woodley and Carlos Condit will face one another to determine who will get the first shot at the new welterweight champion.

In a featured lightweight bout, Diego Sanchez returns after his losing but heroic effort last fall against Gilbert Melendez and stands in the way of rising young fighter Myles Jury. Get the low-down on all these fights and a behind the scenes look at all of the fighters' training camps in the three Countdown to UFC 171 videos below.
