MMA Vivisection: UFC 171 - Hendricks vs. Lawler preview and predictions

Kid Nate, Dallas Winston and Connor Ruebusch of Bloody Elbow break down each fight on this Saturday's UFC 171: Hendricks vs. Lawler fight card. With funny hats.

It's "Funny Hat Day" on this week's iteration of the MMA Vivisection, wherein the entire UFC 171: Hendricks vs. Lawler lineup is covered in detail. And that's a whole 13 fights, dearest readers: four on UFC Fight Pass, four on Fox Sports 2 and five on the featured pay-per-view card.

It's a long show, so those short on patience or only interested in the main-card rigamarole can skip to the 51:33 mark. But doing so will result in losing all honor. However, a choice method to increase your budo nowadays is to subscribe to the MMA Nation channel on Youtube, and, if the embedded video sucks for any reason, watch it directly on Youtube.
