I don't think anyone had Robbie Lawler pegged for any sort of title shot, let alone next week's welterweight title. His final Strikeforce fight was a clear loss to middleweight Lorenz Larkin, but Lawler has won his last 3, including an upset win over Rory MacDonald, and he'll face Johny Hendricks for the belt that Georges St-Pierre recently abdicated.
It's a big night for the welterweights in general, with Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley in the co-main event, plus Jake Shields versus Hector Lombard. Elsewhere, Diego Sanchez battles Myles Jury at lightweight, while Nikita Krylov makes his LHW debut against Ovince St. Preux.
Please note that with Fox Sports 1 airing the Big East College Basketball Tournament final, Fox Sports 2 has been assigned duties of covering the televised prelims. If you have the channel then good for you, otherwise ... hopefully that basketball game is good. I hear Creighton is a good team this year.
