UFC officials have had a busy last few days, announcing several new fights for upcoming events.

The main event for UFC 171 features Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler colliding to determine the new UFC welterweight champion.

The planned March return to England gained bantamweights Roland Delorme and Davey Grant, as they duke it out at UFC Fight Night 37.
