UFC 171: Who Every Welterweight Winner and Loser Should Fight Next


UFC 171: Who Every Welterweight Winner and Loser Should Fight Next

UFC 171 featured five welterweight contests on the 13-fight card from Dallas.

Here are suggestions for whom each welterweight winner and loser should fight moving forward from UFC 171.
