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.

The event was sure to shake up the division, and it did. However, it did not make the title picture any clearer. There is still a bevy of contenders who are waiting for title shots and a slew of top-tier fighters who are close to throwing their names in the mix.

Now, the page turns to what's next.

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