With a new welterweight champion minted at UFC 171 in Johny Hendricks, the logical question is: Who will be his first challenger?" When the MMA media asked UFC president Dana White at the post-fight press conference, he flatly refused to answer. It's an odd stance, frankly, given how incredibly unclear the title picture is for the 170-pound division at this time.
