DALLAS -- Johny Hendricks won the vacant welterweight championship Saturday night, unanimously outpointing Robbie Lawler in five rounds at UFC 171. Tyron Woodley won the co-feature, stopping Carlos Condit to set up a likely title bout against Hendricks in the 170-pound division. Fighting in Hendricks adopted hometown, Lawler opened a cut beside Hendricks right eye in the fourth round. All three judges scored the fight 28-27 for Hendricks. The title was vacated by Georges St. Pierre, who had held it since 2007. In his final defence, St. Pierre took a disputed split decision over Hendricks in November. Would Hendricks feel vindicated if he could fight and defeat St. Pierre? "No, but Id like to. I think Im better now. Im only learning," the 30-year-old said. The 31-year-old Lawler lost the first two rounds, but won the third and fourth before falling short in the final round. "The fifth round. Thats where I lost it in the GSP fight," Hendricks said. "I nearly died again. I was sitting there thinking, Not another GSP. I was thinking, Please call my name." The announcer did. Hendricks improved to 16-2, and Lawler fell to 22-10 with one no contest. "When you leave it up to the judges, thats what happens. I just didnt do enough to win," Lawler said. Hendricks background as a two-time NCAA wrestling champion at Oklahoma State helped him take down Lawler twice. "Wrestling is part of our sport," Lawler said. "Ive wrestled with some high-level guys." Hendricks and Lawler fought cautiously in the first round. Midway through the second, Hendricks landed a succession of punches and kicks. Lawler rallied in the closing minute. Woodley, 31, competed for the University of Missouri against Hendricks and OSU. "Me and Johny have some unfinished business from Big 12 days of wrestling," Woodley said. Woodleys bout ended two minutes into the second round after his leg kick behind Condits left knee caused his right knee to buckle. Condit fell to the octagon floor in pain, and hobbled out of the arena. Woodley is 13-2. "You know whats next," Woodley said. "The title. If I can get to (Condit) and beat him, I can be the world champion." All but the title bout were scheduled for three five-minute rounds. Also on the main card, welterweight Hector Lombard dominated the bloody Jake Shields, winning by unanimous decision. Shields lost a title bout to St. Pierre in 2011. It took light heavyweight Ovince Saint Preux just 1:29 to win by submission with a Von Flue choke against Nikita Krylov. Lightweight Myles Jury, who has won all 14 of his professional bouts, took a unanimous decision over Diego Sanchez. Among the prelims, Alex Garcia of Montreal took a fiercely contested welterweight split decision over Dallas Sean Spencer. Kelvin Gastelum opened a cut on Rick Storys left cheek in each round on the way to a split decision in a welterweight fight. In the only womens bout, bantamweight Jessica Andrade of Niteroi, Brazil, won a split decision against Raquel Pennington.

Cheap Air Jordan 3 Free Shipping . -- A.J. Burnett was happy to escape from New York.NEW YORK, N.Y. - All those snazzy plays by Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez earned them more than tips of the hat from their Kansas City teammates.The Royals trio wound up snagging Gold Gloves, too.It was something that was pretty special to watch, Gordon said.Three Baltimore players also were honoured by Rawlings on Tuesday for fielding excellence, as was St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina for the seventh year in a row.The Royals paid tribute to each other throughout a run to the World Series, tipping their caps after fine plays. Kansas City lost in seven games to San Francisco — none of the Giants won Glove Gloves.The whole entire team, what we did defensively all year, thats part of our game, Hosmer said on a conference call.Gordon, who began his career as a third baseman before becoming a regular left fielder, won for the fourth straight year. Perez at catcher and Hosmer at first base have two wins apiece.Weve said from day one, if you cant play defence, theres probably not a spot for you in our everyday lineup, Royals general manager Dayton Moore said.Perez said he thought Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain, third baseman Mike Moustakas and shortstop Alcides Escobar could win Gold Gloves in the near future.Managers and coaches voted for the awards in their own leagues. The Society for American Baseball Researchs Defensive Index factored about 25 per cent into the results.Gold Gloves have often been among the most discussed and disputed of the post-season awards.More advanced ways of measuring glovework such as Ultimate Zone Rating and Defensive WAR have sometimes overtaken statistics such as errors and fielding percentage that often determined the winners. Reputation also carried a lot of weight over the years.CCincinnati and Philadelphia, the top two teams in the majors this year by fielding percentage, didnt have any winners.ddddddddddddBaltimore centre fielder Adam Jones won for the fourth time, Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy won his third in a row and teammate Nick Markakis won his second in right field.

Its a special honour.Other winners were Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia for the fourth time each, Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons, Braves right fielder Jason Heyward and Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado.To be able to be recognized defensively is pretty special, considering that really wasnt my reputation, coming into the big leagues, Yelich said. Its cool feeling youre a complete player.Molina is tied with Bob Boone for third place for most Gold Gloves by a catcher. Ivan Rodriguez won 13 and Johnny Bench 10 in awards that began in 1957.Gonzalez and Pedroia each earned a $100,000 bonus for winning and Hardy, Jones and Markakis will get $75,000 each. Gordon, Molina and Perez made $50,000 apiece and Simmons and Heyward earned $25,000 each.The Gold Glove triggered contract escalators for Perez, with the price of Kansas Citys options rising from $3.75 million to $3,825,000 in 2017, from $5 million to $5.15 million in 2018 and $6 million to $6.3 million in 2019.
