UFC 201: Lawler vs Woodley – Winners and Losers

The story of UFC 201 began as a combination of lowered expectations, not much fan support, fatigue from the previous bunch of events in the month of July alone, and the high expectations and name value of UFC 202.

The problem with that line of thinking, however, is the fact that sometimes we get, well… this. We end up with a strange little diamond in the rough that doesn’t have the biggest names yet still manages to provide a degree of action, showcases talent, and even moments that make changes — however small they may be — to the history of the sport and the direction it heads in.

From the resurrection of the career of a man that was seen as fading and done, to a new de facto title challenger at strawweight to give a dominant champion fits, to the title changing hands in what is arguably the second deepest and most talent-rich division in the sport. All of this, all of the performances we saw had potential and could have gone in various directions. And that makes this a far more solid card than what many were expecting, which is one of the most pleasant kind of surprises.
