For 2,731 days, nobody held the official UFC welterweight title other than Georges St-Pierre. That amazing streak, however, has come to an end. Johny Hendricks has etched his name in UFC lore as the promotion's seventh welterweight champion. How long will his reign last? That's an interesting question. Robbie Lawler gave him everything he could handle, and chances are, he'll surface again within the next 3,000 days. Tyron Woodley looked like a man possessed, and Rory MacDonald, while still developing, isn't an easy fight for anybody. Also, it sounds like St-Pierre's retirement is anything but permanent. As Hendricks mentioned postfight, his work has just begun.
