Video: Pros pick Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks for UFC 167

Who knows better than the pros?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just three days away from its UFC 167: "St. Pierre vs. Hendricks" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which pits longtime welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks in the headlining affair this Saturday night (Nov. 16, 2013) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While there has been plenty of back-and-forth from mixed martial arts (MMA) fans over who wins this 170-pound contest, it's about time we kick it on over to the pros to hear what they have to say.
