MMAFighting.com photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday (Nov. 13, 2013) to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 167: "St-Pierre vs. Hendricks" open media workouts.
Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and division No. 1 contender Johny Hendricks, were on the scene to promote their 170-pound showdown that will be beamed on pay-per-view (PPV) this weekend (Sat., Nov. 16, 2013), also at MGM Grand.
"Rush" caused quite the stir with his special guest trainer, Royce Gracie.
The two fighters who will co-headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event -- Chael Sonnen vs. Rashad Evans -- were also among the "Sin City" contingent required to be photo friendly, joining the likes of Rory MacDonald and Robbie Lawler.
