After yet another long layoff, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre is back to defend his 170-pound crown, this time against Johny Hendricks in the main event of tonight's (Sat., Nov. 16, 2013) UFC 167: "St. Pierre vs. Hendricks" pay-per-view (PPV) from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Back at UFC 158, St-Pierre disposed of Nick Diaz in the main event, while Hendricks took out Carlos Condit in the co-headlining attraction the very same evening. That put the two on a 170-pound collision course that intersects later this evening in "Sin City."
Now it's time to see if the French-Canadian champion's striking defense and grappling game can overcome the equally strong wrestling and ridiculous power of "Bigg Rigg."
It's almost time!
