"Countdown" to UFC 167 lit up the airwaves tonight (Mon., Nov. 11, 2013) on FOX Sports 1 to help promote the upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Saturday night (Nov. 16, 2013) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It's a 20th Anniversary special, which will be headlined by its supposed biggest box office draw, Georges St. Pierre.
That's right, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) turns 20 this week. And it will rely on its most reliable commodity to bring home the show when "Rush" puts his Welterweight belt on the line in the main event against power-punching top division contender, Johny Hendricks.
In the co-main event of the evening, Light Heavyweight standouts -- and "UFC Tonight" contemporaries -- Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen will put their friendship aside for 15 minutes to entertain the crowd in "Sin City" and move one step closer to another coveted world championship opportunity in the future.
Or, in the case of Sonnen, a coaching gig opposite arch enemy Wanderlei Silva on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil 3."
Check out the "Countdown" replay to the Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks main event above and the other two marquee UFC 167 matches, including the Welterweight clash between Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler, below.
