Georges St. Pierre, quite possibly the greatest welterweight of all time, attempted to defend his 170-pound title tonight (Sat., Nov. 16, 2013) against Johny Hendricks in the main event of UFC 167: "St. Pierre vs. Hendricks" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Hendricks, to his credit, despite being so tired, met St. Pierre in the middle of the cage and fired off with jabs and left hands. Volume seemed to take precedent early but that quickly gave way to headhunting.
A brief clinch led to an odd slip from the champion and just like that, the challenger was on top in superior position with time running out. He was staying active, too, doing his best not to get stood up so he could score more and more points.
Surprisingly enough, Hendricks let him up. Once they were standing, "GSP" was bleeding everywhere. They continued exchanging punches until St. Pierre shot in for a takedown. He was quickly reversed once they ended up against the fence. It turned into a stalemate rather quickly, which was bad for "Rush" considering how he certainly seemed to be down on the scorecards.
