On Saturday, Nov. 16, the UFC held UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre put his belt on the line against hard-hitting No. 1 contender, Johny Hendricks. The Canadian St-Pierre sought his ninth straight title defense, having defeated Nick Diaz by unanimous decision at UFC 158 in March. Hendricks, meanwhile, entered the contest riding a six-fight winning streak, with three coming via first-round knockout.

The co-main event featured former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans against three-time UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen. Evans snapped a two-fight skid in June with a decision win over Dan Henderson, while Sonnen also got back in the win column with a first-round submission of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in August.

Also on the main card was a pair of welterweight contests as longtime veteran Robbie Lawler clashed with rising contender Rory MacDonald and former UFC title challenger Josh Koscheck faced off with former Strikeforce title challenger Tyron Woodley. Rounding out the pay-per-view portion of the event was a flyweight contest between Tim Elliott and Ali Bagautinov.

The 12-fight event kicked off at 6:45 p.m. ET with three fights streaming live on the promotion’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Four additional bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the pay-per-view main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET.

  • Fighters can improve and send shock waves! Rory didn’t do his fancy foot work like when he fought an old bj! He met the power and experience of real weight contender later Rory you got nocked and size and strength where equal your arsenal ain’t shit with real 170. Gsp was out powered as well the Diaz are tuff but light so the muscle matters both of these Canadians can’t do shit with real striker power bomb wrestlers! Everyone noticeably saw gsp being work against the fence having problems taking Johnny boy down, slim compared to nick Diaz.
