The highly anticipated welterweight showdown between champion Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks will not go down in October as originally expected, but November instead. While speaking to the media today in Winnipeg, UFC President Dana White revealed that the promotion is looking to bout GSP vs. Hendricks for an event in Las Vegas; however, no venue or specific date has been set. The card will likely end up being numbered UFC 167.

So, if everything goes according to plan, that means MMA fans can look forward to Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson in September, Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos III in October, and then GSP vs. “Bigg Rigg” in November. That is quite the run of fights.

Hendricks has locked up a title shot by scoring six consecutive wins, and by recording victories over notable opponents like Martin Kampmann, Carlos Condit, Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck. Of course, his first round destructions of Kampmann and Fitch were the most memorable. On account of his NCAA Division 1 wrestling skills and his ridiculous power, Hendricks could be GSP’s toughest test to date.

St. Pierre continues to sit atop the welterweight ranks thanks to decision wins over Condit and most recently Nick Diaz, after returning from knee surgery last year. The highly regarded fighter has won 11 consecutive bouts now heading into his fight with Hendricks, and he’s done so while fighting the division’s best.

news flash. GSP already won.

aint no one is good enough for the rush

he needs to fight more oh and finish more fights hes starting to get boring!!!

If fist-fighting is boring then what do you consider baseball?

Chest fighting u mean with gsp and its not fist fighting its mma u fool

He needs to fight more? This will be his 3rd title defense in a year. Anderson hasn’t defended his belt in a year.

GSP will remain as an UFC Welterweight Champ via unanimous decision!

I’am not impressed with your performance.
