Coming soon: UFC 167
Celebrating 20 years of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, UFC 167 takes Las Vegas on Saturday with a pretty intriguing card. Atop it is a battle between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and top challenger Johny Hendricks. Also on the lineup is a bout featuring former light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen. Who wins these and the other formidable fights?
Everyone loves trilogies -- Hollywood, the gaming industry, booksellers -- and UFC is no exception. Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard will face off for the third time at UFC 136, in a rivalry that saw Maynard beat Edgar once and both fighters fighting each other to a standstill the second time. Edgar's loss to Maynard is the only blemish on his résumé, one that he'll no doubt seek to avenge this weekend. Can he pull it off?
