Thread: Georges St. Pierre vs Johny Hendricks UFC title fight date set for Nov. 16 in Vegas

    Georges St. Pierre vs Johny Hendricks UFC title fight date set for Nov. 16 in Las Vegas - MMAmania.com



    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White made the Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks welterweight title bout official last week, and now the highly anticipated fight has a date and location.

    According to a report by Ariel Helwani on Tuesday's (June 18, 2013) edition of "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV, the 170-pound title match up will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 17, 2013.

    At this time a venue has not been announced for the card; however, it will likely take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena or the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

    White has said for a while now that he wants to bring "Rush" back to "Sin City" for his next fight, and now it's official.

    Hendricks earned his shot at the French-Canadian's belt after stringing together six-straight victories inside the Octagon, highlighted by wins over Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck, Martin Kampmann and most recently, former interim UFC champion Carlos Condit.

    The 29-year-old claims he has an "easy as that" game plan to defeat St. Pierre and once he does, expects that he will have to give an immediate rematch and defeat St. Pierre for a second time.

    It was viewed as a possibility that Hendricks was going to get skipped over for a shot at a world championship if St. Pierre opted to participate in a "super fight" with middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

    However, since St. Pierre "absolutely knows" that "The Spider" is going to be defeated by Chris Weidman at UFC 162 next month, he is going forward and taking on the next big challenge in his own weight class.

    Good luck Hendricks, you're gonna need it.....you got your wish.

    Like every GSP fight I'll get the PPV, and I'll be stoked for this fight like every other one. Just like a Bruins game for me, so stressful watching.

    WAR GSP! Unstoppable.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    The good thing about a GSP PPV is that you know you will get your money's worth. They don't end in 1st round KOs.
