UFC 167: Post-fight Press Conference

Today is the day and the place to be, the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tonight the UFC puts on one of its best cards of the year and with it, one of the most anticipated fights of not only the last 12 months, but also, one of the most anticipated fights of Georges St. Pierre’s illustrious career.

Tonight the welterweight champ puts his title on the line for a ninth consecutive time and attempts to extend his winning streak to an incredible 12 straight wins. Across the cage from him this evening will be what many consider to be the greatest threat GSP has ever faced, Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks.

Bigg Rigg packs a great deal of power and has a wrestling pedigree that stands him to be a formidable challenge to the champion. However, “Rush” brings his own masterful skillset to the fight and further, the champ appears to be motivated and in high spirits going into the match.

Further still, GSP seems to have finishing Hendricks on his mind. He has spoken of his frustration in not finishing fights and the other day when the champ was rolling with Royce Gracie, he even made note of it to the Jiu Jitsu master.

This should be a great card  and it should be an incredible night of MMA for the fans to witness.

If you'd care to cath the Q & A from the post-fight presser, the conference begins (roughly) 30 minutes after the card terminates.

    You just need to see GSp's face to know who won the fight...Dana White is the biggest control freak...he flips out the moment a fighter doesn't sing his song....Gsp just got the fuk beaten out of him and wants time off...He has made the ufc hundreds of millions of dollars since he has been champ...

    Hmmm, Gus got robbed in the Jones fight, but you didn't see Dana ***** about that. Maybe he wanted Tito's record erased. This time, he thinks Johnny is younger and George is on the down hill. Dana you ****. Nothing taken away from Hendricks. Dana is now seeing a younger money maker in front of him.

    You have to beat the champ to be the champ. Gus came close and definitely matched Jones, but didn't beat him. Johny just beat the living $hit out of gsp. Apples and oranges dude.

    Hendricks won...but he will NEVER be the money maker GSP is. GSP has an entire country behind him. As far as money goes...he should want GSP to win a bad decision...its sets up a rematch. GSP and the UFC make tons of money for each other. The difference is that UFC make more money and GSP sacrifices aspects of his life.

    Didn't Georges say he had some personally problems he needs to take care of? What part of that can't Dana understand. The guy needs some time off to take of care of his personal issues, so what's the big deal, baby Hitler?

    you are 100% correct. GSP has singlehandedly brought the biggest UFC market to Dana...and this is what he gets. He is starting to make guys like Rampage and Tito seem less crazy.

    GSP will dominate Bellator
