UFC 167 will take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Georges St. Pierre (24-2) vs. Johny Hendricks (15-1)

St. Pierre is facing arguably his toughest challenge to date. Hendricks has the punching power that not many have and he has a great wrestling background to defend against GSP’s takedown attempts. However, not many truly give credit to the champion for his strategy. In this fight, I expect him to push Hendricks against the cage and wear down his shoulders and arms to slow down his punching power. From there, the champion will mix in strikes and takedowns and earn a hard-fought decision win. UFC 167 FREE PICK – Georges St. Pierre -260

UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT - Chael Sonnen (28-13-1) vs. Rashad Evans (18-3-1)

This should be an interesting fight. The difference between the two is pacing. Evans tends to be cautious and reactionary, while Sonnen likes to come at you. I think Sonnen’s tenacious style will pose a problem for Evans and cause him to be thrown off his game. Look for Sonnen to out-work Evans and score the minor upset. UFC 167 FREE PICK – Chael Sonnen +155

UFC WELTERWEIGHT BOUTJosh Koscheck (17-7) vs. Tyron Woodley (11-2)

This fight is considered even and looks to be pretty even. Woodley is a great all-around fighter, but so is Koscheck. Koscheck uses his wrestling to keep a fight standing, but in this case, I think he knows he is desperate for a win after losing his last two. I expect him to go out and put it all on the line and find a way to finish Woodley in the third round of a great fight. UFC 167 FREE PICK – Josh Koscheck -110
