The UFC will close out the 2013 schedule with back-to-back pay-per-view events at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

As previously announced, the Dec. 28 UFC 168 event, which features the much-anticipated rematch between new middleweight champion Chris Weidman and ex-titleholder Anderson Silva, takes place at the Sin City venue...

Going to 166 Texas and 168 year end event instead

Hendricks has better wrestling. More power in his hands. And unlike GSP he has the heart to go out there and put it ALL on the line. GSP strengths are his cardio game planning and his kicks. That being said I don't think he's going to want to throw many kick because of his fear of fighting off his back. So what do we have? I see it being mostly a stand up boxing match with each guy trying to set up there take downs with there hands. I'm not sure how but Im thinking we will have a new WW champion after UFC 167.

Jonny might have better wrestling but GSP has the best double in the game. GSP by jabs or double legs.

Also, has GSP used his karate at all since becoming champ? He used to have some cool moves before he became afraid of losing.

It would be cool if Andy and GSP both met half way in terms of fighting caution. That way they would both actually fight instead of lay and pray or point and laugh.
