Fighters Forecast UFC 167 Upset
In July, at UFC 162, Chris Weidman scored one of the biggest upsets of all time when he knocked out Anderson Silva to win the UFC middleweight championship. Fans Octagonside at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas were stunned when a Weidman left hook laid out “The Spider” in the second round, but not everyone was surprised by the result. Now, some of the sport’s best athletes are predicting another long championship reign to end when welterweight king Georges St-Pierre collides with No.1 contender Johny Hendricks this Saturday. UFC 167's main event is the most eagerly-anticipated UFC welterweight title fight in years, with Las Vegas oddsmakers giving the Ada, Oklahoma-born Hendricks the best shot to take the title away from “GSP” in years. The No.1 ranked challenger is currently listed as +205 (or a little over 2-1) to snatch the title away, the narrowest odds offered on any GSP opponent since BJ Penn challenged the Canadian half a decade ago at UFC 94. Here, some of the biggest names in the UFC weigh in on what could be the upset of the year.

Ben Askren becomes unrestricted free agent after Bellator grants 'Funky' unconditional release
Undefeated Welterweight Is Now Unrestricted Free Agent Former Bellator Welterweight Champion and undefeated mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Ben Askren is a free man. The Viacom-owned promotion has said goodbye to the "Funky" wrestler after failing to come to terms on a new deal, which essentially clears the path for Askren to sign with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), no strings attached. From Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney: "I've said it many times, Ben's a completely one-dimensional fighter who is utterly dominant in that dimension. I had a number of discussions with Ben and it became clear it was time for both parties to move in different directions. We've relinquished any right to match here and Ben can sign with whoever he chooses to sign with. Ben's been at Bellator since the start of his career, I respect him and what he's accomplished and wish him the best wherever he goes."
