Georges St-Pierre UFC 129-478x270UFC president Dana White recently stated that Georges St-Pierre would next defend his belt against Johny Hendricks, and that the bout would likely take place in Las Vegas.

TVA Sports on Tuesday reported the St-Pierre vs. Hendricks would take place on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas. UFC Tonight confirmed the report, noting that the event, likely to be dubbed UFC 167, would also serve as the UFC’s 20thanniversary show.

St-Pierre has not fought in Las Vegas since he faced Thiago Alves in the co-main event of the promotion’s massively successful UFC 100 event.

No venue has been revealed for UFC 167, but it will likely take place at either the MGM Grand Garden Arena or the Mandalay Bay Events Center, the promotion’s two staple venues in its hometown.

The fight has been a long time coming for Hendricks, whose last four victories include Carlos Condit, Martin Kampmann, Josh Koscheck, and Jon Fitch. The Kampmann and Fitch victories were both first-round knockouts.

White initially held out hope that the promotion’s 20th anniversary event could be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City, but professional mixed martial arts has yet to receive sanctioning in the state.
