After a two-event week for the UFC, it’s once again Fight Week for the UFC with one the most historic shows in the company’s history: UFC 167, which serves as the promotion’s 20th anniversary show.

Here’s the essential information for the card.

UFC 167 START TIME: UFC 167 takes place Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event kicks off with three prelims on MMAjunkie.com (as well as Facebook and Youtube) at 6:45 p.m. ET (3:45 p.m. PT), followed by four more prelims on FOX Sports 1 (8 p.m. ET) and the five-fight main card at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view.

UFC 167 BACKGROUND: In June, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) was first attached to a title defense against top contender Johny Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) in Las Vegas in what would wind up being the UFC’s 20th anniversary show. Soon after, UFC President Dana White said the anniversary show could have been a superfight between then-middleweight champ Anderson Silva and light heavyweight champ Jon Jones at Madison Square Garden had New York legalized MMA earlier in the year. After his win over Mauricio Rua in March, Chael Sonnen (29-13-1 MMA, 7-6 UFC) began campaigning for the co-main event slot on the card against Wanderlei Silva. He’ll coach “TUF: Brazil 3? soon against Silva, but he’ll meet former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans (18-3-1 MMA, 13-3-1 UFC) at UFC 167 instead.
