UFC 167 emanates from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas this Saturday night, with a star studded main card lineup that includes Georges St-Pierre, Chael Sonnen, Rory MacDonald and Rashad Evans. Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks. Last weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 my #TeamLynch got the best of #TeamJC by a score of 9-6. Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter. Also feel free to leave your opinions in the comment section below. Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks (Welterweight Title Fight) James Lynch TSN.ca (@LynchOnSports) Saint-Isidore, Quebec native St-Pierre fights in Las Vegas for the first time since 2009 and makes the ninth defence of his title, when he welcomes knockout artist Hendricks in the main event. Since recapturing his title at UFC 83 in April of 2008, GSP is on one of the most impressive championship runs in UFC history, taking out the likes of Matt Hughes, Carlos Condit and most recently former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz. With just two blemishes on his record, the 32-year old faces his stiffest test yet in the form of Hendricks, who not only boasts an impressive collegiate wrestling pedigree, but a dynamite left hand. Through 16-fights, Hendricks has eight highlight reel knockouts to his credit. The 30-year old Texas native is also on a six-fight win streak, including victories over three of St-Pierres past opponents: Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck and Carlos Condit. Weve seen St-Pierre out wrestle decorated wrestlers in the past in his victories over Hughes, Koscheck and Fitch, but none with the knockout power that Hendricks posses. I agree with Jordans prediction below in that its entirely possible the southpaw Hendricks connects on St-Pierres chin and earns a knockout victory, but if that does happen, expect it in either the first or second round. With that said, the former Oklahoma State University wrestler has never faced an opponent like St-Pierre. To ensure victory Saturday night, St-Pierre purchased a UFC-sized octagon for his Tristar gym in Montreal and also brought in the last man to defeat Hendricks, 22-7 Rick Story as a training partner. His team, led by head trainer Firas Zahabi does an excellent job of pre-fight preparation for his star fighter. Its because of this we should expect the French-Canadian fighter to emerge victorious on Saturday night. Add in the fact that Hendricks has never fought five rounds before and that St-Pierre had to overcome adversity in the past (at UFC 154 when Condit head kicked him late in their fight, St-Pierre still managed to come back and win) This experience should serve St-Pierre well as he looks for his 25th professional victory. Dont expect a highlight reel finish, but GSP will get the job done and earn a unanimous decision victory in what very well could be his last octagon appearance. There are rumors swirling that should GSP win on Saturday, hell vacate the title and retire to give way to training partner Rory MacDonalds welterweight title aspirations. Stay tuned. St-Pierre via unanimous decision Jordan Cieciwa TSN Radio 1290 (@FitCityJordan) Nine times out of 10, Georges St-Pierre beats Johny Hendricks. He out wrestles, out strikes, and out lasts him every time. The only problem in this equation is the south paw stance, and the strange angle that Hendricks can rocket that left hand from. The mistake that Hendricks will make is to come out guns blazing in the first two rounds. You wont get GSP to make a mistake under pressure. If Hendricks puts too much out in those first few minutes, he wont get the chance to throw the big bomb in the later rounds. Georges will wrap Johny up like a blanket if he gets him tired, then fans of the big left hand knock out will see side control, and short elbows for the last couple rounds and GSP will earn yet another decision win. My money is going on Hendricks, because I have that strange feeling in my stomach. Im hoping Hendricks closes the distance slow and starts to make Georges work for a takedown in the first two rounds, then hopefully start the third round off with a bang. Hendricks has to realize he is fighting Tri Star and Jackson MMA. They will have the tape and a gameplan. He needs to show something new. If he doesnt have anything, then he wont win. Hendricks via third round knockout Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen Lynch Friends? Co-workers? This doesnt seem like a typical Sonnen matchup as weve seen in the past, but the promotion has matched up "UFC Tonight" co-hosts Evans and Sonnen together in a light heavyweight affair. The matchup itself is intriguing, but entertainment wise not so much. When Sonnen is booked on a UFC pay-per view there is usually some sort of pre-fight trash talk or buildup to the actual contest. This bout has had little to no buildup or anticipation, which is surprising for the co-main event slot. Either way, fans can expect a wrestling clinic between two fighters who are coming off much needed victories. For Sonnen, after losing two straight to Anderson Silva and Jon Jones, there was immediate talk of retirement. Instead, former Team Quest fighter decided to give the light heavyweight division another go, and bounced back with an impressive first-round submission over former UFC 205lb champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC Fight Night 26. Evans meanwhile, suffered an embarrassing loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156 and got back on the winning track in his last bout, a split decision win over Dan Henderson at UFC 161. Its no secret Sonnen is going to try to out wrestle the former Michigan State standout and use his ground and pound to earn points. The TUF 2 winner Evans has a 66% takedown defense percentage, which is decent, but likely wont be good enough against a fellow NCAA Division I wrestler like Sonnen. We know Evans has knockout power, as seen in his victories over Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin, but Sonnen has proved that he has a very durable chin, even in his losses to Silva and Jones. This one is honestly a coin flip, but expect this fight to go this distance. Ill pick the underdog "The American Gangster" whos wrestling should be the difference in this fight. Sonnen via unanimous decision JC Well, Sonnen is finally fighting an athlete that should be in his sights. Sonnen has not proven himself a champion contender. Although, he has hung in the best of them, like Silva and Jones. Thats what makes this fight interesting. Chael Sonnen has fought the absolute best in the business for his last three fights. He is going to be razor sharp for a fight with Rashad Evans, who has looked less than impressive in his last few fights. Rashad is going to need to get back to his old bag of tricks. That speed and timing is going to be critical to win this fight. Just like Evans vs. Henderson, this will be a slower fight that leans towards the clinch specialist Chael Sonnen. That is of course, unless Evans puts some emphasis on getting points. I feel that Evans knows what he is getting into, Sonnen hasnt been in this kind of a match for a while. Watch Evans secure points and push for control of the Octagon. This will be a decision, and I think its going to the fighter who just barely squeaked out a decision in his last fight. Evans via unanimous decision Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler Lynch A pair of welterweights square off and look to add their names to the 170lb title picture, as 15-1 Canadian MacDonald goes to war with 31-fight veteran Lawler. Despite riding a five-fight win streak, MacDonald didnt do himself any favors in his last outing, a lackluster three-round unanimous decision victory over Jake Ellenberger at UFC on FOX 8. The 24-year old seemed to be content in scoring points and not engaging over the uninspiring three-round contest. Aiming for his "lucky" seventh UFC victory, an impressive win over Lawler would certainly change the mind of fans and the UFC brass. Meanwhile since returning to the UFC and dropping to his natural weight class of welterweight, "Ruthless" has looking nothing short of spectacular. In his UFC debut he dispatched former title challenger Josh Koscheck in the first round and followed that up with an impressive head kick knockout over Strikeforce veteran Bobby Voelker. The easy path to victory for Quesnel B.C. born MacDonald is using his underrated ground game, as in nine of Lawlers losses; five have been by way of submission. No doubt the ATT product Lawler will want to keep this fight standing and go for his 19th career knockout, but as MacDonald showed in his loss to Carlos Condit, he has a very durable chin. Physically MacDonald will be the bigger fighter, having a one-inch height and 2.5-inch reach advantage. The Tristar fighter has all the tools to win this fight, and should he not try and test his standup against the dangerous 31-year old, hell win this fight. Since Lawler has improved his wrestling, its unlikely MacDonald will sink in a submission that easily, instead expect MacDonald to edge out a unanimous decision victory getting takedowns and the better of the exchanges. MacDonald via unanimous decision JC Who is Robbie Lawler? You cant even answer that any more. He has changed up his career a few times. The one thing I know, is that he has looked sharp, razor sharp, in his last couple outings. Hes also had some outstanding coaching over his career. Josh Koscheck stood in with him, and Robbie made him look like a rookie in the league. Ranked #10 in his division by the UFC, it will be interesting to see how he does against his opponent, #3 ranked Rory MacDonald. This is not going to be a legends match like the one Rory had with BJ Penn. This is going to be a very tough fight with a man on a mission. It cant be denied, Robbie Lawler on his "A" game is a top ten competitor. Lawler goes into most fights the smaller fighter, and thats going to be the case here. Rory will use his 2..5 inch reach advantage to keep Lawler out of range, however, a couple body shots from Lawler may change the tone of this fight. Watch for Robbie to attack the body early with some of the hardest punches in the business. Once he takes the steam out of Rory, this should be his fight for the taking. Robbie Lawler via unanimous decision Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley Lynch Two former NCAA Division I wrestlers collide in a 170lb contest as former UFC welterweight title challenger Koscheck battles former Strikeforce welterweight title challenger Woodley. The Ultimate Fighter Season 1 contestant knows at this point in his career, his back is up against the wall. After winning a controversial split decision over Mike Pierce back at UFC 143, the Fresno, California native has lost two straight to Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler. Woodley meanwhile was considered the next "must see" prospect out of the Strikeforce organization. Heading into his Strikeforce welterweight title fight with Nate Marquardt in 2012, Woodley was a perfect 10-0, with wins over Paul Daley and Tarec Saffiedine. That hype came to an immediate halt when Marquardt knocked out Woodley in the fourth round. The 31-year old would rebound in his UFC debut, earning a first round knockout over former IFL welterweight champion Jay Hieron. In his last bout, the ATT pupil would suffer a lackluster loss to Jake Shields back at UFC 161. Many pundits are picking Woodley to win, as hes the faster and more explosive standup fighter. But experience-wise, Woodley has only fought 13-times compared to Koschecks 26 fights. In addition, the 35-year old Koscheck could be facing potential unemployment with a loss on Saturday night, so I expect him to be hungrier than his younger adversary. Look for the Dethrone Basecamp founder to have an impressive showing, as hell outpoint Woodley over three rounds and earn a unanimous decision victory. Koscheck via unanimous decision JC Exactly what Lynch said, Woodley is the faster and more explosive standup fighter. Koscheck is on the decline ever since his loss to Georges St-Pierre back at UFC 124. If you think about it, his last big win really was against Paul Daley at UFC 113 and that was back in May of 2010. Woodley meanwhile, had a close loss to Jake Shields and also knocked out tough IFL veteran Jay Hieron in his UFC debut. Koscheck has been knocked out before, expect the same thing to happen again on Saturday night, as Woodley will connect, sometime in the second round. Woodley via second round knockout Tim Elliot vs. Ali Bagautinov Lynch In a bout that is sure to bring fireworks to open up the main card, 26-year old Elliot takes on Jackson MMA product Bagautinov in a flyweight affair. The 10-3-1 Elliot is on a two-fight win streak since dropping his promotional debut to John Dodson back at UFC on FOX 3. The Russian Bagautinov meanwhile is coming of an impressive UFC debut when he knocked out Marcos Vinicius back at UFC Fight Night 28. Expect the Grindhouse MMA product Elliot to come out more aggressive and outpoint his opponent over three rounds to earn the judges decision. Elliot via unanimous decision JC What better way to ring in the 20th year of business than a fly weight action packed event. The lights will come up and these two athletes will go at it with a lot of speed and explosive athleticism. Tim Elliot vs Ali Bagautinov has the potential to be the fight of the night. Elliot got a lot of attention when he debuted to a fight with John Dodson, thats a tough way to earn a living. Elliot won the fight convincingly and if thats how he comes out against Bagautinov I expect a fantastic fight, and another TKO for Tim Elliot. Elliot via 2nd round TKO Undercard Picks: Lynch: Dunham, Leites, Story, Perez, High, Pettis, Villante JC: Cerrone, Leites, Story, Perez, High, Campuzano, Villante Also be sure to tune into the "Weigh-In" on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg every Saturday as myself, Jordan and "Big Marv" Timog go toe to toe discussing the hottest topics in MMA.

If you can get it back closer to regular hockey and have it decided that way; that would be my preference.” “I dont think its a knock on the shootout, I think more of the managers would like to see it end in overtime,” added Washington Capitals GM George McPhee.

This week, they discuss the NCAAs revenue sharing, Don Zimmer, soccer language and Super Bowl 50.CLEVELAND -- Luol Deng misses his close friends in Chicago. The Bulls seem to be getting along fine without him. D.J. Augustin scored 27 points in a start for Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson matched a career high with 26 filling in for Carlos Boozer as the Bulls improved to 7-2 since trading the popular Deng with a 98-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Augustin and Mike Dunleavy hit 3-pointers down the stretch to pace the Bulls, who have won three straight, nine of 11 and moved over .500 for the first time since Nov. 22. Chicago reached the seasons mid-point at 21-20, not where many expected the Bulls to be sitting after dealing Deng. The two-time All-Star was a non-factor in his first game against his former team, which traded him for draft picks on Jan. 6. Deng went just 2 of 11 from the field and scored 11 points in 40 minutes. "It was strange," Deng said. "Its the Cavs versus the Bulls and not so much about me. In terms of me, I could have played better." Joakim Noah had 18 rebounds for the Bulls, who appeared to be looking toward the future when they traded Deng, not long after losing superstar Derrick Rose to a season-ending injury. But the Bulls arent fading away as coach Tom Thibodeau has them playing with their usual defensive tenacity. Dengs not around, but the Bulls remain as tough as always. "Its one of the things I respect about our team," Thibodeau said. "They respond to every challenge. They have a lot of heart. Theyre playing together. Each day they have the right approach. If someones out, the next five get in there and get the job done. Were short-handed. We understand how hard we have to play to give ourselves a chance to win." Kyrie Irving scored 26 to lead Cleveland, which has dropped the first two games of a five-game homestand. The Cavs have lost all of their momentum after going 3-2 on the road. "Were not making any excuses here," Irving said. "Weve got to pick it up." Although they were missing two starters in Boozer (calf) and Hinrich (hamstring), the Bulls had more than enough to hold off the Cavaliers. Making just his fourth start, Gibson scored 12 in the third as the Bulls opened a 71-62 lead entering the fourth. Dunleavys 3-pointer extended Chicagos lead to 12 in the opening minute of the final quarter, but the Cavs fought back behind Dion Waiters and pulled to 84-81 on his 3.dddddddddddd However, Dunleavy scored again, Noah made a layup and Augustin buried a 3-pointer to give the Bulls a 91-81 lead. The Cavs were still within 93-87 when Dunleavy knocked down another 3-pointer with 38 seconds left to seal Chicagos win. Dunleavy added 22 points for the Bulls, who got just four points from their bench. Waiters had 15 for Cleveland. Deng spent 10 seasons with the Bulls, and the 28-year-old knew it would be challenging to oppose his ex-teammates. "Its definitely going to be weird because its guys Im really close with and it feels like just yesterday I was going to battle with them and now Im going against them," he said at the morning shootaround. Following the game, Deng acknowledged it was difficult to face players he knows so well. "I tried to really play the game within myself," he said. "They played good D. I missed shots. Im not happy with my performance. Thats a good defensive team. Weve just got to keep growing." Before the opening tip, Deng ran over to Chicagos bench and hugged Thibodeau and shook hands with all of the teams assistant coaches. "It says a lot about who he is," Thibodeau said. "That didnt surprise me." Gibson said there were some awkward moments going against Deng. "It felt weird," Gibson said. "There was tension before the game because we werent talking. Its like Tibs said, We love him but were going to go knock him on his butt if he tries to score. After the game, were going to be friends." Outworked by a depleted Chicago team, the Cavs fell behind by 10 early in the second quarter and were down 35-29 when Irving heated up. He made five consecutive 3-pointers in the final 5:45 of the second quarter to give the Cavs a 44-43 lead at halftime. NOTES: Deng spent nearly 20 minutes after the shootaround discussing his days in Chicago, which ended shortly after he rejected a three-year, $30 million contract extension, an offer and pay cut that he and his agents didnt find adequate. Asked if he would consider returning to the Bulls as a free agent this summer, Deng took a swipe at Chicagos front office. "Maybe theyll offer me three years, $30 million," he cracked. "That might be an option to take." ... Noah has recorded at least 10 rebounds in 14 straight games, the longest stretch in franchise history since Dennis Rodman posted 43 straight in 97.
