The time is drawing near.  In Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday November 16th UFC 167 will take place and a bout that many fight fans have been anticipating will finally be held.  Georges St. Pierre, the Canadian phenom, current Welterweight Champion and 32 year old expert grappler with a 24-2 record will face off against Johny Hendricks the 30 year old Oklahoma native, with a devastating left cross and a 15-1 record, who’s reputation for TKOs is only matched by his uniquely characteristic beard!

Hendricks put on quite a show for the fans at UFC 158 when he went all 3 rounds with Carlos Condit.  Although he didn’t knock out the former interim Welterweight Champion he was more than able to hold his own.  Fighting through with a broken hand and not giving an inch to Condit the entire fight he won by unanimous decision.  This match up between St. Pierre and Hendricks should prove to be quite an entertaining bout.

The question is, how will things turn out?  While St. Pierre has a record of title defenses and excellent conditioning, which almost guarantees he will last all 5 rounds (assuming he isn’t knocked out by “Bigg Rigg”), Hendricks on the other hand hasn’t been fighting 5 round bouts.  Making his way to the title shot for the Welterweight championship, will he perform as many have come to expect?

Luca has been passionate about martial arts and eastern philosophies since childhood. As an athlete, inventor and entrepreneur Luca founded SciFighting on the principal lessons learned from his life experience "fighting" to preserve his health and fitness. Although born with inherently poor and inconsistent health he pushed forward to learn as much as he could about the sciences of technology, medicine and mental health. Years of study, working with physicians and combined analysis finally began to bare fruit by his early twenties. Starting with Fencing, cross training and body building then moving to Boxing, Western Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Eskrima and an eclectic assortment of self defense techniques. Luca's core philosophy is that to win a battle every fighter must balance their mental and physical health. Luca has said that "With well developed technique, conditioning and mental focus a sound strategy will most often win over brute strength alone." It is in this spirit that he passionately advocates for the "Science of Fighting".
