Dustin FilloyFeatured ColumnistNovember 14, 2013

Even with arguably his stiffest test just around the corner, Georges St-Pierre's peers agree by majority vote that the UFC's welterweight linchpin will defend his strap for the ninth straight time Saturday.

Ten pros picked St-Pierre to prevail in the main event of UFC 167 while seven chose challenger and heavy-handed southpaw Johny Hendricks to come out on top. Seven additional fighters offered their opinions but ultimately couldn't decide on the outcome of the long-awaited 170-pound title clash.

Aggregate betting website Bovada.com has deemed St-Pierre, who hasn't lost since 2007, a 2.7-1 favorite (-270) to best Hendricks (+210).

For those who opt out of watching the video above, here are the results of the 24 pros who offered up picks for the main event of UFC 167.

Pros picking St-Pierre: Cain Velasquez, Brandon Vera, Demetrious Johnson, Anthony Pettis, John Dodson, Nate Marquardt, Wanderlei Silva, Glover Teixeira, James Te Huna and Frankie Edgar.

Pros picking Hendricks: Daniel Cormier, Phil Davis, TJ Grant, Junior dos Santos, Erik Koch, Sara McMann and Darrell Montague.

Undecided: Frank Mir, Chad Mendes, Mark Hominick, Sam Stout, Gray Maynard, Sarah Kaufman and Donald Cerrone.
