With little over 24 hours left before the start of UFC 167, the 20th anniversary fight card put together by MMA's preeminent fight promotion, the excitement shared by combat sports fans is almost palpable.

Tensions between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and No. 1 contender Johny Hendricks are nearing their limits. There's little doubt that tomorrow night's main event will be worthy of the occasion. 

Nevertheless, though the evening may focus on the title fight, UFC 167 is stacked from stem to stern.

Tucked into the online preliminary card, we have the debut of Sergio Pettis, younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. If he manages to be half as explosive and dynamic as his older counterpart, fans are sure to be in for a treat.

Capping off the televised prelims, Donald Cerrone will be squaring off against Evan Dunham—considering that both fighters exhibit brilliant technique and skill, this bout is a wonderful segue to the evening's main card.

Let's take a look at the entire fight card and the starting time slots of each section.

Will GSP's meticulous game planning pay dividends, allowing him to elude and outsmart Hendricks' thumping left hand—or will the contender stun the world by turning the lights out on the champion, whose dominance over the 170-pound division has gone undiminished for over half a decade?

Will Chael Sonnen outwork Rashad Evans en route to his Ultimate Fighter stint in Brazil, or will Evans stop him before his grinding style can even get underway?

And in arguably the top contender for Fight of the Night, will Rory MacDonald's cold, calculated approach allow him to pick apart a bloodthirsty Robbie Lawler, or will his ascendancy to the No. 1 contender spot come to a screeching halt courtesy of Lawler's unique form of savagery?

I don't know the outcomes, but I do know that when sparks fill the air and fists start flying, the answers will reveal themselves in an exciting manner worthy of the UFC banner.
