UFC 158: Georges St Pierre vs Nick Diaz extended previewPosted on March 10, 2013, 03:45 PM by Rory Kernaghan
Its safe to say we are all excited about the upcoming bout between long-time welterweight champ Georges St Pierre, and outspoken 'Stockton Bad Boy' Nick Diaz. The two have had a heated rivalry which will be settled at UFC 158 in Quebec, Canada.
The home advantage will be going to the champion in his second bout since returning from an injury, which saw him out of competition from April 2011 until November of 2012 when he beat Carlos Condit by unanimous decision at UFC 154.
The fight earned both St Pierre and Condit fight of the night honors, and the champion showed composure in the face of adversity after being rocked in the third round by a head kick.
Diaz has just served a one year suspension after failing a drugs test following his UFC 143 fight against Carlos Condit. Prior to the Condit fight Diaz was on an eleven fight win streak spanning 4 years.
