The fight fans have waiting to see for a year and a half finally happens this weekend at UFC 158. UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will make his eighth consecutive title defense in the night’s main event against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz.
The time has arrived, UFC 154 is upon use and hopefully the welterweight division can get back to some form of normalcy. Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre returns to action after a long absence to take on the interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit to unify the belts.
The UFC welterweight champion returns to action this weekend as Canada’s Georges St-Pierre looks to unify the belts at UFC 154 in Montreal. Also looking to unify the belt will be the interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit who defeated Nick Diaz way back in February by unanimous decision. St-Pierre has been out since April of last year after injuring his knee late last year that required surgery.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has finally made it to Calgary with tonight’s UFC 149 in the Saddledome. The card has seen move change than a vending machine but despite all this turmoil the 11 bout fight card that will go down tonight is a true testament to the depth of the UFC roster.
UFC 149 seemed to be such a cursed fight card but that all changed (hopefully) as all 24 fighters easily made weight today in Calgary. The injuries piled up and the changes were a plenty on the UFC 149 fight card, but the fighters that survived to make on the final card appear ready to go.
Saturday’s UFC 149 is probably the most changed UFC fight card in recent history. Between all the injuries and shuffling around, the card has seen nearly every fight different from originally announced including the loss of the featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Eric Koch. Surprisingly though the UFC pulled it all together and UFC 149 has transformed into a solid fight card.
It seems like we get a card like UFC 149 every year, where the injuries pile up and the card shuffles around to the point of ridiculousness. I must say though, the UFC managed to put together a great batch of match-ups from the players left healthy enough to fight, and a truly intriguing main event. Just because the roster is injured doesn’t mean your bankroll has to suffer a setback though, so let’s make some cash together.
