Two of those nine were champions who successfully defeated their titles and five of the other seven also walked away with victories this past month.

If you’re looking for changes to the latest fighter rankings, take a peak at the welterweight rankings and then look no further. The slow month really kept things the same but the lone UFC event in March did reshuffle the ranks of the welterweight division.
Yet another UFC fighter has tested positive for marijuana metabolites following a recent fight inside the Octagon. I know what you’re think but the answer it no, it was not Nick Diaz, the UFC 158 test results have not come back yet. Instead it was the former contestant on The Ultimate Fighter, Alex Caceres, who was coming off a split decision win over Kyung Ho Kang earlier this month at UFC on FUEL TV 8.
It was a fight that had people buzzing like nothing else, as hardcore and casual fans alike longed for Saturday night to arrive. The out-of-ring antics of Nick Diaz sold the fight, both for fans of the rebellious Stockton native and fans of Georges St. Pierre that wanted to see him unleash hell upon his opponent.
Saturday’s UFC 158 was filled with welterweight action, capped off by the UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre successfully defending his title against Nick Diaz. The fight card had a total of six welterweight bouts in all and the nights outcomes altered the direction of many of the division’s top fighters.
The fans have been waiting a very long time for tonight’s UFC 158 main event. The hype and trash talking is over, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will defend his title against the former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz.
It’s fight night and the UFC 158 main event between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz is just hours away. Despite coming off a loss to Carlos Condit for the interim welterweight title and then serving a year-long suspension, Diaz is still fighting for the title tonight.
Nick Diaz has been on a serious roll these days hyping his fight with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. The last few days has seen the former Strikeforce welterweight champion miss the UFC 158 open workouts and taken over a conference call and press conference leading up to Saturday’s fight. Diaz has been must see TV but his path of destruction has left a laundry list of questions.
