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.
Though Strikeforce is no more, many of its former fighters continue to fight on in the UFC. Showing that the now defunct organization had some great fighters step into its ring, five former Strikeforce fighters hope to continue their winning ways at UFC 158.
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.
Few figures are as polarizing as Nick Diaz, and while he isn't the one to hold the Welterweight strap, he seems to be the focal point of all the talk concerning UFC 158. The title fight isn't the only piece of action at 170lbs, as it seems the entire division has turned out for this event. Hendricks, Condit, Ellenberger and Marquardt all have a claim to stake and you can bet we'll be seeing some fireworks in the cage.
Kevin and George from Uncut Sports "weigh in" on the main event for the upcoming UFC 158 event. This might be one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history, and it's finally going to happen, well hopefully.
This past month saw some exciting MMA action and some not so well, but as a whole the month of February produced several meaningful bouts to MMA Rankings. Champions Renan Barao and Eduardo Dantas made successful title defenses this month and Alexander Shlemenko was crowned the new Bellator middleweight champion.
