Georges St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) was feeling right at home this past Saturday when he fought Nick Diaz (26-9 MMA, 7-6 UFC).

The UFC welterweight champion, in front of his home crowd, beat up Diaz for five rounds for his 11th straight victory, 11th UFC title fight win and eighth consecutive title defense.

The main event was a fight years in the making. Fans first began talking about it when Diaz was Strikeforce’s welterweight champion. Then Diaz finally came to the UFC. But a planned fight with GSP was scratched when Diaz failed to show up for a pair of news conferences. Then, after beating B.J. Penn to get a shot at the champ, Diaz again had to wait when St-Pierre was injured. And after losing to Carlos Condit in an interim title fight, he was suspended for a year for failing a post-fight drug test.

But the stars finally aligned this past weekend, and St-Pierre, a 5-to-1 favorite, swept the judges’ scorecards with a unanimous 50-45 nod.

The promotion went behind the scenes of UFC 158, which took place at Bell Centre in Montreal.
