UFC 158 St Pierre vs Diaz PosterIt’s a fight that’s been more than a year in the making, but on March 16 Georges St-Pierre will finally face Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in Montreal.

This may be the most personal fight St-Pierre’s ever faced, and Nick Diaz will look to take the welterweight title away from one of the most dominant champions the sport has ever known.

In addition to St-Pierre vs. Diaz, the co-main event features a welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald. Condit decimated MacDonald in the third round of their fight in 2010 after the young Canadian got the best of him through the first 10 minutes.

Condit won by TKO, and now MacDonald get his chance at revenge.

Also on the card, top welterweight contender Johny Hendricks will look to cement his spot atop the division’s contender race when he takes on fellow wrestler, the heavy-handed Jake Ellenberger.

Canadian Patrick Cote will also be on the card as he faces Alessio Sakara in a rematch of their original fight at UFC 154 that ended in disqualification after Sakara blasted Cote with illegal shots to the back of the head.
