9 Bouts Official For UFC 158: GSP vs. Diaz | UFC NEWS

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has posted an impressive 10-fight win streak during his reign atop the 170-pound division. On Saturday, March 16, he will look to extend that streak by one more as he steps back into the Octagon in his hometown to face former STRIKEFORCE® champion Nick Diaz at Montreal’s Bell Centre. On the heels of unifying the welterweight title in November 2012 after an 18-month absence due to injury, St-Pierre (23-2) requested the fight against his fiery rival Diaz (27-8-1, fighting out of Stockton, California), telling UFC President Dana White it was “unfinished business.” Diaz agreed.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship will host a press conference on January 23 in Montreal with the main event stars, as tickets for UFC 158: ST-PIERRE vs. DIAZ go on sale to the general public on Saturday, January 26 at 12 p.m. ET at and the Bell Centre box office.

In a compelling welterweight co-main event, Rory MacDonald (14-1, fighting out of Montreal, Canada) will get his shot at redemption as he aims to avenge his only career loss against former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit (28-6, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.). The duo met at UFC 115 in a Fight of the Night bout that saw Condit come from behind and register a TKO win with seconds remaining in the third round. MacDonald comes into the fight after a dominant decision win over UFC legend BJ Penn at UFC on FOX 5 in December. Meanwhile, Condit looks to re-establish his prominence at 170 pounds after an incredible battle with St-Pierre in November.

Completing the welterweight triple-header on the main card, power-punching wrestler Johny Hendricks (14-1, fighting out of Dallas, Texas) meets former US Marine Jake Ellenberger (28-6, fighting out of Lake Forest, Calif. by way of Omaha, Neb.) in a bout with title implications. The hard-hitting Hendricks is confident of his standing in the 170-pound division and looks to add a sixth consecutive win on March 16 to solidify his place as number one contender.

In addition to Montreal’s St-Pierre and MacDonald, six other Canadians will step into the Octagon® at UFC 158 including Calgary’s Nick Ring (13-1) who faces middleweight Chris Camozzi (18-5, fighting out of Lakewood, Colo.) on the main card. Ring was originally scheduled to face Costa Philippou at UFC 154 but had to withdraw at the last minute due to an illness. Camozzi has won three straight, earning his last win via unanimous decision over Luiz Cane.

Making his debut at welterweight, hometown favorite Patrick Côté (19-8) will square off against former STRIKEFORCE fighter Bobby Voelker (24-8, fighting out of Kansas City, Kan.) who will be making his UFC debut. Côté is coming off a disqualification win against middleweight Alessio Sakara at UFC 154, while Voelker comes in on a three-fight win streak.

Other Canadians in action are Jordan Mein (26-8, fighting out of Lethbridge, Alberta) who will make his UFC debut against veteran Dan Miller (16-6, 1 NC, fighting out of Whippany, N.J.), while Toronto’s Sean Pierson (13-6) battles welterweight Rick Story (14-6, fighting out of Vancouver, Wash.), Montreal’s John Makdessi (9-2) returns against Daron Cruickshank (12-2, fighting out of Detroit, Mich.) and Montreal’s Yves Jabouin (18-8) challenges bantamweight Johnny Eduardo (26-9, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).

    On it says that GSP’s opponent for 158 is TBD…?!

  2. Sparta says:

    Diaz is a dead man walking.

    • BJ's life is says:

      just fine there Mr Shocktop. He doesn’t care if you talk shit about him. He just wants you to come to HIS website and be exposed to HIS sponsors/advertisers who continue to pay him!
      Isn’t that cool how life works? BJ makes money when dumbasses like YOU come to his website and spew your loser opinions. And when fans of BJ ridicule YOU, YOU make nothing! God Bless America!

  3. shocktop says:

    I wonder what happened to BJ Penn. No word from him since he got beat into real retirement from MacDonald. How much shame he must feel after getting the worst beating of his life.

    We thought Diaz and GSP gave it to him, nope.. MacDonald beat him back into retirement and made sure he stayed there. Penn does not even have the guts to address his fans.

    Lazy spoiled rich boy. How predictable. As predictable as knowing exactly how he was going to get his ass whipped in every fight since Fitch. Have another burrito and keep telling yourself that you are the best BJ.

    Or just go into backyard brawling with Kimbo Slice. At least there everybody else will gas out in 1 minute just like you.

    • Bob'O says:

      You will never accomplish even 1% of what BJ Penn has accomplished in your worthless, nobody life. You sit back and judge a man who has repeatedly gave his all and shown heart throughout his entire career. The guy has rarely even been stopped. When he rarely loses, it’s usually by decision. He never quits. Show some respect. You’re a piece of shit bro.

      • Corey says:

        very accurate & classy reply Bob’O. I am so tired of these keyboard warriors talking garbage, they have not even entered 1 tournament yet they judge BJ. It would give all of us so much joy to see this dude / chic say it to Bj’s face…of course, they wouldn’t dare.

    • Swaggy J says:

      And you have done what in your life? BJ can do as he pleases, when he pleases, and how he pleases. Kinda like your mom does.

    • GRT 3000 says:

      you just blew your own mind with that post – that’s some genius shit.

    • Jordan Evans says:

      What a brave man u r shocktop. Just another keyboard warrior. I know 100% u could not take 1 punch off of any UFC fighter & remain standing. Grow a set of balls & post your real name if ur gunna talk smack,BJ has earned his place alongside the greats of this sport while u read online forums & talk shit. Bet your family must be proud. Just because you have won a few fights online playing UFC on the playstation does not make u a fighter. Get a life you no hoper

    • hendoooo says:

      LOL spoilt rich boy. I’m pretty sure this guy was dirt poor, surfing with his mates and smoking pot whilst training BJJ on the side. I wouldn’t call that the makings of a rich boy, just a guy who is living his life, unchained by corporate molestation that is our modern society. I know you wrote this post purely to troll and get a reaction, perhaps a minute of fame on BJ Penns own website, but you’re a shit kicker that doesn’t have the balls to mess up that (most likely) already disfigured face of yours, nor will you ever achieve anything other than (again judging from the post written) cleaning toilets and fulfilling your other janitor roles.

      • Bob'O says:

        BJ Penn grew up in a rich family, and got drunk and drove around getting into fights just to choke guys out.

        • Bob'O says:

          Sure, Everyone know’s that I would say such a thing about BJ. You’re a loser who posts with other peoples names. No wonder your ex-girlfriend rode your best friends hog.

        • Bob'O says:

          Where do you come up with this crap? “….No wonder your ex-girlfriend rode your best friend’s hog…..” Does it come from your personal experience? Or do you just have a sick mind? lol

    • hendoooo says:

      And BTW, he did address his fans, about 3 days after the loss saying how he was sorry for the loss and disappointing us (IMO I didn’t care about his loss, I just want him to fight in his true weight division now). Seeing as you are not a fan you wouldn’t have known. Have fun supporting a pimply pompous little shit that is Rory Macdonald (although his fighting skills are quite extraordinary).

    • d says:

      im bet he would whip ur ass !!! shit talkN bitch

    • trolllololol says:

      This troll has trolled. And trolled well. Well done troll. Well done.

      The lolumads are coming…

  4. Dan Jenkins says:

    That’s pretty harsh there shocktop I’m not going to carry on defending BJ because he’s a grown man and can defend himself. Apart from the fact that he’s accomplished more in the sport than you probably have in your whole life would explain why your going on unrelated articles to spew shit about people you don’t even know. Do yourself a favour and get a life dropkick

  5. Steven says:

    So how exactly does Nick Diaz get a title shot after losing his last fight?

    • SimplyPhy says:

      GSP requested the fight, just as the article says.

    • Bob'O says:

      The same way that Chael Sonnen get’s a title shot against Jones after losing to Anderson Silva I would imagine. I understand it’s two different weight classes, but you get my point.

      If it’s a big fight, The UFC will bend the normal procedures for profit and the fans. Which I don’t personally have a problem with.

  6. UFCReality says:

    The champion decided he wanted to fight a top 5 contender in the division. When was it ever stated that #1 had to fight the champion?

  7. jennifer Macchiaverna says:

    Can’t we all agree that Penn has great sportsmanship, which in my opinion holds a lot of weight. Any top contender past, present, or future with the determination and fortitude that Penn has shown in the octagon time and time again, deserves more respect. Yes he may not be in peak condition from his title days but he’s figuring out where he wants to go in his career and just taking a little longer is all. I don’t presume to know anything of Penn but from a long time MMA enthusiast, he is definitely in the top 25 of great fighters.

  8. Michael says:

    A great card

  9. Slim Charles says:

    GSP all da way!

  10. Bacon says:

    I hope Rory gets beat and GSP since they won’t ever fight each other because there homolism.

  11. TMoney says:

    Diaz vs Hendricks makes more sense. Since when is a guy coming off a loss and a substance suspension earn a title fight. The UFC needs to go back to a tournement style like Bellator and Pride. It’s no longer best fighters in the division it’s a f’n popularity contest now. Bellator being free and frequent fights with top level competition is quickly becoming the better organization.

  12. Bob'O says:

    Bob’O correction… Bj quit in rd 4 GSP fight. So yes he hardly ever quits. But he has quit he told his corner to throw in the towel cuz he did not want to fight anymore. And I don’t blame him that was a smart decision I love bj and just because he quit in one fight does not mean that he is weak he has a smart fighter iq and has the heart of a lion! But he has quit…

    • Bob'O says:

      That’s great, but next time why don’t you allow me to correct myself If I choose to instead of posting with my name? I guess you could have said something bad, but That is so gutless and cowardly anyway. So sick of that bs.

      I have no clue why this Website allows people to use loyal members names as if they are them? It’s a complete joke. The user name needs to be connected to the e-mail, or no post. Either that, or force those who want to post here to register.

      Why allow people to dishonor this Website?

      Pedro, You guys gonna allow these douche bags to use our names? What if it was your name being used bro? Hopefully the new website will fix this problem.

      • Bob'O says:

        You are really an entitled little shit aren’t you?? This site doesn’t need little babies like you crying all the time. Can’t you take it for what is was, and have fun with it? Little f***er.

      • Bob'O says:

        I called this website a complete joke. I am a keyboard warrior and called BJ Penn’s website a complete joke but I still live on here trying to seem like I know something about something. But really I am the same garbage that I show so much distain for. I am Bob’O. And I try to act like I am better than everybody.

        • Bob'O says:

          You’re a coward who uses other peoples names. You would never run your mouth to my face. You’re gutless. People here know when it’s really me speaking, they are smarter than you.

        • Bob'O says:

          NOT ONLY would I say all of this shit and more to your ugly face, I would put my fist in it as well. A piece of shit keyboard warrior like you that thinks he is better than everybody else are ALWAYS pussy’s. You’re lack of self esteem is obvious to EVERYBODY that reads your drivel and crying you do all the time. Entitled little spoiled brat.

        • Bob'O says:

          Yet you continue to post with my name! Who’s the douche bag here? Everyone can see it’s you bro. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

          Why do you use my name and hide behind it then you gutless turd? You do it to other people here too. How do I think that I am better than everybody? Why, cause I don’t appreciate an idiot like you hiding behind my name you dumbshit?

          Show yourself for who you are, otherwise you’re a joke and everyone here knows it. Now go clean Mommy’s basement and continue to be too afraid to post under your real name and not mine. You = Coward with no name. LMAO!!!

        • Bob'O says:

          Listen up here spoiled brat Bob’O, EVERYBODY and I mean EVERYBODY on here is sick of your bs and attitude. We see you like a annoying gnat that buzzes around being a slight distraction. We have just gotten use to your weaselness. You need to be slapped down every now and then. B1tch-slapped down. So take this as a hard lesson to wise up and treat people better on here or WE will be back!!! lmao….

  13. Thom says:

    Even the Diaz fans know Nick will lose, that includes me. However I’ll still cheer for Nick, hoping for that tiny little chance that he actually wins.

  14. Bob'O says:

    Bitched slapped by a coward who is too scared to post under his own name instead of another’s? LMAO! You’re a gutless turd bro. Nothing more than a worm. You get Mommy’s basement cleaned up yet? They are renting it out, so that means your ass is ouT! LMAO!

    Look, I come here to discuss MMA, you come here to impersonate other posters, insult BJ Penn and troll this website, And why they leave your crap up instead of deleting it one has to wonder about.

    My guess is that when the new Website launches, immature idiots who live with Mommy and Daddy with no life like yourself will be quickly banned if you impersonate others or act like a douche like you have in this entire thread. Have a good one Coward.

    Now get that basement cleaned and find yourself a large card board box cause you’re gonna need it loser. gET oUT! LMAO!!! I bet I am right on the money too. 😉

    • Bob'O says:

      Here is what EVERBODY hears when you type this drivel: “Waaaaaa Waaaaaa Waaaaa Waaaaa, my name is Bob’O and I don’t think my shit stinks. I think you should be banned cuz I know everything.” By your f^^^ked up reasoning, my guess is you will be the first banned for being so rude. Waaaaa Waaaa Waaaaa = Bob’O’s mind. Lol!!

    • Bob'O says:

      Perfect example of why EVERYBODY laughs at you and thinks you are a psycho, cuz you ACTUALLY believe your own fantasies. Just realize that you have been warned, Play Nice or we WILL be back to haunt you in your dreams…Bwahahahahahahah…

      • Bob'O says:

        Sorry faggot, watching the fights now cause I am a real MMA fan, not a poser like you. Enjoy playing with yourself while impersonating others. Sorry Mommy didn’t run cable down to the basement for you yuh dork. LMAO!

        • Bob'O says:

          Pedro please ban me. I am a spoiled little brat and a troublemaker. Look at this bratty behavior I have been displaying. I am such a pipsqueak. I am a disgrace to Not a good role model for the kids on here. Please Pedro ban me, Bob’O, for being worthless and a huge weennie. Please I beg you, ban me!!!

  15. O'Bob says:

    I got bitch slapped by a donkey that I was getting done by in a backyard donkey show at my moms house. Now my name is bassackwards… I still think I am better than everybody. Because I use my real name. Given to me by my mother who is my sister. She was too high on ice to finish writing the name on the birth certivicate! I wish I had more teeth!

    • Bob'O says:

      No dumbshit, I don’t care what name you use as long as it’s not mine or another poster’s. I don’t have a probelm with nick names, just people who impersonate other’s names. It’s not rcket science. Understand what I am saying bro?

  16. Bob'O says:

    Ok I am coming clean for once. I am just so embarrassed by my behavior. I have been holier than though telling others how they should act and say on here while I have been completely hypocritical and doing the exact things I have been accusing others of doing. I am a worm and on too much weed. I am going to take some time and go to rehab and hope to come back and be a better poster and a real role model for others on this site. Also, I have decided to come out of the closet and admit than I am a homosexual. I actually am a woman trapped in a boys body so I will be taking hormones treatments and I will be back as Babs’O. Peace to all and sorry for being such a jerk in the past!XOXO
