GSP is getting his wish.
Fresh off his comeback win over Carlos Condit one month ago, Georges St-Pierre is returning to the Octagon in the spring. The reigning welterweight champion is set to fight Nick Diaz in a title bout at the Bell Centre on March 16, 2013. It’s a fight that St-Pierre has been gunning for in the aftermath of his successful title defence in November, a rematch after Diaz was pulled from their UFC 137 matchup due to Diaz’s no-show at promotional events and then injury forcing St-Pierre out of another matchup back in February.
The bout between GSP and Diaz has clearly touched a nerve with the normally statesman-like St-Pierre, who was quoted as saying that Diaz has “made it personal and I personally can’t wait”. There’s bad blood between the two fighters, which should make for an especially interesting match-up come March.
Other matchups on the UFC 158 card include other welterweight bouts between Canadian Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit, as well as Johny Hendricks taking on Jake Ellenberger.
