Gsp vs Diaz to headline Ufc 158
Besides gsp and rory on the same card, a card I hope to travel for, I think I'm happiest to see GSP active! Quick turnaround!

" Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is all but set for the UFC's return to Montreal.

According to UFC president Dana White, the promotion has offered both GSP and Diaz a fight on March 16 in Montreal for the UFC welterweight title, however, the "deal isn't done" yet, White told Wednesday.

Diaz's manager Cesar Gracie confirmed the fight has been offered to Diaz, however, he said Diaz has yet to sign the contract. He was hoping to get that done either today or tomorrow. As far as Gracie is concerned, signing the contract appears to be a formality.

St-Pierre's manager Rodolphe Beaulieu was not immediately available for a comment when reached by

White said last week in Seattle that while the UFC wanted to book St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva, the Canadian welterweight champion asked to fight Diaz first.

"Georges St-Pierre has been a phenomenal champion, just a great guy to deal with for us," White said last week prior to UFC on FOX 5. "He doesn't ask for things. So if he wants to fight Nick Diaz, and Nick Diaz wants to fight him, then that's probably the fight we'll make.

"Georges has been off for a year. (Silva is) a tough fight for him to come back to. He asked personally for the (Diaz) fight."

St-Pierre (23-2) returned to action after almost two years away from the sport due to knee surgery last month in Montreal when he defeated Carlos Condit via unanimous decision to unify the UFC welterweight title.

Diaz (28-6, 1 NC) hasn't fought since February when he lost a unanimous decision to Condit. Following the fight, Diaz was suspended for a year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for testing positive for marijuana metabolites. His suspension expires on Feb. 4, 2013.

White also announced Wednesday that Rory MacDonald vs. Carlos Condit 2 will take place on the same card in Montreal, which is expected to be UFC 158. "

Frenchy by domination.

So is MacDonald going to call St. Pierre out if he wins against Condit¿ ...and would that make St. Pierre leave the devision and finally accept a fight against Silva¿

A picture of Nick Diaz with a smile on his face. Rarer than Unicorn boners.

Meanwhile in the UK, we'll have a John Hatahway main event to look forwards to in the near future...

I hope injuries don't mess up this card, Diaz vs St Pierre and MacDonald vs Condit in Montreal, sounds awesome.

Glad this fght got booked so fast. I always hate all the stalling that comes after a fight. GSP by domination. Hell, the ref might even stop the fight in favor of him.

Sweet. I am going to take that night off just so I can watch Diaz get utterly manhandled by George. One of my most disliked fighters against one of my favorites.

I guess losing is a prerequisite for getting a title shot these days. Should I even take the titles seriously anymore? Dana obviously doesn't. Not even sure why I'm complaining. Nick probably won't even show up at the press conferences like last time and lose his shot again.
