Thought this would be a good change of topic after all the repetitive comments about 125.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will headline UFC 129, the UFC's debut in Toronto.
UFC president Dana White confirmed to The Canadian Press that the 29-year-old from Montreal will defend his 170-pound title against Jake Shields at the Rogers Centre on April 30.
St-Pierre (21-2) last fought at UFC 123 in Montreal on Dec. 11, when he won a unanimous decision over Josh Koscheck.
Shields (26-4-1) is coming off a split decision win over Martin (The Hitman) Kampmann at UFC 121 on Oct. 23.
The UFC had been looking at having heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez meet Brazilian banger Junior Dos Santos in Toronto but Velasquez has been sidelined by a torn rotator cuff.
While White confirmed GSP-Shields, bout agreements have yet to be signed, another source said. But that appears the next step.
Man wonder what the co-headliner will be. Gonna be huge!
