UFC 137 is official.
UFC 137 “St. Pierre vs. Diaz” is scheduled to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, Oct. 29, and will air live on pay-per-view at 9pm ET/6pm PT. The card will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between UFC champion Georges St. Pierre and Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz.
“This is the fight the world wants to see,” UFC President Dana White said. “GSP has absolutely dominated everyone in his path over the last five years and he’s on his way to becoming the greatest welterweight of all-time. Diaz has been on a tear himself and a lot of people think he’s the guy to end GSP’s reign. On Oct. 29, we’re going to see a welterweight title superfight.”
Other bouts announced for the card include BJ Penn vs. Carlos Condit, Cheick Kongo vs. Matt Mitrione, Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson and Hatsu Hioki vs. George Roop.
