Georges St-Pierre Vs. Nick Diaz Nearly Complete For UFC 158 In March

A third attempt at putting UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz inside the Octagon together is nearly complete, as MMAFighting.com confirmed with UFC president Dana White that the two are being scheduled for UFC 158.

The card takes place in March from Montreal. Two previous encounters between the fighters were cancelled; first, due to a failure to show for press conferences by Diaz, followed by St-Pierre’s knee injury.

Cesar Gracie, the trainer and manager for Diaz, confirmed a contract has been received for the fight, but that Diaz has not signed it yet.

St-Pierre requested the Diaz match next after making his return and unifying the UFC welterweight titles with a win over Carlos Condit. Diaz is currently serving a suspension that ends in February.
