Well the big fight between two great UFC Welterweights is on. George St.Pierre got his Christmas wish you might say. He is gonna fight Nick Diaz for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 158 on March 16th. It will take place in Montreal Quebec Canada. George has wanted this fight for about a whole year. George has made it clear that he does not like Nick Diaz at all. As a fighter or as a person. He once made a now famous quote last year saying that " he ( Nick Diaz ) is the most disrespectful human being I have ever met and I am going to give the worst beating on him. Ever." Now this is a fight that has been at least one year in the making. These two where set to face off last year in October at UFC 137. But George had to pull out with a knee injury. Nick instead fought and defeated BJ Penn. The two were again set to face off last February at UFC 143 but St.Pierre had to pull out again after discovering that the " Knee injury " was a torn ACL. Nick instead fought and lost to Carlos Condit. So hopefully the fight will finally happen. Dana White, GSP, us UFC fans, and Nick Diaz can only hope that 3rd time is the charm if you know what I mean. Nick will already be back from his one year suspension for testing positive for Marijuana after his fight with Condit. He is eligible to return to MMA action by February of 2013. This fight was confirmed last Sunday by UFC President Dana White. Now I know a lot of fans will say that Johnny Hendricks should be next in line after his quick first round K.O. win over Martin Kampmann a month ago. But this is such a big fright that Johnny boy will have to wait his turn. This is gonna be a great fight. I think there will be a lot of PPV buys and tickets will be sold out. I mean looks at the other fights. A rematch between Welterweights Carlos Condit and Rory Macdonald. Plus Johhny Hendricks will take on Jake Ellenberger. It's like an all Welterweight main card. Now it might be a bit too early to make a prediction for this fight but I am going to predict this fight anyway. I say GSP wins by Unanimous Decision. I think George is more determined. George hates Nick more than Nick hates George. This will be Nick's first fight in over a year so he might have some ring rust. But I think this will still be George's biggest challenge to date. I hope this fight happens and hope it will be exciting. Buy UFC 158 in March everyone. You know I will.
