Who will Georges St-Pierre fight next?
The number one contender in the Welterweight division is without a doubt Johny Hendricks; the possibility of a super-fight with Anderson Silva is up in the air and Nick Diaz’s name has been in the mix when he returns from his suspension.
At today’s UFC on FOX 5 pre-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White said that St-Pierre has requested Diaz in his next fight.
“Georges St. Pierre went on vacation, but when he came back we were talking about Anderson Silva. He said, ‘I want Nick Diaz. Me and Nick Diaz have unfinished business. We were supposed to fight. That’s the fight that I want.’ So, Georges St-Pierre has been a phenomenal champion, just a great guy to deal with for us. 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.”

When UFC president Dana White decided to dabble in women’s...

An emotional Dominick Cruz (Pictured) appeared on this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight to address his second knee operation in six months. While many question whether “The Dominator” will ever be the same following his extended hiatus, Cruz will use the experience and successes of Georges St-Pierre’s ACL surgery as a blueprint for his return to glory.
Johny Hendricks is pissed. After what was billed to be a title elimination fight at UFC 154, Johny Hendricks fully expected a title shot after knocking out Martin Kampmann with ease. But, anything is possible in MMA, and now coming off a loss and a 1-year suspension, Nick Diaz is apparently getting a shot a [...]
The wait is over.
About three weeks ago UFC president Dana White announced the organization’s first female signing: former Olympic medalist in judo and Strikeforce member Ronda Rousey. The question then became when and who would be her first bout.
Well, wonder no longer, as the 25-year-old’s first fight with UFC is now officially scheduled for February 23 at Anaheim, California’s...

Barao (29-1) was originally wanting...
