His wins over Matt Serra, Josh Koscheck, and Carlos Condit in front of a sold out Bell Centre crowd after Bell Centre crowd gave fans something to go home happy about each and every time. Stockton's Nick Diaz has been given the unique chance to make history and send Montreal home with a bad taste in their collective mouths as they head for the gates on this night. Also, one man will emerge from two very important fights in the 170 pound division as the new #1 contender for the winner of St. Pierre vs. Diaz. Late replacement Nate Marquardt will fill in for injured Rory MacDonald to take on University of Nebraska-Omaha "Juggernaut" Jake Ellenberger. While the co-main event tilt between Johny "The Bearded Assassin" Hendricks and Carlos "NBK" Condit is being thought of as a title eliminator to some, should they fail to deliver, an impressive showing from either Marquardt or Ellenberger could make a case for the suits to flip the script.
