Found December 13, 2012 on hov-mma:

It's a wonderful life for Tristar teammates Georges St. Pierre and Rory MacDonald. Not only do they get to call out their next opponents, (both whom are coming off losses nonetheless) they also get to fight them in their home province of Quebec. 

UFC President Dana White has offered contracts to both Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, and Stockton Southpaw Nick Diaz to headline the promotions first 2013 visit to Canada. While a lot could go wrong before March 16th, 2013, as it stands today - this is the UFC 158 headliner. 

Rory MacDonald visited mmajunkie radio yesterday to confirm that he will be given the opportunity to rematch Carlos Condit inside of Montreal's Bell Centre live on pay-per-view. This bout will likely serve as the co-main event of the evening. You can revisit Condit and MacDonald's UFC 115 Fight of the Night performance right here, if you're into that sort of thing.
