On Tuesday afternoon, a welterweight affair between Rick Story (Pictured) and Sean Pierson was added to the “UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz” lineup. The event takes place March 16th inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. Story’s once-promising career has hit a bit of a tailspin. After rattling off six straight wins in the big leagues, capped off by a lopsided W over former top contender Thiago Alves at UFC 130, “The Horror” has since dropped three of his last four. The 28-year-old was most recently submitted by Demian Maia at UFC 153. Pierson rallied from a two-fight skid by taking his last pair of bouts. The 36-year-old posted a unanimous decision win over Lance Benoist at UFC 152. The 170-pound affair will appear in the prelims. Here are the athletes expected to perform up north: Yves Jabouin vs. Johnny Eduardo Daron Cruickshank vs. John Makdessi Sean Pierson vs. Rick Story Jordan Mein vs. Dan Miller Patrick Cote vs. Bobby Voelker Chris Camozzi vs. Nick Ring Jake Ellenberger vs. Johny Hendricks Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald Nick Diaz vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)
