The bad news, the injury bug has taken a bite out of next Saturday’s “UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz” lineup. The good news, none of the card’s significant scraps are affected.
On Wednesday morning, the UFC announced an undisclosed injury has forced Yves Jabouin out of his bantamweight brawl with Johnny Eduardo. The preliminary bout was slotted to stream live on Facebook.
No word on whether the promotion will look to find a last-minute substitute to face Eduardo. However, it’s likely they’ll save him for another event with just 10 days remaining until showtime.

BEST OF MAXIM
Georges St-Pierre is seen as one of the more stoic figures in UFC, a stone-like facade he shed minutes into a conference call with reporters to promote next weekend's UFC 158.
"Let me tell you something, you uneducated fool," St-Pierre scolded his fiery opponent, Nick Diaz, during Thursday's call.
There's been plenty of speculation as to whether Diaz could...
No more Mr. Nice Guy. Typically overly polite UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre (pictured) has been forced to go to a “dark place,” and it’s all because of Nick Diaz.
Plenty was said during Thursday’s epic conference call – mostly by Diaz, so some of his tangents made sense, while other part of his rants were contradictory. After re-sifting through 45 minutes of...
One of the most anticipated welterweight title fights in recent memory takes place next Saturday as welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre takes on former Strikeforce 170lb champ Nick Diaz in what can only be considered a grudge match. The bad blood between these two world-class fighters is no secret and they would like nothing better than to prove to the world that they could...
While I’m happy to have a Saturday away from this site’s fiendishly loyal UFC fans, I’d really like it if next Saturday could hurry up and get here already so we can watch UFC 158. I could probably be a little more patient had Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz not had their telephone conference yesterday and had it not been one of the greatest conversations between two men who...
Here is a throwback picture of Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz as young kids. I feel like this fight isn’t getting the hype it deserves.

Nick Diaz To Save MMA
Here are some “highlights” from the conference call featuring Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz. St-Pierre: [On if he's seen the #GSPDarkPlace tweets] I have not seen it. I never tweet once in my life. I have people doing it for me. I’m not into social media at all. Diaz: I don’t know what he’s going [...]
Nick Diaz calls Georges St-Pierre “Crazy” for not accepting the fight against Anderson Silva. I kind of agree with Nick, WAR DIAZ.

Nick Diaz Cartoon
Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz had an intense media call leading up to their UFC 158 fight. Read about what was said on the call.
Nick Diaz vs. Georges St. Pierre – the fight we’ve been clamoring for since BJ Penn was coming off of a win (God, that was so long ago). Originally slated to go down at UFC 137 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas over Halloween weekend of 2011, one of the strangest switcheroos in recent memory was pulled and we were left with a sidelined and injured GSP out of the fight and a media...

Nick Diaz thinks Georges St. Pierre is crazy. Why not fight Anderson Silva when you've had every opportunity. This is what Diaz believes separates him from Georges. Nick has been doing this since he was a kid, and he's calling out the top guys. How did Georges become a top guy though? Well, he must've beat the top guys, right? St. Pierre has faced every...
