UFC will hold their kick-off press conference for UFC 158 today at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has posted an impressive 10-fight win streak during his reign atop the 170-pound division. On Saturday, March 16, he will look to extend that streak by one more as he steps back into the Octagon in his hometown to face former STRIKEFORCE champion Nick Diaz at Montreal’s Bell Centre. On the heels of unifying the welterweight title in November 2012 after an 18-month absence due to injury, St-Pierre (23-2) requested the fight against his fiery rival Diaz (27-8-1, fighting out of Stockton, California), telling UFC President Dana White it was “unfinished business.” Diaz agreed.
Expected to be in attendance are UFC’s director of operations for Canada, Australia and New Zealand Tom Wright, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz.
The press conference is expected to begin at 7am PT/10am ET and you can catch the action on MMASucka.com.
