13 Dec UFC returns to Montreal March 16th for UFC 158
The UFC will be returning to Montreal in 2013 on March 16th for UFC 158 at the Bell Centre.
With the event just 98-days away it is difficult to determine what the actual fight card may be, however two fights are rumored to take place on the card.
The rumored main event for the card is UFC Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre versus former STRIKEFORCE Welterweight champion Nick Diaz. UFC president Dana White has confirmed that contracts for the bout have been sent out, however it “isn’t done yet” White said, with signatures remaining outstanding. With his unanimous decision victory over Carlos Condit on November 17th at UFC 154, St-Pierre puts aside the “super fight” with Anderson Silva to settle “unfinished business” with Diaz.
Another rumored fight, which is set yet unofficial is the UFC 115 rematch between Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit. After a decisive victory over B.J. Penn on December 8th, 2012, MacDonald called out Condit. Condit who failed to capture the Welterweight title on Nov. 17th against Georges St-Pierre is he only fighter to defeat MacDonald, causing the only blemish on his record. MacDonald dominated Condit for two rounds, but with a relentless comeback, Condit was able to finish MacDonald with 7-seconds remaining in the round.
With these bouts rumored, it is only fair to assume that the UFC will stack UFC 158 with Canadian talent.
