According to a March 11 report from MMA Junkie, this weekend in Montreal will be all about Georges St-Pierre's long-awaited homecoming, as he is slated to fight Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 158.
St-Pierre, 31, hasn't fought in Montreal since last year, and he's been itching to get his hands on Diaz after the long three-month layoff between fights.
"This is the fight that everyone wants to see," St-Pierre said of his match against Diaz. "All the fans want to see it. It's a fight that he wants. It's a fight that I want, and I think it's going to make the best version of me come out for the fight."
St-Pierre and Diaz are set to duke it out on March 16 at UFC 158, live from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
"All fights are very, very important," St-Pierre said. "It's a very, very tough fight for me. But they're all very important.
"I believe everybody I fight has great things about them. They're the best in the world at what they do. I think the same thing here, but I don't care what Diaz is going to try to do to me. I care about I'm going to try to do to him. That's what's going to happen on March 16."
The way St-Pierre has been making it sound, he's not expecting a long feeling out process. He expects to get in and out within the first round.
"The perfect scenario would be 'GSP' victory via flying armbar 10 seconds into the fight," St-Pierre said with a laugh. "That would be awesome."
St-Pierre heads into the Diaz bout with a 23-2 record, while his opponent is 26-8.
