Georges St-Pierre vs Nick Diaz, Scheduled for UFC 137
Finally! The bout between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz is now a done deal for UFC 137.
UFC President, Dana White, announced last Wednesday that Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz will clash in the main event of UFC 137. However, it is unknown what UFC offered to Showtime – Strikeforce’s broadcast partner – in order to bring Nick Diaz to the Octagon. The UFC president also declines to detail on what lies ahead for the Strikeforce welterweight title, which its current champion might vacate once Nick Diaz steps in the Octagon.
In relation to this, Nick Diaz’s manager – Cesar Gracie – informed the press that the Georges St-Pierre bout is part of the Strikeforce welterweight champ’s new contract. The reformed agreement allows Nick Diaz to compete in both Strikeforce and UFC. The UFC 137 will take place on October 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.View Article Source »
