Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre of Montreal meets Nick Diaz in the UFC 158 main event at the Bell Centre.

Other Canadians on the card are Rory (Ares) MacDonald, Nick (The Promise) Ring, Patrick (The Predator) Cote, Jordan (Young Gun) Mein, Sean (The Punisher) Pierson, John (The Bull) Makdessi, Antonio (Pato) Carvalho, Mitch Gagnon and Yves (Tiger) Jabouin.
