At UFC 158, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will defend his title against trash-talking rival, Nick Diaz. The bout will headline a welterweight-heavy card, featuring a slew of top fighters that could feasibly contest the victor of the night's main event in the near future.

Fresh off his loss to GSP, Carlos Condit returns to take on the surging Johny Hendricks, while Jake Ellenberger will welcome former UFC middleweight competitor Nate Marquardt back to the Octagon.

Beyond these 170-pound clashes, UFC 158 will play host to two additional main card fights, and a total of 12 matches on Facebook, FX and pay-per-view.

With a terrific main event and a superb supporting cast of secondary bouts, UFC looks to be a show no MMA fan will want to miss.
