UFC 158 is in the books, and after five rounds of action, Georges St-Pierre retained his title in front of his home crowd. 

St-Pierre out-wrestled Nick Diaz to earn a unanimous decision victory. 

Twitter was buzzing about this fight, but St-Pierre's win may actually be overshadowed by Diaz's alleged retirement and the great show that Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks put on. 

Here are some of Twitter's reactions to St-Pierre's win:

GSP does it again! Eight times, not bad!

MMA legend Bas Rutten shared his thoughts on St-Pierre's eighth straight title defense. 

Wrestling wins another one!! #saveolympicwrestling

Dan Henderson (@danhendo) March 17, 2013

Light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson praised St-Pierre's wrestling and made another plea for Olympic wrestling. 

When GSP gets the TD it's like watching a lifetime movie. You know how it's going to play out, but you hope she can leave him somehow.

Lightweight vet Yves Edwards also shared his thoughts on GSP's wrestling. 

After tonight I am 100% sure I could beat GSP @dukeroufus

Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren believes he has what it takes to defeat St-Pierre after watching the fight. 

You're going to see a lot of this, but i'm predicting that Johny Hendricks will beat GSP and take that welterweight title.

— Jeremy Botter (@jeremybotter) March 17, 2013

Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter already has his prediction in for St-Pierre vs. Hendricks. 

Although St-Pierre did not show us anything new, he is still the champ and has a new challenge waiting for him in Johny Hendricks.
