Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its traditional pre-fight press conference earlier today (Jan. 23, 2013) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to promote the upcoming UFC 158: "St. Pierre vs. Diaz" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is scheduled to take place at the same location on March 16, 2013.

Nick Diaz returns to the Octagon following his one-year suspension for banned substances (marijuana metabolites) to battle Georges St. Pierre, who also returned from a lengthy vacation late last year after recovering from major knee surgery.
"Rush" went on to defeat Carlos Condit at UFC 154 -- the same "Natural Born Killer" who outpointed Diaz prior to the Stockton slugger's run-in with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). MMA math FTW! We'll see how it all plays out on fight night, which will be here before you know it.
