Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz Set For UFC 137 At Mandalay Bay In Las Vegas

UFC president Dana White just made a massive announcement via Twitter, current UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre will indeed take on Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz in the first champion vs. champion “super-fight” at UFC 137 From Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 29th, 2011.

Dana White, speaking via his Twitter account, said:

“U wanted it! U GOT IT!!! GSP vs DIAZ Oct 29th UFC 137 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.”

St. Pierre is coming off a string of decision wins that have failed to impress, defeating Thaigo Alves, Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck and most recently Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Diaz on the other hand has been finishing all his fights since 2007, defeating lesser opponents no doubt but still in impressive fashion. He was last seen in action in April defeating Paul “Semtex” Daley at his own game via first round TKO.
