UFC 158: Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz Pre-Fight Press Conference Live Video

Sean SmithAnalyst IJanuary 23, 2013

Nick Diaz hasn't had to sit in front of a microphone in nearly 12 months. On Wednesday, the fighter who once had a title shot taken away from him for failing to appear at a UFC 137 media event will have to take his seat next to welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre for a UFC 158 pre-fight press conference.

Despite losing his most recent fight against Carlos Condit, Diaz has been named the top contender in the 170-pound division, which means his long-awaited grudge match with St-Pierre will take place inside the Octagon in March.

In case Diaz decides not to show for another media obligation, the UFC has filled the UFC 158 fight card with potential replacements.

In total, six welterweight fights are expected to be featured at the event. Most notably, Johny Hendricks will attempt to finally earn a title shot by beating Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald will try to avenge his only loss to Condit.

To promote UFC 158, which will be held at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, a pre-fight press conference will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET. Event headliners St-Pierre and Diaz will likely join UFC president Dana White for the presser.

Video of the press conference will be streamed live on the above video player. After the presser, stay tuned to Bleacher Report MMA for all the latest on UFC 158 and the rest of your MMA needs.
