Georges St-Pierre will attempt to defend his UFC welterweight title once again at UFC 158. However, there is a different feeling heading into this fight, compared to St-Pierre's previous title defenses.
Scheduled to take on archenemy Nick Diaz, St-Pierre's responses to media questions have been less robotic than usual and more passionate. On the pre-fight media call, St-Pierre lost his temper more than ever before, calling Diaz an uneducated fool.
Many feel Diaz was undeserving of this title shot, as he's been out of action for over a year and is coming off a loss to Carlos Condit, whom St-Pierre just defeated.
However, the welterweight champion wanted to settle his feud with Diaz once and for all, and the UFC granted its titleholder his request.
One fighter disappointed with the UFC's decision was Johny Hendricks, who has been on a tear and is widely regarded as the greatest threat to St-Pierre's belt. Hendricks will fight Condit in UFC 158's co-main event and would likely get his shot at the belt with a win.
As this fight card packed with big welterweight matchups approaches, let's take a look at the odds and likely winners for all the main-card bouts.
