Georges St-Pierre didn't exactly give Nick Diaz the worst beating we've ever seen at UFC 158, but the welterweight champion did defend his title from his long-time rival and finally put the long-awaited matchup behind him.
With his victory, St-Pierre can now look forward to defending his belt against more deserving opponents, as Diaz was coming off of a loss and a year-long absence from competition. The win could also put the Canadian one step closer to a superfight with middleweight titleholer Anderson Silva.
Following his loss, Diaz hinted at retirement in the heat of the moment, though the former Strikeforce champion has already come back from a supposed withdrawal from MMA. So, his declaration shouldn't be taken so seriously in the immediate aftermath of a disappointing performance.
Let's take a look at the opponents who could be next for St-Pierre, Diaz and the rest of the UFC 158 competitors.
