UFC 158 is in the books, and after five rounds of action, Georges St-Pierre retained his title in front of his home crowd. 

St-Pierre out-wrestled Nick Diaz to earn a unanimous decision victory. 

Twitter was buzzing about this fight, but St-Pierre's win may actually be overshadowed by Diaz's alleged retirement and the great show that Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks put on. 

Here are some of Twitter's reactions to St-Pierre's win:

GSP does it again! Eight times, not bad!

Wrestling wins another one!! #saveolympicwrestling

Dan Henderson (@danhendo) March 17, 2013

Light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson praised St-Pierre's wrestling and made another plea for Olympic wrestling. 

When GSP gets the TD it's like watching a lifetime movie. You know how it's going to play out, but you hope she can leave him somehow.

— Yves Edwards (@thugjitsumaster) March 17, 2013

Lightweight vet Yves Edwards also shared his thoughts on GSP's wrestling. 

After tonight I am 100% sure I could beat GSP @dukeroufus

— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) March 17, 2013

Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren believes he has what it takes to defeat St-Pierre after watching the fight. 

You're going to see a lot of this, but i'm predicting that Johny Hendricks will beat GSP and take that welterweight title.

— Jeremy Botter (@jeremybotter) March 17, 2013

Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter already has his prediction in for St-Pierre vs. Hendricks. 

Although St-Pierre did not show us anything new, he is still the champ and has a new challenge waiting for him in Johny Hendricks.
