UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre

UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields takes place on Saturday night from the sold-out Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. A UFC-record crowd of 55,000 will witness two UFC Championship bouts, headlined by Georges St-Pierre, who will defend his UFC Welterweight Championship against Jake Shields, who brings a 15-fight win streak into the bout.

In addition, UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo will make his first title defense since the UFC absorbed the WEC, taking on Canada's own Mark Hominick.

The card will also see the retirement bout of UFC Hall of Famer Randy "The Natural" Couture. The five-time UFC Champion is looking to retire on his own terms and has said that his matchup with former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida will be the last of his decorated career.

Keep an eye on this space from now until Saturday night for thoughts, predictions and notes from the upcoming card.
