Well fans, it looks like the merger between Strikeforce and the UFC will see it's first dividends coming this October.
Dana White confirmed via Twitter today that the much anticipated fight between UFC welterweight champion Georges "Rush" St. Pierre and Nick Diaz is official, and will take place at UFC 137 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
"U wanted it! U GOT IT!!! GSP vs DIAZ Oct 29th UFC 137 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas." White tweeted a little past 6pm EST.
But what does this mean for fight fans going forward? Well, if MMAWeekly's report is true, White would like to see more of this in the immediate future.
"As soon as possible," White said in the article.
While this appears to be the beginning of great crossover bouts and added stars to the UFC fray, only the upcoming months will prove whether or not the UFC can successfully and excitingly incorporate Strikeforce's big guns into the UFC.
Today though is a good day for the fans of MMA and the UFC.
