UFC President Dana White spent over an hour answering questions in a media scrum today following the UFC 158 pre-fight press conference in Montreal. White discussed such topics as Nick Diaz missing the open workout and what will happen if he wins the title, Nick’s volatile personality, his continuous use of marijuana, Georges St-Pierre’s aggravation doing media, Dana’s views on TRT, his plans to lobby against it, the UFC’s past issues with Nate Marquardt, ticket sales and much much more.
ESPN was on scene in Montreal today for the UFC 158 pre-fight press conference and spoke with UFC President Dana White about the main event between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, and what it has been like having to deal with Diaz. ESPN also interviewed GSP and Diaz, as well as UFC 158 co-headliners Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks, and Nate Marquardt and Jake Ellenberger as well.
Nick Diaz already missed the UFC 158 open workouts. But will he make it to today’s UFC 158 pre-fight press conference? Tune in to find out when the live stream begins at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT). Diaz’s main event opponent UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, along with co-headliners Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit, as well as Nate Marquardt and Jake Ellenberger are also scheduled for today’s presser.
Countdown to UFC 158 takes a look at six of the top welterweights in the world as they prepare to converge on Montreal, Quebec, Canada this Saturday night, March 16. Georges St-Pierre puts his UFC welterweight title on the line against Stockton bad boy Nick Diaz in a bad blood match no one wants to miss. Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit go at it in the co-main event to flesh out the next contender, and Jake Ellenberger and Nate Marquardt will also go to war as they make their climb toward the top of the division.
All good things must come to an end — or so the saying goes. For his sake, Anderson Silva better hope Georges St-Pierre is better at fighting than he is at predicting fights, because the UFC welterweight champ doesn’t see a bright ending for “The Spider’s” upcoming bout with No. 1 185-pound contender, Chris Weidman.
Heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson and UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey were on Good Day LA Friday morning. Rousey has been loosely compared to Tyson in the sense that he carried about him this aura of invincibility and she has put a stop to every one of her opponents in the first round.
