UFC CENTRAL: Countdown to UFC 158

January 27, 2013, 4:03 PM

The countdown to UFC 158 in Montreal has begun as Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz face the media at the Bell Centre. We look back at their first stare down and why Diaz may have surprised many in attendance with his behaviour. Is the Stockton native really a “bad boy” or just misunderstood?

We also speak with UFC president Dana White who sets the record straight on a potential super fight between GSP and Anderson Silva. Could the fight actually be closer to happening than ever before?

We head to Chicago for a complete recap of UFC on Sportsnet: Johnson vs. Dodson, a fight card that saw several fighters shoot up the rankings, while others took big steps backwards. Was it really the last time Quinton (Rampage) Jackson would step foot in the octagon?

UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes was in attendance just days after he officially announced his retirement. We hear from the former champ and look at what’s next for his career.

A stacked card is set for this Saturday in Las Vegas, as UFC 156 features a main event between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. We breakdown the entire line-up and are joined by Frank Trigg to find out who should have their hands raised at the Mandalay Bay.

Don’t forget that you can catch two hours of live prelim action from UFC 156, this Saturday starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific.
