The greatest welterweight in mixed martial arts history, Georges St Pierre returned from a torn ACL last November and earned a unanimous decision over Carlos Condit at UFC 154. The win was his ninth successful title defense in a row, including victories over BJ Penn, Jon Fitch, and Jake Shields.

Thanks to his rabid fan base and Georges St Pierre’s general dislike for the man, Nick Diaz gets a rare title shot on the heels of a loss. Last time out, Diaz lost a unanimous decision to Carlos Condit at UFC 143. The loss snapped a eleven-fight win streak, dating back to May of 2008. After the Condit fight, Diaz tested positive to marijuana metabolites and received a year-long suspension.
