On Saturday, March 16, the UFC will hold UFC 158 from the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Saturday’s main card will air live on pay-per-view starting at 10 p.m. ET. The preliminary card will be split between an 8 p.m. ET FX broadcast and a YouTube stream beginning at 6:35 p.m. ET.

The event will feature UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre defending his title against former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz.

In the co-main event, former interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit will battle heavy-handed wrestling stalwart Johny Hendricks. Condit faced St-Pierre at UFC 154 in November, falling short in his title conquest by unanimous decision.

Condit was originally expected to rematch Canadian Rory MacDonald at the event. The pair faced off at UFC 115 in 2010, with Condit scoring a come-from-behind TKO win in the third round. However, an injury to MacDonald forced him off the card.

Now Condit will look to get back on track against Hendricks and derail his ascension up the 170-pound ladder.

A pre-fight video interview with the New Mexico fighter appears below.
