UFC 158 in Tweets: Pros react to Nick Diaz vs. Georges St-Pierre, Johny Hendricks vs. Carlos Condit, more

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

In the end, all the hype in the world couldn't help Nick Diaz. UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre dominated UFC 158's main event from pillar to post, landing nine of his 16 takedown attempts, outstriking Diaz 210 to 80 (according to Fightmetric), and claiming all five rounds on the judges' scorecards to retain his title for the eighth consecutive time. The win was St-Pierre's 18th in the UFC, a mark that ties him with his former rival, Matt Hughes, as the most in the promotion's history.

Up next for the Canadian will be Johny Hendricks, the bearded four-time All-American who solidified his status as No. 1 contender with a thrilling, ‘Fight of the Year' candidate victory over Carlos Condit in UFC 158's co-main event. Add in an explosive first-round knockout courtesy of fellow top-10 welterweight Jake Ellenberger, and there was plenty to talk about on Saturday night.
