TORONTO - Georges St-Pierre has got his wish — a date with Nick Diaz.
"Nick Diaz vs GSP is on!" Cesar Gracie, Diaz's head coach, tweeted Friday.
St-Pierre, the UFC welterweight champion, had asked to meet Diaz next, citing unfinished business. The two were slated to meet in October 2011 but the UFC yanked Diaz for failing to show up for a pair of news conferences.
UFC president Dana White said last week in Seattle that the fight would happen this time, presuming Diaz agreed.
The fight is expected to happen in Montreal in March.
