Another pair of welterweights have been added to UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz, as Sean Pierson takes on Rick Story. The card goes down March 16 from Montreal’s Bell Centre.
The Pierson-Story bout is likely headed for the prelims of an event that boasts several welterweight scraps. The main event features UFC 170-pound champion Georges St-Pierre defending his title against Nick Diaz.
Pierson (13-6) has gone 3-2 since joining the UFC. He will be competing for the fourth time in his native country of Canada, and is coming off a pair of victories.
Story (14-6) has gone just 1-3 in his last four after a six-fight win streak had him on the cusp of title contention. He does own wins over Johny Hendricks and Thiago Alves, having gone 7-4 inside the Octagon.
