St-Pierre manhandles Diaz at UFC 158-A A +A
Sunday, March 17, 2013
MONTREAL -- UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre manhandled Nick Diaz for five rounds en route to a lopsided unanimous decision at UFC 158 on Saturday night.
St-Pierre (24-2) won 50-45 on all three judges' cards.
Diaz (27-8-0 with one no contest) said he was flat after a 13-month layoff, but thanked St-Pierre "for giving him the credit I think I deserve."
As expected, St-Pierre used his wrestling to control the chirpy challenger, rag-dolling him at times and bullying him on the ground.
But he also used his jab and kicks to pick apart the challenger on his feet.
A calm, calculating St-Pierre won almost every battle during the fight without putting himself in harm's way. (AP)
