UFC officials in Canada have announced yet another welterweight fight for the UFC’s return trip to Montreal, as Sean Pierson and Rick Story will square off at UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz.
Pierson spent most of 2012 out of the cage, but closed out the year with two unanimous decision wins. Comparably, Story finds himself painted into a corner as he has gone 1-3 in his last four fight meaning he will likely need to get a win over Pierson to guarantee himself another bout in the Octagon.
