There has been a late addition to the UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz scheduled for the Bell Centre in Montreal, as George Roop will face Reuben Duran in a featherweight fight. The bout will kick off the Facebook portion of the card, and its a very important for both fighters.
Roop and Duran are coming off of losses, so one could argue they both need this win to stay employed with the UFC considering yesterday’s news that sixteen fighters, including perennial top ten welterweight Jon Fitch, were released by the promotion.
UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz is scheduled for March 16 with Roop-Duran serving as the thirteenth fight on the card.
