The Las Vegas Athletic Commission has approved the UFC's October 29th date request to host UFC 137 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV so you can officially mark the date in on your calendar.
Georges St. Pierre will look to continue his reign atop the UFC's welterweight division when he defends the UFC Welterweight Title against Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz. Diaz title will not be on the line and he will instead vacate the strap to challenge for the UFC belt.
Diaz, who returns to the UFC for the first time since 2006, will be allowed to return to Strikeforce if he is unable to take the title away from St. Pierre, who is riding a nine fight win streak heading into the fight.
The event will air live on Pay-Per-View and will also feature preliminary fights on Facebook and possibly Spike TV.
No other bouts are rumored for the card but they can be expected to begin rolling in shortly.
