UFC Welterweight Rick Story

On Tuesday afternoon, a welterweight affair between Rick Story (Pictured) and Sean Pierson was added to the “UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz” lineup. The event takes place March 16th inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Story’s once-promising career has hit a bit of a tailspin. After rattling off six straight wins in the big leagues, capped off by a lopsided W over former top contender Thiago Alves at UFC 130, “The Horror” has since dropped three of his last four.

The 28-year-old was most recently submitted by Demian Maia at UFC 153.

Pierson rallied from a two-fight skid by taking his last pair of bouts. The 36-year-old posted a unanimous decision win over Lance Benoist at UFC 152.

The 170-pound affair will appear in the card’s prelims.

Here are the athletes expected to perform up north:

Yves Jabouin vs. Johnny Eduardo

Daron Cruickshank vs. John Makdessi

Sean Pierson vs. Rick Story

Jordan Mein vs. Dan Miller

Patrick Cote vs. Bobby Voelker

Chris Camozzi vs. Nick Ring

Jake Ellenberger vs. Johny Hendricks

Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald

Nick Diaz vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)
