Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is all but set for the UFC’s return to Montreal.

According to UFC president Dana White, the promotion has offered both GSP and Diaz a fight on March 16 in Montreal for the UFC welterweight title, however, the “deal isn’t done” yet, White told MMAFighting.com Wednesday.

Diaz’s manager Cesar Gracie confirmed the fight has been offered to Diaz, however, he said Diaz has yet to sign the contract. He was hoping to get that done either today or tomorrow. As far as Gracie is concerned, signing the contract appears to be a formality.

St-Pierre’s manager Rodolphe Beaulieu was not immediately available for a comment when reached by MMAFighting.com.
