When Mike Dolce joined BJPENN.COM Radio this past Wednesday, March 13, he spoke at length regarding many topics the MMA world have been buzzing about.

Fortunes changed for five at UFC 158
A lot was made on Saturday night of the ending in the ring of the Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz fight. After a grueling 25-minute fight, a victorious St-Pierre asked his hometown crowd at the Bell Centre in Montreal to cheer the man they paid $3.7 million to see get smashed into oblivion. "(He did) a great job of promoting the fight," said St-Pierre. "He's a good guy. Please give him hands (applause)." To a crowd where their champion can do almost no wrong, that was met with resounding boos. Fans at home had similar reactions. They had paid somewhere in the range of $35 million or more, based on commercials that led them to believe Diaz was a brooding, disrespectful outlaw who was finally going to get what was coming to him by one of the most talented fighters the sport will ever see. Instead, they were left in some cases with frustrations and mixed feelings...

At least, that's what appears to be happening. Late on Sunday night, Diaz tweeted a picture of himself sitting on the sidewalk with police cruisers in the background.

Nick Diaz steals the spotlight
St-Pierre dominated in the Octagon, easily winning all five rounds on all three judges' cards. But then Diaz showed up in the late stages of the news conference and once again stole the show. Among the nuggets he dropped: • He'd like a rematch, after losing 50-45 on all three cards and mounting next-to-no offense. • He believes St-Pierre has little power and "hits like a girl." • He wants to retire. Georges St.Pierre's hand is raised after a win over Nick Diaz. (USA Today Sports) • He thinks he matches up well with pound-for-pound champion Anderson Silva. • And, most amazing of all, he said he hasn't paid taxes ever in his life.

After UFC 158 loss, Nick Diaz says hasn't paid taxes, might 'just be a kid'
Dana White has said all week that he knew exactly what he was getting into by doing business with Nick Diaz. But even some of Saturday must have taken him a little by surprise. After Diaz (26-9 MMA, 7-6 UFC) dropped a unanimous decision to Georges St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) in the main event of UFC 158, he basically (again) announced his retirement in the octagon. At the post-event news conference at Montreal's Bell Centre, White said Diaz told him he wasn't going to attend. But 35 minutes into the proceedings, Diaz strolled onto the dais, ready to greet the media...

UFC 158 Weigh In Results
After all other fighters made weight, Diaz tipped the scale at 169 pounds, and St-Pierre clocked in at 170 pounds. However, for their customary faceoff, the main eventers both got in a fighter's stance, quickly got their arms tangled (largely due to Diaz), and were instantly separated by UFC President Dana White before the bad blood spilled over a day early. The fighters traded barbs at Thursday's press conference after weeks of trash talk in the media. With today's brief scuffle quickly extinguished, though, the attention now turns to Saturday's big event. MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET) Champ Georges St-Pierre (170) vs. Nick Diaz (169) - for welterweight title Carlos Condit (169) vs. Johny Hendricks (171) Jake Ellenberger (170) vs. Nate Marquardt (171) Chris Camozzi (185) vs. Nick Ring (183) Colin Fletcher (155) vs. Mike Ricci (156) PRELIMINARY CARD (FX, 8 p.m. ET) Patrick Cote (169) vs. Bobby Voelker (169) Antonio Carvalho (145) vs. Darren Elkins (145) Jordan Mein (170) vs. Dan Miller (171) Daron Cruickshank (155) vs. John Makdessi (155) PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 6:35 p.m. ET) Quinn Mulhern (168) vs. Rick Story (169) TJ Dillashaw (135) vs. Issei Tamura (135) Reuben Duran (135) vs. George Roop (135)

Dominick Cruz set to meet with the UFC to talk about the Bantamweight title and injury
Dana White: “There’s a lot of things we need to talk about with him. He is our champ, he is our guy, he needs time or whatever but we are getting to the point now where we really need to make a decision. This poor kid, I’ve never seen anybody with more bad luck than Cruz. And for him, coming back into this division – you know the way this sport is, to be have been off for two years is you know, I don’t think we have ever had anyone be off as long as he has. We’ve given him a lot of time, I like the kid and I have so much respect for him.”

Freddie Roach Trains ‘Improperly Taught’ Shogun Rua to Punch
Renowned boxing trainer Freddie Roach was brought onboard Mauricio Rua’s training camp for UFC 161 to help Rua with his striking. Rua is known for his muay-thai game but according to Roach, when it comes to technical punches, Rua wasn’t properly taught how to throw them. Roach spoke to GracieMag on his work with Rua: “I was studying a lot of tape on him to get an idea of how he fights”; “He didn’t know how to transfer his weight too well, and he wasn’t a very big puncher at first,” Roach stated “Once we got him pivoting and punching off the right foot, keeping his boxing stance, he punched really, really hard when he did it correctly.” This new power could be a turning point in the 31-year old’s career especially after someone like Roach claims that before his work with Rua: “I don’t think he was ever taught how to do it correctly.” This, along with a new cardiovascular program that Roach plans to introduce to Rua, could transform the former light-heavyweight champion into a whole new fighter.

Diaz says St. Pierre is on 'plenty of steroids', UFC won't do anything
Nick Diaz kept up his verbal attack on UFC 158 opponent Georges St. Pierre today, saying that he's on steroids today on a radio show. He made hints at it at today's press conference, but Nick Diaz just came out and said it afterwards on a radio show. On The Fan 590, a Sportsnet radio station, Diaz laid his steroid allegations towards UFC 158 opponent Georges St. Pierre out there for hosts Tim Micallef and Sid Seixeiro. Here's what they had to say in regards to Nick's statement: "I believe that he's is on plenty of steroids, and I don't think they test around here either. I doubt I'll be tested as well. I don't care what they say to the fans or the media, I don't think we'll be tested. And if so, he's probably got a bottle of piss in his pocket."
