Are you ready for a USA vs Canada battle? It’s happening at UFC 58 most likely on March 4th from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. MMAWeekly.com has learned that the rumors of a USA vs Canada card at UFC 58 are in fact true, with a minor change to the card.
It looks as though it will be Joe Doerksen squaring off against Nathan Marquardt at UFC 58. There were a few combinations out there that involved Marquardt. There was talk that Ivan Salaverry would get a rematch or Marquardt could possibly face Jeremy Horn, but Doerksen will be the man squaring off against Marquardt. Many believe if Marquardt can get the win, that would set up a title shot for Marquardt.
Speaking of the 185lbs title, Rich Franklin will be the featured main event putting his title on the line going against David Loiseau for the 185lbs title. Georges St. Pierre will square off against BJ Penn continuing the Canada vs USA theme.
There is talk of Jonathan Goulet on this card facing Diego Sanchez, but Duane “Bang” Ludwig has something to say about that, as Ludwig squares off against Goulet on Monday’s Spike TV show.
Some other names that are rumored to be on the card are Mike Swick (depends on his health), Sam Stout vs Kenny Florian, and Seth Petruzelli vs. Rob MacDonald
