Georges St. Pierre
"I showed up in Toronto and I learned that (Nick Diaz) was not coming. I was a little bit p----d off because its not fair, I derailed from my training camp and routine. So I said, 'Alright, I don't really care about the reason why he did not show up, maybe something bad happened to him.' I show up in Vegas and now not only does he not show up, but I learn that the fight is not going to happen and I am fighting Carlos Condit. So, I am a little bit taken off guard. I don't know what to say, it doesn't make sense to me because I've worked my whole life to be world Champion - for that opportunity...I know a little bit about Carlos, but he gets better every fight. He's got a big diversity of attacks, so this fight is much more dangerous than Nick Diaz. (Condit is dangerous) standing up and on the ground. He's very well rounded, an opportunist. He's like a sniper. They say a 'killer' on the promotional video and that's what he is."
