Georges St. Pierre
"I know (Nick Diaz) says that at one point I didn't want to fight him, but the truth is that I am not a coward. I never ducked nobody, I always fought whoever the UFC put in front of me. This fight has a lot of pride involved with it. A lot of things have been said, so I always put everything I've got into it and I'm ready to go... It's one thing losing to a guy that is humble, but a guy that is disrespecting you a little bit is very hard... Yes, (I feel disrespected) maybe a little bit, because I never ducked nobody. I'm ready to fight whoever the UFC puts in front of me. So, I'm ready to go... It's a good match-up for me, I think Diaz is going to bring it to me. It's going to be a good fight - standing up, on the floor, he's very good everywhere. I'm not a coward, like I said, I want to fight the best guy."
