Nick Diaz: GSP doesn't want to fight me in the street or in a cagePosted on September 14, 2011, 06:15 PM by Joey Santosus
"I didn't know there was a press conference. I thought I was going to do some sort of PR video shoot. I didn't know exactly what I was doing, and they say I wasn't able to deal with it all. I guess I wasn't. I was too busy training to whip George St-Pierre's ass, which I thought was more important...I really don't appreciate this mother [expletive] (Georges St. Pierre) sitting there at that press conference and laughing at me. That's some real bitch [expletive]. He's sitting there laughing like it's funny or something. If I saw Georges on the street and called him a bitch, I bet you he wouldn't do [expletive]. I bet you if I walked up and gave him a slap, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't do [expletive]. But you can't do that to me. That's not how it works for me. That's something to fight about.
The truth is Georges doesn't want to fight me in the street or in a cage. He knows who I am, and he knows where I came from. I don't have the commitment? I'm younger than him, I have more wins in my career than he does, and I've worked harder to get where I am. He knows the truth, and he didn't say anything and won't say anything because he doesn't want to get his ass whipped by me the same way he got his ass whipped by Jake – the night we went to the press conference and Georges went to the hospital." - For more from Nick Diaz, visit MMAJunkie.com
After failing to appear for multiple media commitments ahead of his UFC 137 title clash against Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz found himself abruptly relocated to the co-main event slot, where he'll now face "The Prodigy" BJ Penn. While "The Stockton Bad Boy" admits that he may have been "too busy training to whoop GSP's a--" to make it to the press conference, he also faults the Canadian himself for not contesting his change in opponents.
Instead, St. Pierre is now set to square off with Jackson's MMA product Carlos Condit. However, should the champ emerge victorious and Diaz make the best of his "penalty" fight against Penn, the two could find their paths crossing again sooner rather than later. But, what do you think LowKick'ers? Is St. Pierre ducking Nick Diaz? And with a victory over "The Prodigy" does Diaz deserve another shot at the Welterweight strap?
