Nick Diaz: GSP's training methods make him prone to injuriesPosted on January 10, 2012, 06:42 PM by Anton Gurevich
Nick Diaz shared his thoughts about George St. Pierre's training methods, stating that the French-Canadian's training methods are too extreme. According to Diaz, St. Pierre's experimental workouts is what makes him prone to injuries, and are the main reason the UFC Welterweight division now has to crown an interim champion. Once again, Diaz bought his MMA record as an example, claiming that he has more fights than anyone in the UFC Welterweight division.

"I don’t think so. I think he’s hurt. I think he might’ve hurt himself. He shouldn’t have done that. If it hurts, don’t do it. I had to go through a lot of fights like that. You know, there were things I couldn’t do, and I couldn’t come in at 100 percent. So basically, heal and worry about your weight cause that’s all you’re gonna be able to do is make the weight and go out there and fight. Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some, and sometimes you can’t be at 100 percent though. But, no, you know, he hurt himself, and you know, the type of exercises he does too, your injury prone. You’re higher likely to hurt yourself doing explosive workout exercises. I have different type of workouts. I’m a different type of athlete, and I think that we get hurt less and we fight more. That’s why I have more fights. I have twice as many fights as most of these guys out here."
