UFC Results: Nick Diaz defeats BJ Penn, accuses GSP of faking an injuryPosted on October 29, 2011, 11:28 PM by Anton Gurevich
Penn started the fight aggressively, connecting with a lot of striking combinations that started to paint a crimson mask on Nick Diaz's face. Penn also executed a takedown followed by a submission attempt, but Nick Diaz managed to defend well as the fight continued.
Second by second, Diaz took control of the fight, as BJ Penn started to get beat up. Diaz went full throttle in the middle of round 2, getting very close to finish BJ Penn via strikes. The Prodigy got his right eye swallowed up, but the warrior spirit of the multi-time UFC Champion played its game, as the fight went to distance.
In round 3, BJ Penn managed to go toe-to-toe with Nick Diaz, but it was still not enough to change the course of events in the fight. Diaz continued to taunt and punish Penn, en route to what is without a doubt the biggest victory of his Mixed Martial Arts career. All three judges scored the bout unanimously for Nick Diaz, who improves his MMA record to 26-7.
Nick Diaz calls out GSP
After defeating BJ Penn, Nick Diaz started to curse and shout "George, I want that sh*t" and something else that also included the universal word "mother****er". During his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan Nick Diaz declared he thinks Georges St. Pierre is faking his injury, in order not to compete at UFC 137.
It's hard to understand why Nick Diaz calls out Georges St. Pierre, since the French-Canadian was scheduled to fight Diaz's original opponent - Carlos Condit. One way or another, Diaz's post-fight interviews always deliver, as according to many, the 209 resident already jumped Condit for a title shot opportunity against Georges St. Pierre.
GSP, who was sitting first row center at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, looked not impressed with Diaz's performance, smiling and making "shaking" impressions to the camera. Looks like Nick Diaz is not on St. Pierre's mind just yet.
