After putting on an impressive performance against BJ Penn at UFC 137, it’s now confirmed that Georges St. Pierre will now fight Nick Diaz instead of Carlos Condit.
At the UFC 137 Post Fight Press Conference, Dana White announced that he had a big announcement, but wouldn’t say what it was until Nick Diaz arrived. Apparently, Diaz was having problems urinating for his post-fight drug test and still couldn’t pee after drinking ten bottles of water. Eventually, Diaz came out and took his seat with Nevada State Athletic Commission officials next to him, and that’s when Dana White made his big announcement: Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz are going to fight, hopefully on Super Bowl weekend.
Dana White told everyone that St. Pierre chased White down and flipped out about how disrespectful Nick Diaz was during his post fight interview with Joe Rogan. St. Pierre went on and said that Nick Diaz is the most disrespectful human being he has ever met in the MMA world and he is going to put the worst beating on him.
As for Carlos Condit, Dana White asked him to wait until Diaz and St. Pierre settled their differences and he agreed. It now is rumored that Condit is also looking to fight, and he may be put on the Super Bowl weekend card as well.
