Georges St-Pierre: Nick Diaz Has the Style to Make Me Look Good (UFC 158 video)


Georges St-Pierre at UFC 79Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is a fight that the UFC welterweight champ wants for many reasons. It’s a grudge match of sorts after all the trash talk that Diaz has flung GSP’s way, but there is another reason that St-Pierre wants the fight… because Nick Diaz will force his hand to be the best he can be come fight time.

“I believe Nick has the style to make me look good because he pushes the pace a lot,” said St-Pierre in a recent UFC interview. “He’s gonna make the best out of me to come out for that fight.”

St-Pierre has been criticized a lot over the past couple years for not finishing fights, for putting his opponents on the mat, but not closing the deal. His last five fights have gone the distance. They were all victories for St-Pierre, but all went bell to bell.

That could very well happen once again with Diaz, but with Diaz’s style, it’s still unlikely to be a boring fight, and St-Pierre relishes the challenge before him.

St-Pierre and Diaz will square off on March 16 in the UFC 158 main event at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
