Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz? Not “Out of the Picture”

The hot topic of late has been the first fight between a UFC champion and Strikeforce champion since Zuffa took ownership of both companies; the fight being between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz.

Only the fight isn’t happening, but it is, sort of, but maybe not yet.

UFC president Dana White addressed the recent rumors, saying that UFC champion Georges St-Pierre and Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz are not signed to fight each other at UFC 140 in Montreal. Nor are they coaching the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

But he feel short of saying the fight would not happen. It just isn’t signed.. yet.

“I wouldn’t say that Diaz is out of the picture, but we just don’t know yet,” said White as reporters grilled him following Wednesday’s UFC 130 preflight press conference.

“If I gave you a percentage (of the odds the fight will happen), I’d be speaking out of turn. Nothing has been worked out.”

He did, however, appear to talk Diaz out of taking a professional boxing bout in the meantime… so the door is open.
