The UFC brought out it’s big guns to announced its new TV deal with Fox. The company’s “A-List” in attendance included not only UFC president Dana White, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, and UFC VP Chuck Liddell, but also fighters such as Georges St-Pierre, Frankie Edgar, and Rashad Evans.

All of them are excited for the fruits that will soon be coming their and the UFC’s way because of this landmark TV deal, but UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre actually had a lot more to say about his next opponent, former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz, than the broadcast agreement.

Diaz has a knack for getting under his opponent’s skin, and although GSP pride’s himself on not getting overly emotional about his fights, he had to admit that he feels somewhat disrespected by Diaz’s comments that the UFC champ was ducking him.

St-Pierre and Diaz will square off on Oct. 29 at UFC 137 in Las Vegas.
