Georges St-Pierre is as qualified as anyone to comment on the highly anticipated UFC 183 main event between returning former longtime middleweight champion Anderson Silva and his fellow returnee, former Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz. St-Pierre was Silva's contemporary for years atop the sport's pound-for-pound polls, and he fought Diaz, defeating him via decision at UFC 158.

Anderson Silva made his triumphant return to the Octagon last night (Sat., Jan. 31, 2015), taking on Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 183, which took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It wasn't an instant classic, but it was certainly great to see Silva get back into form after suffering such a terrible leg injury back in Dec. 2013. Was it top form? Not really -- he appeared tentative, not eager to get into a brawl with Diaz, who talked trash, clowned and baited the for read news >>

"I actually think he's right. For him to go up in weight at 185 pounds and fight a guy like Anderson Silva who many consider the greatest of all time, well, I think it's a smart decision by Georges. Georges wanted to fight more at a catchweight of 175 (pounds), maybe even 170 pounds, where it would be in his favor. So is GSP scared?

While much has changed in MMA over the past few years, at least we can take comfort in knowing that fewer things still liven up a Nick Diaz interview faster than the mention of Georges St-Pierre's name. In classic Diaz fashion, Stockton's favorite son meandered through a myriad of topics during Monday's appearance The MMA Hour, from his near two-year layoff to his upcoming return fight against Anderson Silva UFC 183.
