GSP Still Wants Diaz Fight | Offers Wise Words To Diaz Against Leaving The UFC


“As far as Diaz, of course I would like to fight him because he thinks he’s better than me. I think I’m better than him. But I think he should not retire. He did all of the sacrifice in his life to be where he’s at right now. He’s at the highest point of his career, and if he retires now, he’s left a lot of money on the table that could pay for all of the sacrifices he has made during all those years. I think the sport of mixed martial arts needs a guy like him.”

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been hitting the media rounds hard lately. I guess the time off from training has given the champ a chance to connect with his fans through all the different media mediums available to him.

In his most recent interview with the Bruce Buffer radio show he touched on the Nick Diaz situation and spoke some wise words on the topic of Nick’s retirement announcement.

The welterweight champion makes a few very solid points. Nick Diaz has worked very hard to climb to the top of the ladder, one minor setback that many deem a robbery should not be the reason he retires.

There is still money to be made, there are still fans to entertain and Diaz still has a lot to prove not only to himself but to the rest of the world waiting for the next time he steps inside the cage.
