GSP: Right now, I'm only thinking about Nick Diaz

by Lance Pugmire | source:

"He can throw punches, but he's a good mix [as an MMA fighter] too -- a well-rounded guy who's on top of his game right now," St-Pierre said of Diaz on Tuesday, ending his session under Roach's watch as boxing junior-welterweight champion Amir Khan entered the gym for a workout.

Diaz is the only man standing between St-Pierre and his mission to "clean out" the UFC's welterweight division, so he can move on to the MMA fight fans so badly want, between him and middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

"I don't want to have to go up in weight so much, then come back down and hurt my fighting because of it," St-Pierre said. "I'm trying to learn from other people's mistakes. Silva walks around at 225 [pounds] to 230. My biggest is 185-190. So it's a situation where, 'Is it going to be fought at a catch weight?'

"After this [Diaz] fight, I need to reconsider my career, sit and talk with everyone. Right now, I'm only thinking about Nick Diaz."

If that is the case, then BJ should be fighting at 145.  He is already fighting one full weight class higher than he could at 155.

Anderson is standing with a much wider stance so thats why they appear to be close in height,stand with a wide stance and see how much shorter you are

So, I take it you have some proof GSP was offered a fight with Silva before he was offered Shields or Diaz? Until you do, I call bullshit on all the haters.

Yeah because Joe Silva can force George to fight him, you don't just make a fight and it happens.

There is so much crossover on MMA forums that the content and attitude is ubiquitous. UG is better because the OG is here :).

Oh yeah, and for the record, on topic:It's not St. Pierre's responsibility to make this fight. The UFC keeps putting WW in front of him and MW in front of Silva. As long as they both keep getting opponents in their own weight class I don't see how you can blame anyone other than Joe Silva. Bitch at him. Tell him to stop scheduling them to fight other people FFS.

I'm sad now. After hanging out at Sherdog for awhile and continuously hearing how this UG place was awesomely so much better that even the fighters post here, I check it out and find it's full of the same idiotic bs about the fighters that you find everywhere else. The only difference is that it's still in Zuffa's good graces for some reason.It's pathetic. Negative shit all the time. I bet if I created a thread in praise of a fighter it'd either be totally ignored or flooded with haters but if I said something negative it would fill up with arguments just like this thread. You people suck donkey dick. I'll stick to the fighter created threads. At least people seem to show them a bit of respect when talking to them directly.
