Zahabi: GSP still wants Diaz


"Everywhere we go the fans are asking me for Nick Diaz. They're always asking me when Georges is going to fight Nick Diaz. And when I tell them, he's retired they have this crazy look on their face, like that's crazy they still have to fight. I think Georges wants that fight.

I think Diaz deserves a lot of money for that fight. I think they should pay him significantly, I think it'd be a big fight. I think everybody would be watching. Nobody would miss that fight. And I think for Diaz, he's not happy. From what I hear Nick Diaz is not happy with all the judging in the sport, and I can understand all that, but hopefully he changes his mind. He's a great fighter and definitely a lot of people want to see that fight."

Nick will never get a license again from the NSAC, will Dana take the risk with another state licensing Nick?

Why would that be fair? He lost the fight then went and failed a piss test and should instantly get a title fight?

I thought he was over his latest emotional outburst and that "retirement" talk was just blowing steam. I didn't think it was still his "official" statement. Anyway, with the suspension it doesn't matter that much but damn at leaving all that money on the table for himself AND his team just because he has baby tantrum issues!

Id set it up where Nick fights Rory as his comeback fight. After he schools Rory they set up a Nick/GSP battle. Where GSP gets to avenge Rory's loss. It would be a good comeback fight for Nick, and make for a great story line. GSP would go for the kill.
