Georges St-Pierre recently made an GSP-pulling-for-Diaz-November-return/">appearance HDNet's Inside MMA, and said he hoped to be back in the cage on November and that he hoped it was against Nick Diaz, not the "very nice" Carlos Condit.
Diaz and Condit will fight for the Interim UFC Welterweight title at UFC 143 on February 4, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada, live on Pay Per view. The title was vacated when a knee injury took GSP out of the game for an extended period.
"GSP's rehab could not be going better," said White. "I kid you not, he texts me every day. Tonight during the fight, he was texting me pictures of him kicking, of him doing things.
"He says, 'I am praying every night when I go to bed that Nick Diaz wins this fight.' I have never seen Georges St. Pierre ... hate somebody. He hates Nick Diaz. I've never seen him hate somebody. I've never seen him so motivated to fight somebody, and to beat somebody as he is Nick Diaz.
"He's ahead of schedule now, being the freak of nature that he is, and the hard worker and dedicated athlete that he is, I think he's going to be back sooner than doctors anticipated."
Ariel Helwani sought clarification. "So perhaps the summer time?"
