Zahabi: I've never seen Georges this angry

by Matt Erickson |

On Saturday night Georges St-Pierre battles Nick Diaz for his welterweight championship and this might be the most fired up Georges St-Pierre we have ever seen. See what Georges himself and trainer Firas Zahabi had to say about being angry going into this fight:

"They take some line that I said ... I don't know when I said that (about being angry)," St-Pierre told ( "There's only three guys that have been nice with me in the UFC, that never said anything bad about me leading up to the fight. All the rest have said bad stuff, so I'm used to that position. It's no big deal."

But Firas Zahabi, his longtime trainer and coach at Tristar Gym in Montreal, on Wednesday told that his star pupil might not yet realize just how angry he really is after what amounts to years of trash talk from Diaz.

"I think I've never seen Georges this angry," Zahabi said. "Maybe he doesn't realize it as much, but he's been insulted many times – worse, even. But I think what pissed off Georges the most is he was insulted while he was sidelined. Nobody else insulted him except Nick Diaz when he was sidelined. He said, 'You're faking. Where are you? Don't be scared,' insinuating that he was lying about his injury. He had a serious injury, and I think Georges carried that with him a long time. After his operation, Georges was in a lot of pain, and he had guys on his list – and Nick Diaz was on top of it."

Doesn't seem like Nick hates the press at all.

It does seem that GSP is pretty upset in general. His last few interviews he has been very down in the dumps kinda. I gotta believe he is really starting to hate the press just as much as nick does.

If GSP is upset that'd give nick an edge. Nicks style can be nerve racking.

Hendricks vs Condit should be a great fight. I have been out of the loop a bit, so I haven't followed Ellenberger's career. No idea how good he is.

Then order it for the other fights on the card Hendricks vs Condit and Marquardt vs Ellenberger should both be awesome fights.
