St-Pierre: I don’t care what Diaz is going to try to do
“This is the fight that everyone wants to see,” St-Pierre said. “All the fans want to see it. It’s a fight that he wants. It’s a fight that I want, and I think it’s going to make the best version of me come out for the fight.”
So perhaps it’s not quite the personal mission we’ve been led to believe. Diaz’s rants seem to have struck a nerve with St-Pierre, but if that’s the case, the champ isn’t willing to acknowledge it. From his point of view, Diaz is simply the next guy in line.
“All fights are very, very important,” St-Pierre said. “It’s a very, very tough fight for me. But they’re all very important.
“I believe everybody I fight has great things about them. They’re the best in the world at what they do. I think the same thing here, but I don’t care what Diaz is going to try to do to me. I care about I’m going to try to do to him. That’s what’s going to happen on March 16.”
And just exactly what is he looking to do?
“The perfect scenario would be ‘GSP’ victory via flying armbar 10 seconds into the fight,” St-Pierre said with a laugh. “That would be awesome.”
