UFC president Dana White earlier this week confirmed that he was hoping to put together a fight between Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz. St-Pierre and Diaz have since been fairly quiet on the topic… until Friday.
Diaz on Friday issued a confusing comment via his Facebook page, addressing the fight.
“GSP cheated when he fought my brothers he was on steroids [sic],” Diaz wrote. “He was overweight and they let him because we were in Montreal and his boy gave Nick a bad iv. Now they selling u wolf tickets on me GSP you can clear that s–t up or fight yourself cheater [sic].”
Exactly what Diaz was trying to say isn’t the easiest to understand, but could it be that he welcomes the opportunity to fight St-Pierre now that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is testing all UFC athletes both randomly and on fight nights?
Earlier this week, White said that Nate and his brother, Nick, had both been continuously turning down fights, but that he was working to make the fight between Nate Diaz and St-Pierre come together at UFC 227 in Los Angeles in August.
“They keep turning down the fights, which extends their contract, but we are working right now to try to put together a Georges St-Pierre vs. Nate Diaz fight. It is true and they would fight at 155 pounds,” said White.
