UFC superstar Nate Diaz was reportedly being targeted for a super fight against former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre. However, it would now appear that the fight is not going to happen.
Diaz has not competed inside the octagon since entering a two fight rivalry with Conor McGregor back in 2016. The Stockton native has since come forward to reveal that he is interested in making a bit octagon return.
UFC President Dana White claimed that Diaz vs. GSP was a fight potentially being targeted for August of 2018.
Speaking to MMA Junkie, Diaz has now come forward to claim that he is no longer interested in fighting St-Pierre.
“I’ve been trying to get in there and get going. I’ve been wanting to get in there and get going this year. I just got this lawsuit out of the way that I’ve been going through for the last two years, so I wasn’t even able to fight. So that’s all done and over, and I’m ready to get back to fighting if I’m going to be fighting anymore. …
“I’m training until there’s something good to do here.”
“No, I’m not fighting that fight,” Diaz said, when asked about the possibility of fighting St-Pierre.
“Like I said, he cheated when he fought my brother (Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in 2013), so I just had to bring up old sh-t because they’re trying to brush it off like it’s nothing,” Diaz said, discussing his accusations concerning St-Pierre’s previous fight against Nick Diaz. “I got other sh-t to do, and it was just weird because we never even really talked about it.”
“There was a fight I asked them for, and now that that fell through, we’re back to square one.”
“What people don’t understand is that any fight I fight is going to be a money fight. I’m not waiting for anybody. I’m just waiting for a motherf-cker to do something. Let’s get a real fight going. I’m not going to be involved in no weak sh-t.”
“Nobody interests me right now, but I’m interested in doing something. I don’t think the UFC wants any of those fights to happen because we haven’t been talking about none of them. So time will tell.”
