Conspiracy Theory Alert: Were Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz both drugged before UFC 158?

The truth is out there. Once you thought the feud between Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz is ready to be put to rest, another layer of the onion is peeled away. The first fight was already over three years ago and maybe the wildest accusations are just now being revealed from the UFC 158 main event?!?!

This is crazy!!! (Joe Rogan voice)

From the worlds of alien enriched grassy knolls filmed on a Hollywood soundstage we have accusations that before their UFC 158 one or both fighters were slipped something that affected their performance. Unsavory IVs? Crooked doctors? Bad watermelon juice? Double agents working for the other team spiking your drinks?

Truth is always stranger than fiction expect when it comes to GSP fighting Nick Diaz, then the truth gets sunk in the Bermuda Triangle only to zombie up for revenge three years later.

First up GSP’s coach talking about his fighter consuming a tainted beverage before UFC 158

The best laid plans of mice and men: As a coach one of the main aspects of my job is to conceive plans of action that raise the likelihood of an athlete winning an event. Yet despite our best intentions, there is always a good chance of things going awry that require spontaneous change and adaption in the face of unexpected circumstances. All the major MMA fight camps I have been a part of furnished unforeseen incidents and drama that could not have been predicted and which had to be overcome. Probably the most flawless and well run fight camp I ever saw was that of Georges St-Pierre in preparation for Nick Diaz (Interestingly, his prior fight camp with Carlos Condit was probably the worst). We had an excellent game plan, the physical preparation was excellent, superb choice of sparring partners, all match contingencies covered, no injuries, no backstage drama, perfect weight cut – everything was perfect – until the very night before the fight when Georges drank some watermelon juice for rehydration that had been too long out of the fridge and got a badly upset stomach. He spent the entire night vomiting. It was so sad to see such a perfect camp get ruined at the last minute by such a minor oversight. The night of the fight, Mr St-Pierre came in underweight and drained. We had to curtail the warm up for fear of exhausting him before the bout even began. There was some drama with Mr Diaz's camp insisting that both sides have their hand wraps double checked. This was done, but we did not want them to see how bad Mr St-Pierre looked, so he had to put on an act of confidence and vigor when they came in the dressing room. In the end, Mr St-Pierre showed why he was a great champion that night, putting on a dominant shut-out performance to win a unanimous decision – no one in the audience would have guessed how serious a problem he had to overcome. He used a system of pacing the rounds and timing the takedowns and allowing standing escapes to maintain the pace of the fight whilst controlling the action but at the same time, not exhausting himself. It worked brilliantly and the problem was overcome. This kind of adaptation is crucial in fight preparation at all levels.

Per John Danaher on maybe a plot to sabotage GSP

?????????????????????

And now a theory/story from Diaz’s boxing Coach Richard Perez. Speaking with Submission Radio, Perez gives the money quote at the 1 hour 48 minute and 8 second mark (1:48:08) about GSP, nurses, IVs, dehydration, sleep deprivation and a just wild UFC 158 conspiracy theory.

“Yeah, I remember that. Yeah I was there and it was Georges St-Pierre’s nurse or something, came down and he wanted to give Nick some kind of stuff. And I told Nick not to do it, but he gave it to him. So that’s what he’s talking about. I don’t know what it was. I’m not saying that it was a drug or anything, but I just know that he looked different (in the fight). He said he worked with Georges St-Pierre. He was up all night urinating. I mean he wasn’t feeling good because he was going to the bathroom a lot. I mean, I don’t know what it did, but I know he was going to the bathroom a lot, so it probably dehydrated him and drained him. I don’t know, but I just know I was sitting there and the guy wanted to give him something. I don’t know what it was for. I told him no, but he said it wouldn’t even hurt him. It was strange.”
