This antediluvian tale is done.
History was against this fight. There was a universe of improbabilities going into Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz. Strikeforce could have never been purchased by ZUFFA. Nick could have missed another press conference and lost his shot at the title. Johny Hendricks could have been awarded the championship shot before Nick. The 2012 Mayan Apocalypse could have actually happened, removing Earth from its planetary neighbors. An innumerable amount of scenarios could have happened to prevent the world from seeing a fight that has been in the making for nearly a decade.
But the fight happened — and it went down exactly how everyone thought it would.
Georges St. Pierre didn’t score every takedown — but he was more effective at it than Diaz. GSP didn’t land every jab — but he was far more effective at it than Diaz. Georges St. Pierre outboxed and outwrestled Nick Diaz for twenty-five minutes. His performance was so stellar that Nick Diaz didn’t win a single round.
That’s domination that is simply unmatched in the welterweight division. There is no argument as to who the greatest welterweight in MMA is. His name is Georges St. Pierre — and his riddum is unmatched.
