Nate Diaz Calls GSP ‘A Steroid Cheater,’ Refuses To Fight Him

Earlier this week, UFC president Dana White told the UFC Unfiltered podcast that the promotion is working on booking a lightweight bout between former welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz for UFC 227 on August 4th at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Younger Diaz sends a scathing message to Georges St-Pierre via his official Facebook account, calls him cheater who is selling “wolf tickets” to UFC fans. He also brought up some history of St-Pierre who foul play before his UFC 158 title defense against Diaz’s older brother, Nick Diaz, citing a (PED) use and a failure to make weight. However, St-Pierre never tested positive for a banned substance under the UFC’s drug-testing program.

It seems like Nate Diaz was being informed about this bout, but for confusingly, some of the St-Pierre’s teammates told former UFC title contender and current analyst, Kenny Florian, that they had no idea about the matchup.

It’s unclear whether this is a publicity stunt from younger Diaz but St-Pierre is one big name that could bring Nate back to Octagon.

St-Pierre returned to famed Octagon after four years of hiatus from sports, to claim the UFC middleweight title after submitting Michael Bisping at UFC 217 back in 2017. A month later, he relinquished the title citing medical condition but expressed an interest to competing again at either 155 pounds or 170 pounds. St-Pierre has not publicly commented on the proposed fight yet.

Nothing is official at this time, and Diaz hasn’t fought since losing a majority decision to Conor McGregor at UFC 202 back in 2016.
