Straight from God’s mouth — or in this scenario, Dana White.
Today at the UFC on FOX 5 press conference, Dana White mentioned that Georges St. Pierre wants Nick Diaz and then responded ‘that’s probably the fight that will happen.’ Dana White also stated that Johny Hendricks is ‘not in the position to demand anything,’ regarding to his statement last week that he wants his next fight to be for the UFC welterweight title.
There you have it, Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is (almost) official. MMA media has been devoid of ‘Don’t be scared homie’ jokes. Great. That stuff was cool back in the day, but let’s face it, now it’s just an annoying cliche. It’s MMA’s version of ‘I’m Rick James, bitch,’ and as we all know, that saying killed Rick James. If you participated in that social meme, then you did your part in murdering the planet’s last Superfreak. How do you feel about yourself — and your senseless killing? Let’s do our best not to kill Nick Diaz before his upcoming shot against Georges St. Pierre.
