Nick Diaz wants GSP

Quote:
Nick Diaz Wants to Fight “More Important People,” UFC Champ Georges St-Pierre Tops Wish List

After taking a unanimous decision win over bitter rival KJ Noons on Saturday night, Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz is now focused on bigger and better things. In fact, he’s got his sights set on the baddest thing the division has to offer.

“I want to get on to fighting some more important people, not that [Noons] is not a great fighter. I’ll give it to you, man. You’re a good fighter. Ya know, this guy built a name on me. I want to fight somebody who built their own name in MMA,” Diaz told FIGHT! Magazine after collecting his eighth consecutive W. “I want to fight the best in the world. So if you don’t think I’m the best in the world, then bring me the best in the world.

“I want to fight Georges St. Pierre. I think he’s the best and I think that if you don’t think I’m the best, then let me fight this guy. I think people need to stand up and say something. Make this happen.”

GSP is currently busy dominating everything that comes across his Octagon path and wasn’t available for comment…

Although, if UFC brass weren’t able to arrange a blockbuster bout between anyone on their heavyweight roster and Fedor Emelianenko, it would stand to reason they aren’t gonna go out of their way to co-promote an undisputed welterweight title fight between St-Pierre and Diaz.

In the meantime, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said at the “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II” post-fight press conference that Diaz’s next opponent could be the winner between the Scott Smith/Paul Daley scrap on December 4th. He also hinted at a possible grudge match between Jason “Mayhem” Miller as well.

“Who’s out there? Come on, how do these guys expect to beat me? Who you got? Who’s out there? I’ve fought everybody,” he added. “They don’t let me fight Georges. I fought everybody that fought him already, pretty much.”

‘Pretty much’ being the operative term. In 22 professional contests, GSP has faced 19 different fighters. Thomas Denny, Sean Sherk and Karo Parisyan are their only common opponents.

Hmmm don't see it happening. Co-promotion is just never gonna be an option, so nick either has to move (probably for a pay cut) or has to face up to the fact that he wont be fighting GSP any time soon.

Diaz would get mauled of GSP, what's more if Daley beats Smith (which he will) i have no doubt that Diaz would be stupid enough to stand with Daley... that would be a very short night for Nick Diaz.

Ya, I think Dana might let Gsp go fight Nick Diaz when hell freezes over. Nick Diaz calling out GSP is no different than me calling out GSP.. It aint ever gonna happen. Even if he got to the ufc he'd probably not make it past the top contenders.

That's what people say every time Diaz fights, but he still lays the beat down himself. Diaz would tool Daley in every aspect. Gsp on the other hand would blue ball Diaz to a decision.

This made me laugh

On a serious note though, Diaz could be in the UFC if he wanted to. He just doesn't want to do business the way Dana wants him to and that's the basic problem...
If he wants the bigger challenges he needs to take a bigger responsibility for his own professionalism and behavior outside the cage...

I hope we see him in the big pond some day though

Not I.
I'm a GSP fan, but that cup is a little TOO large for me.

That being said, there is no possible area for Diaz to beat GSP. The fact that Diaz won a 48-47 decision over an undersized lightweight with no semblance of a ground game only justifies this.
