Nick Diaz: St-Pierre’s anti-PED stance ‘sounds like old Lance Armstrong’

Quote:
Former UFC title challenger Nick Diaz discusses Georges St-Pierre’s comments about his decision to fight Anderson Silva at 185-pounds, as well as the Canadian’s anti-PED stance.

While it has been well over a year-and-a-half since Nick Diaz faced then-welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in the main event of UFC 158, it appears the Stockton native still carries a certain amount of animosity towards the former champ.

In his debut appearance on The MMA Hour, Diaz discussed a variety of topics, yet focused on several comments made by St-Pierre with regards to his upcoming fight against Anderson Silva at UFC 183. GSP had stated that he was not convinced that Diaz's decision to fight Silva at 185-pounds was an intelligent one.

Unimpressed with the suggestion, Diaz immediately responded on the show, "How the f**k does he know?"

While Diaz did not delve into why he is not concerned about the size difference between himself and Silva, he offered GSP some advice: Either step into my shoes, or your opinion is invalid.

"Who knows, maybe I have a harder time making weight than old Georges does," Diaz added. "The fact of the matter is you don't know what the f*** you're talking about until you're actually the guy in the driver's seat," Diaz said. "So you can f***in' run your mouth, or you know, you can be the ball and do what you got to do.

"But I don't know, I don't go ahead and give my opinion on what I think fighters should've done or would've done, because I'm not them. You don't know what's what, you don't know all the details of what's what. But if he's going to have things to say, just say what he wants to say."

For Nick, the decision to face Silva was one that required little consideration.

"I'm not fanatical about being an MMA fighter," he explained. "I'll fight the right fight if I get the right opportunity."

While the topic of discussion turned towards PED regulation and the French-Canadian's public stance on the matter, Diaz interrupted Helwani mi-sentence to blurt out, "Did they finally catch him for steroids?"

Following a quick recap of St-Pierre's anti-PED stance, Diaz made one simple comment that summed up his thoughts on the matter.

"Sounds like old Lance Armstrong."
To be fair, when GSP made those comments on Chael's podcast, he was answering a question Chael asked, he wasn't just throwing a statement out there. Also, GSP only said good things about Nick, even comments favoring him to win if he can take the fight into deep waters. The weight comment was the only thing you could take away as a negative comment, which in context, wasn't all that negative.

Yeah but you know how fans/media love to take every statement made out of context then regurgitate it back to the fighters hoping to make something out of nothing.

Im sure GSP doesn't watch Nicks interviews either..

Armstrong had the most sophisticated and elaborate set up when it comes to doping and even formed a charity to fight cancer based off lies.

There may not be a bigger piece of trash on the planet than Armstrong.

Bah, he cheated but that's not quite worth all the value you're assigning it.

I lived in Austin (where Armstrong lives) when that was going down.
The guy is an absolute scumbag for sure. He deserves every single bit of shit he gets.

Nick is just bitter because he spent so much time making an ass out of himself talking shit about GSP and then got completely embarrassed. I hadn't been that satisfied after an MMA fight since Cain/JDS II.

That being said, if it does come out that GSP did infact dope, I will take back every bad thing I've said about Nick and proclaim him genius supreme. We've seen seemingly untouchable guy fall, Armstrong, Woods, Favre. It's not out of the question. I still want to know if dirt could ever be found on Jordan or Gretzky.

Ummm Jordan has a known serious gambling problem. He's also another huge douche bag the guy couldn't even accept the hall of fame without shitting on people. No clue about Gretzk probably cheated on his wife like every other pro athlete.

Also GSP is juicing or was juicing. He's just a smart man. So he won't ever be dumb enough to get caught like say a Vitor.

Wasn't aware of Jordan's gambling problem as I don't follow basketball, but damn I stand corrected. Looked it up and you're right. I thought at worst he was just a bad NBA team owner who smoked cigars like Marlboro's.

Why do you think GSP was or is juicing?

You've always got to remember that while they're the best in what they do, and can maintain a clean image, they're still athletes. Athletes are not exactly known to be the smartest people around. Besides, everybody's got skeletons in the closet.

So Gretzky cheated on his wife and GSP juiced because you like to think they did, well break out the presses, we got facts here.

I think you're a serial killer because I read a lot of tabloids and I believe statistically every second person is a serial killer

Also Jordan's gambling problem is a bit exaggerated. Sure it's not ideal, but the man has never been in gambling or debt for maybe 7 figures in his entire life, most of the times much less like $10000 or "high stakes" golf bets at $100000. Here's an article summarising it:

http://hoopshype.com/columns/lazenby...d-for-gambling

These may seem like large figures to us, but they're basically pocket change to a guy whose net worth is $1 billion, certainly not enough to affect him or his family financially, who are and always have been comfortably well off thanks to his work and generally good investments unlike most pro athletes. It's the equivalent of us going out and blowing $5000 at the tables on a vegas vacation. Not a good thing or habit, and probably something our ladies would be mad about, but quite not a life changing addiction either.

His HOF speech was also pretty mild, so he called out a few people that were douchebags to him on his way up. Big deal. It would've been nice if he had been forgiving and the bigger person, but most of the people he called out did douche acts themselves, his only flaw was calling them out in public, not that he actually did anything back. Petty sure, but nothing to cry about.

In Jordan's defense the Hornets are a somewhat respectable playoff contender nowadays with Jefferson, Walker, and Stephenson. Took a long time but they're getting better.

Had he just cheated that'd be a fair statement, but Armstrong ruined peoples lives and is a pathological liar, what he did goes way beyond PEDs.
