ST PIERRE WANTS DIAZ MATCH UP

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Welterweight champion of the UFC, Geroges St. Pierre, has been out of the action for quite some time, due to a knee injury. He is looking to make a comeback and hopes to face none other than the former champion of Strikeforce 170, Nick Diaz.

Wrestling fans have been waiting for a long time to see this match happen. The possibility of this match happening was announced in October of 2011. Since then, Diaz missed a few key press conferences which were supposed to promote the match, and was replaced by the king of the welterweight category, Carlos Condit. Pierre, subsequently, withdrew from the bout due to a knee injury he had sustained some time back. Pierre recently appeared on a talk show, “Inside MMA” hosted by Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten, where he spoke about his knee injury and when he hoped to return to the action. On the show, he said that the primary reason for the extended injury was that he hadn’t given his left knee enough time to heal and was overcompensating with his right knee. This caused him to injure that as well. He hopes to be back in the fighting cage by early November if everything goes according to plan. He is currently undergoing treatment.

The superstar of French-Canadian origin said that he would like to face Nick Diaz the next time he comes to the cage. In the meanwhile, the UFC has scheduled a match between Diaz and Condit to keep the fans happy. St. Pierre will be watching the match from the sidelines as the two fight it out to gain the welterweight title, and hoping to face Nick Diaz before the end of the year. Pierre also made it abundantly clear about who he would be backing in the title fight, saying that Nick Diaz is the best man and he’s like to see the best man win.
