GSP willing to rematch Nick Diaz in UFC return

Georges St-Pierre announced that he has already started the process with USADA to be eligible to fight in the UFC once again.

In an interview with Bloody Elbow, the former UFC welterweight king said that he is looking for not just one return fight in the Octagon, but multiple ones.

“It seems to me to me like it’s Nick Diaz that is running for another shot at me,” St-Pierre said. “I wouldn’t mind, I’m not afraid of Nick Diaz, I’ll tell you. I am telling you right now: If it’s what the fans want to see, I’m in.”

When asked if he is looking at a rematch with the elder Diaz brother as his first fight back in the Octagon, St-Pierre said it doesn’t really matter to him.

“I don’t care if it’s the first, or second, or third. If they want me to fight Nick Diaz it would be my pleasure. I don’t mind, I am not afraid of Nick Diaz, I beat him last time, and I’ll beat even worse, I’ll beat him way worse next time that I’ll fight him.

“I beat him last time easily, but I was not happy – It’s one of these fights that I’m not happy with. Because I didn’t feel like I gave enough, for different reasons. It left me angry that fight, when I look back at it – maybe I won, but for some reason it left me angry and I feel like I could have done so much better.”

It’s been nearly 3 years since Georges St-Pierre set foot in the Octagon. In that time, rumors have continued to surface regarding the former welterweight kingpin’s potential return to the Octagon.

The rumors reached an all-time high in recent months when St-Pierre reportedly reached out for a middleweight title fight with Michael Bisping. In addition, newly crowned welterweight champion Tyron Woodley called out a fight with St-Pierre.

On the heels of that, GSP revealed to BloodyElbow that he has started the process to return to the Octagon:

My agent is negotiating with the UFC, they had an offer, we made a counteroffer, you know that’s how business goes. And then we heard a day after that UFC sold for $4 billion dollars. So we waited for a few days, to see what was going on, because even some of the employees were afraid of losing their job – even some of the high ranking people in the UFC were afraid. We wanted to let the management to take care of their own company first, and then see what happens.

Now we’re talking again and I’m starting the USADA process to be tested, I’m starting it Aug 10. in Las Vegas. Because to be eligible to fight you need to be tested.

Tyron Woodley realized his dreams on Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia when he defeated Robbie Lawler to become the UFC welterweight champion of the world.

Woodley said now that he is the champion, he is looking for the biggest fights possible to generate the most money and doesn’t care about what the rankings are saying.

“Nick Diaz is a top-five welterweight of all time in my eyes,” Woodley said at the post-fight press conference (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “Georges St-Pierre is the No. 1 welterweight in my eyes. If I’m an athlete in this sport, in this division and I want to say I’m the best in the world, I feel like I should compete against those guys. So I don’t feel any obligation to go by the rankings. We all know how those rankings are produced anyway. And I want to go out there and I want to fight the money fights.”

MMA Fighting reached out to Georges St-Pierre via text message on Sunday and asked if he would be interested in fighting the new welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. “Rush” simply replied, “Yes.”

Will we see Georges St-Pierre return to the Octagon to fight Tyron Woodley?

GSP: “Of all the guys, I would NOT want to fight Condit again”‏

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre claims that out of all his previous opponents, “The Natural Born Killer” Carlos Condit was the biggest nightmare.

Here is what “Rush” had to say in a recent interview with Bloody Elbow’s Mark Bergmann:

“Carlos Condit is a nightmare,” St-Pierre said. “Of all the guys that I would not want to fight again, it would be Carlos Condit. Because Carlos Condit […] is very well rounded, things can come out of every angle, from everywhere. Johny Hendricks is very good at what he does. Not as surprising as Carlos Condit, but he’s very good at what he does. He hits very hard with his left. But I do believe right now, if you talk about ranking and positioning, the man that deserves the title shot would be Johny Hendricks. That’s what I believe. But Carlos Condit is not far behind. And on a five round fight, I believe right now in the mix, Carlos Condit might be the most dangerous guy. He has more weapons in his arsenal and you never know where it’s coming from. It’s just a nightmare fighting a guy like this.”

GSP continued:

“If I would have to bet – let’s have no choice – between Lawler, Hendricks and Condit, I believe Condit is the one that will emerge victorious. That’s on a five round fight. He’s a nightmare.”

Georges St. Pierre defeated Carlos Condit via unanimous decision at UFC 154 in November of 2012.
