Diaz Wishes “Cheater” GSP Well in Retirement
While many in the MMA community would send out congratulatory messages to Georges St-Pierre upon his retirement from the sport on Thursday, former opponent Nick Diaz… He was decidedly Nick Diaz.
“[GSP] fights like a b**ch and always has I fought him and he cheats to f**k you b**ch a** sport,” Diaz wrote on his Instagram story. “I fight for real and I won. I don’t play ball. Life’s not a game the UFC is.”
Diaz went on to say, “Congrats, nice to see someone leave well enough alone for once.”
The issue stems from when Diaz challenged then welterweight champion St-Pierre at UFC 158, where Diaz would lose by unanimous decision. Since that night in Canada, both Nick and Nate Diaz accused St-Pierre of cheating, with Diaz accusing the Canadian fighter of having his pre-fight IV poisioned.
“GSP cheated when he fought my brother he was on steroids,” Diaz wrote. “He was overweight and they let him be because we were in Montreal and his boy gave Nick a bad IV now they selling u wolf tickets on me GSP you can clear that shit up or fight yourself, cheater.”
Diaz has not fought since 2015, and has made it clear that he’d rather “party” than fight, unless “there was an offer I couldn’t refuse, things would be different.”
