Georges St-Pierre: “I believe if the right BJ Penn shows up, he’ll win the fight.”

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre has backed his bitter rival, BJ Penn to take home the win when he faces off with the last man to wear Strikeforce 170 pound strap, Nick Diaz this weekend at UFC 137 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Speaking via, St. Pierre said:

“I think BJ Penn will win the fight because I believe he has more skills. If he uses all his set of skills then BJ Penn will win. But, the thing with BJ Penn is sometimes you don’t know what BJ Penn will show up to the fight.

“If he’s well prepared or injured – I don’t know. Sometimes, I saw him perform very well at the best of his ability and he’s the best guy. But when he doesn’t perform at the best of his ability he can be beat. Nick Diaz is very consistent, he has a similar style of fighting all the time. But, I believe if the right BJ Penn shows up, he’ll win the fight.”
