Nick Diaz: “If I saw Georges on the street and called him a bitch, I bet you he wouldn’t do shit.”

Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz speaks more clearly on why he was pulled from the UFC 137 main event fight with Georges St-Pierre, but not before calling the champion a “bitch”.

Diaz, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I’m not trying to make all these little excuses. If I’d have known the fight was going to be off, I would have fucking gone to the press conference, or I would have told somebody, ‘Hey, if I don’t make it to this stupid shit, I’m not fighting.’ I think that people would have gotten me there. I think people would have come and gave two shits and gotten me to that press conference.”

“I didn’t even know there was a press conference. I thought it was some PR thing. People were trying to tell me, ‘You’re going to do this skit,’ and that I was going to be a part of some PR skit where I had this part where I was walking through a hall, kind of like that scene Jake Shields did. I was like, ‘What the fuck? Are you kidding?’ So I’m thinking, ‘Somebody better come over here and tell me what I’m doing and get me ready to go do it so I don’t look like an asshole.’ That’s how I feel when you’re coming to get me ready for something I’m not ready for. I didn’t know it was supposed to be a press conference until the same day I was supposed to be making it to the press conference. I just don’t like the way people are treating it and acting like I backed out of a fight. Why would I do that?”

“I really don’t appreciate this motherfucker sitting there at that press conference and laughing at me. That’s some real bitch shit. He’s sitting there laughing like it’s funny or something. If I saw Georges on the street and called him a bitch, I bet you he wouldn’t do shit. I bet you if I walked up and gave him a slap, I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t do shit. But you can’t do that to me. That’s not how it works for me. That’s something to fight about.”

“It makes me mad that Georges is going to sit there and call himself a fighter, but he’s not going to stand up and say something about this. He’s going to let it ride. I think I would say something. I would at least have said, ‘I disagree. I don’t agree with canceling my fight because of some dumbass fuck.’ Instead, he sat there and said, ‘He doesn’t have the commitment to be a champion.’ What is that? I obviously have the commitment to throw my life away. I’ve thrown my life away and sacrificed everything so that I can fight. I did that. I threw my life away so I could work hard and train and fight. That’s commitment.”
