UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre reveals why he thinks that bitter rival, Nick Diaz is the true number one contender, revealing that he didn’t want to face Johny Hendricks because is his eyes he felt that Josh Koscheck should have won the split decision when they faced off last year.

GSP, speaking at today’s UFC 158 press conference in Montreal, said:

“Nick and I were supposed to fight before and this was the big fight that people wanted to see. People wanted to see this fight more than me against any other guys. My other option was Johny Hendricks and Johny Hendricks, when I watched his fight against Josh Koscheck, according to me, I believe Josh Koscheck won that fight. I don’t want to fight a guy that lose to me that I beat. I think Nick Diaz is number one contender. He proved himself many times before and there is a story between us and it’s time to do it.”
