UFC vs. SF Superfight: Nick Diaz could be the next opponent for Georges St-Pierre

UFC President, Dana White revealed that the first ever major UFC vs. Strikeforce fight could involve welterweight champions, Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz after the Canadian defeated Jake Shields last night at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Dana White, speaking at the UFC 129 post-fight press conference, said:

“I imagine I could do whatever I wanted to do if I really wanted. But we have a contract with Showtime, and he’s a Strikeforce fighter. We’ll see how it works out, but that’s an interesting fight. I’ll tell you what, I was there for that last fight, and I was blown away by his last fight. He looked incredible. It’s interesting.”

Jake Shields was asked for his thoughts on the fight, saying:

“I think he has a good shot. He has a style that matches up pretty good. His pressure boxing could cut him off and put pressure on him. We don’t know what happens until we see it, so I’d like to see it.”
