Georges St-Pierre Talks Nick Diaz, Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit & More

Duane FinleyContributor IDecember 17, 2012

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is a busy man these days. After making a successful return to form by defeating Carlos Condit at UFC 154, GSP is already back in the spotlight with the announcement that his next bout will come against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in March.

While a showdown with the Stockton bad boy is a fight that has been brewing for some time, St. Pierre's decision to fight the Cesar Gracie-trained fighter rather than Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks has created waves. Many consider Bigg Rigg to be the true No. 1 contender. But St. Pierre believes the unfinished business with Diaz needs to be addressed first and foremost. 

This past Saturday at the The Ultimate FIghter 16 finale in Las Vegas, the reigning welterweight king explained his decision to fight Diaz, the lingering superfight with Anderson Silva and discussed his performance against Condit in Montreal.
