With Nick Diaz likely out due to an impending suspension from the NSAC, his rematch with Carlos Condit is also likely to be off the table and now Condit will instead wait for Georges St. Pierre to return from injury.
St. Pierre had hoped to face Diaz in his return but following his loss too Condit, Diaz announced his retirement, something St. Pierre doesn_t want to see Diaz do:
“As far as Diaz, of course I would like to fight him because he thinks he’s better than me,” St. Pierre told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “It’s Time” show with Bruce Buffer. “I think I’m better than him. But I think he should not retire. He did all of the sacrifice in his life to be where he’s at right now. He’s at the highest point of his career, and if he retires now, he’s left a lot of money on the table that could pay for all of the sacrifices he has made during all those years. I think the sport of mixed martial arts needs a guy like him.”
“Of course because of the emotion I wanted to fight Diaz, but now I want to fight Condit,” St. Pierre said. “I want to fight the best man, and the best man is Condit.”
