Georges St. Pierre will be in Las Vegas this weekend and you can expect to see him in the cage at the conclusion of the nights main event.
Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit will fight for the interim UFC Welterweight Title and St. Pierre will be anxiously watching to see who he will face later this year.
GSP talked about the post fight confrontation this week:
"I don_t like to be there. I don_t like confrontation," St-Pierre told The Canadian Press. "But I know it_s necessary for the promotion of the sports. The UFC, they force us to do it sometime. They love it."
"I think it_s disrespectful (to get into the cage). When a guy wins, I think it_s his moment of glory and I don_t want to overshadow that. He wins, he deserves that moment."
"I don_t think (Diaz is) a bad human being. I just think to my eyes, he_s disrespectful (to me) because I_m fighting him.
"I do not believe in bad persons. I think everybody has issues, like I do have issues. I_m not a perfect human being. I have qualities and issues, Diaz has qualities and issues. Even though I believe he_s a good person, he just has maybe bad social skills. Maybe the camera makes him nervous. Who knows? But I don_t think he_s a bad person."
