In this video Georges gives his thoughts on the upcoming UFC 158 bout against Nick Diaz on Saturday March 16, 2013 at 7pm/10pm PT/ET airing live on Pay-Per-View from Montréal, Québec at the Bell Centre. Without further ado check out Georges thoughts on the upcoming fight courtesy of our friends at the UFC.
UFC 158 Sat Mar 16 live on Pay-Per-View and set in Canada, the welter weight belt will be contested by Nick Diaz. The fight which was the buzz of the MMA world, back before Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz fought for the right to call themselves the #1 contender, is back in effect and mma fans couldn’t be happier. Below is a video, from a UFC prefight press conference, where both fighters give their views about the upcoming bout.
What was with Nick Diaz’s comment on Canadian steroid testing all about anyway?
It used to be that the best pound for pound UFC fighter was between two men, George ‘Rush’ St-Pierre and Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva. Recent stars have since shined too bright to be ignored and UFC fighters Jon ‘Bones’ Jones (16-1) and Jose Aldo (21-1) must be mentioned when considering a pound for pound champion.
With GSP and The Spider comming off of injuries it seems the UFC is still not suffering from a lack of talent. Younger fighters keep stepping into the lime light and displaying an arsenal of mma skills. It’s very interesting to see where the future for these fighters will lead.
It looks as though things are starting back up for the UFC Welterweight champion, Georges ‘Rush’ St Pierre (22-2-0), where he recently posted a video to youtube stating that he’s looking forward to UFC 143 where Nick Diaz (26-7-0) will meet Carlos Condit (27-5-0) for the interim welterweight championship. The winner of Nick Diaz vs Carlos Condit will ultimately have to validate the title by facing off against GSP when he’s received the go ahead from his doctors.
It seems as though most fight fans are writing Carlos Condit off, as though he is just waiting to become a Nick Diaz highlight reel. Nick Diaz has become a household name for many fight fans, but the fact is that Carlos Condit is a very game opponent for anyone in the welterweight division. For fight fans not entirely familiar with Carlos Condit we have secured a short video of some of his fight footage, all rights belong to the UFC and ZUFFA for the following footage shown.
It appears that the welterweight champ, Georges St Pierre (22-2), will be sidelined for the next 10 months following a new injury, obtained training for Nick Diaz (26-7), that caused serious knee problems.
Apparently the surgery went as well as could be expected but the injury is so severe that it will take that amount of time to fully rehabilitate the injury, according to Georges’ facebook page:
It’s been a month since my surgery and very happy with results- really amazing what the body is capable of. On deck for physio: manual therapy for patellar and scar tissue mobilization, ice, ultrasound, compression, quad sets, straight leg raises, isometric quad and hamstring exercises, increased ROM and stationary cycling…I’d love to hear any tips you might have that could help me!
Until Georges is fight ready, the world of MMA will soldier on and the belt will go up for an interim title holder. Taking the champs place will Carlos Condit (27-5) against Nick Diaz.
We here at the MMA Beatdown wish Georges St. Pierre a speedy recovery, and we will be looking very forward to your return to the octagon.

That’s right! Looks like the big hitter of the MMA world has finally reached the network that promotes all major sporting events. It seems as though MMA can not be ignored as the number one growing sport.
