Georges St. Pierre Would Rather Fight Nick Diaz Than Carlos Condit

Georges St. Pierre knows who he wants to win when Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit square off for the interim welterweight championship at UFC 143. On last night’s episode of Inside MMA, GSP told Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten that he likes Condit better as a person, but when it comes down to who he wants to steps in the cage with when he returns from knee surgery, he wants Diaz. The reason is simple: Diaz’s trash talking has him motivated and believes it will bring out the best in him.

As for his return, he’s hoping to start “hard training” in July to get ready for a fight in November.
