Nick Diaz Wants To Retire, Wants A Rematch With Georges St-Pierre, Blames Poor Training Camp…

Nick Diaz ran through the gauntlet of emotions Saturday night at UFC 158, and was unable to secure the UFC welterweight title from Georges St-Pierre.

First, Diaz nearly was disqualified after throwing a punch at GSP after a round had ended.

By the time the fifth round was finished, the two seemed to have re-gained a level of respect for one another, sharing a hug with Diaz even extending GSP’s arm in the air in victory.

However, just moments later during the FUEL TV post-fight show, Diaz laid these comments out there during a five-plus minute interview:

I could have had a better training camp. I’m not making excuses. Nobody had faith in me to win this fight. I think I could have stopped the takedowns and I could have gotten the takedowns. I was flat. The first two rounds, I was moving slow. The third and fourth round I was moving pretty good. I was hoping for a knockout.

I want a rematch. Georges St-Pierre, if you’d give me a rematch, I‘d appreciate it because I could beat you.

I’m trying to retire. I’m trying to get out of this gig. But I’d like a rematch. I think I can stop the takedowns and beat him. I’m not hurt. He hits like a woman. He hits like a girl because he’s too scared to let go to get a real punch in.

If all of those different responses and remarks don’t lead you to believe Diaz has some sort of mental issues, you might want to get checked out yourself. This is definitely the mind of a troubled soul.
