Nick Diaz UFC

Have you noticed Georges St-Pierre has received more coverage in UFC 143 promos than Carlos Condit? Well, Nick Diaz (Pictured) certainly has and he’s disgusted by it.

“Yeah, I think it makes me sick,” Diaz said of St-Pierre overshadowing Condit. “This is Carlos’ time to be here and to be a part of this main event. This is … half of the show is built up around me fighting Georges St-Pierre, but that’s not [right]. I’m fighting Carlos Condit. So, I don’t like it.”

GSP’s presence in the pre-fight footage wouldn’t be an issue if he was actually defending his crown at UFC 143, but the fact of the matter is that he isn’t. In actuality, the reigning welterweight king’s surgically-repaired knee is at least four months away from training at full capacity and roughly nine months out from stepping back inside the Octagon.

Although St-Pierre has been floating around Vegas all fight week, Diaz has tried his best to pay him no attention as he’s not an immediate threat. However, that didn’t stop Mr. 209 from slipping in a slight diss during Thursday’s press conference.

“You’re more in danger of losing a decision to Georges St-Pierre,” Diaz expressed of GSP’s propensity of having the judges determine his fate. “I think you’re more in danger of losing your teeth if you’re fighting Condit.”

Diaz and Condit meet for the interim welterweight title tomorrow night inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
