UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre didn’t want to talk anymore after the weigh-ins were complete for UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz. Instead, he offered up just one sentence to Joe Rogan.
“I can talk as much as I want, but tomorrow, I am going to walk the walk,” GSP said, much to the enjoyment of the fans who packed the Bell Centre.
St-Pierre has dealt with cross-fire from his opponent, Nick Diaz, for several years now. The two engaged in heated verbal battles during a conference call last week and the pre-fight press conference on Thursday.
Both weighed in officially for the fight, and Diaz took his interview time to offer thanks to those that helped get him to this point.
“I am going to get out there and fight,” he said. “I represent Stockton, California, Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my team; thank you very much.”
