Former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz wasn’t able to figure out the wrestling of Georges St-Pierre until he was behind on the scorecards, dropping a decision to GSP at UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz Saturday night.
Diaz, who spent a year on the sidelines after failing his post-fight drug test following a loss to Carlos Condit, announced his retirement – again – from MMA. He also said the same thing after the Condit defeat.
“I just have to figure out whether I want to keep doing this. I don’t feel like I have it anymore,” Diaz said. “I’m tired of getting banged up like this. I’ve been thinking about it for a year. I’ve been trying to get out of this thing.”
Diaz stated that he “hopes he’s made enough money to do something else.” He didn’t want to make any excuses, but added that he “doesn’t like the way the sport” is going.
