Georges St. Pierre UFC 217

Former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre recently appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, and he mocked the accusations made against him by his longtime rival and one-time opponent, Nick Diaz. Below are some highlights and a video of GSP’s appearance on the show:

GSP making a joking confession about his fight with Nick Diaz: “They said that I took steroids when I fought [Nick], I messed up my wraps, I didn’t make weight, and I put something in his IV. . .” St-Pierre said. “I gotta confess, Joe. I gotta confess. I was so scared of fighting Nick Diaz so we poisoned his IV. But he survived so I was even more terrified, so all the athletic commission was on my payroll so they tricked the weigh-in and I made it. But he went through [with the fight] so I was even more terrified, so the alien abducted me and put the gamma rays to increase my strength like the Hulk, like a performance enhancing drug. But the fight was still happening so right before I put some glass and cement in my gloves to make sure, and I still had a crazy hard fight. [Laughs].”

Georges St-Pierre on Nick Diaz’s conspiracy theories: “It’s completely insane. . . I think he has a problem of conspiration (sic). He thinks everybody is against him. . . I think that’s what it is. I don’t know if it’s the weed but maybe weed with the social environment and genetics can create some kind of disorder in the brain and make you have conspiracy problems. You think everybody is against you. I’ve seen a lot of my friends who smoke a lot have this problem. Sometimes they’re paranoid.”

GSP’s thoughts on Nick Diaz: “There’s reaction time and reset time when you fight. Nick Diaz, he makes people tired, that’s why he wins fights. He’s kind of a slow guy but people get more tired than him quickly, especially in their nervous system. . . Nick Diaz, that’s why he’s so good and it’s sad for him that he doesn’t fight. His best years are now! He should be fighting now! He should do it now.”
