GSP Will Be In The Octogon To Face Winner At UFC 143

Georges St. Pierre will be in Las Vegas this weekend and you can expect to see him in the cage at the conclusion of the nights main event.

Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit will fight for the interim UFC Welterweight Title and St. Pierre will be anxiously watching to see who he will face later this year.

GSP talked about the post fight confrontation this week:

“I don't like to be there. I don't like confrontation,” St-Pierre told The Canadian Press. “But I know it's necessary for the promotion of the sports. The UFC, they force us to do it sometime. They love it.”

“I think it's disrespectful (to get into the cage). When a guy wins, I think it's his moment of glory and I don't want to overshadow that. He wins, he deserves that moment.”

“I don't think (Diaz is) a bad human being. I just think to my eyes, he's disrespectful (to me) because I'm fighting him.

“I do not believe in bad persons. I think everybody has issues, like I do have issues. I'm not a perfect human being. I have qualities and issues, Diaz has qualities and issues. Even though I believe he's a good person, he just has maybe bad social skills. Maybe the camera makes him nervous. Who knows? But I don't think he's a bad person.”
