Former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion and two time UFC Welterweight Title challenger Nick Diaz has stated that he believes GSP was on Steroids during their fight a few years back. In an interview with Fox Sports, Diaz stated that he also believes that every fighter he has ever competed against was on steroids as well. It is especially odd to see Diaz cast suspicions on Georges St. Pierre for steroid use as GSP left the sport of MMA a little over a year ago because he felt that performance enhancing drugs (PED’s) were ruining the sport.
“As far as I’m concerned, everybody’s on steroids. Georges St. Pierre was on steroids when I fought him. They didn’t test us because I would have tested positive for sure. I thought it was my last fight ever. What do I care? It’s like almost asking too much to win and not give away that fine. I’m like what do I care about the fine? That dude needs to come back and give me another fight as far as I’m concerned. As long as I can fight. They did not test him for steroids for that fight. They did not test us. They didn’t test nobody for no steroids. They didn’t test nobody for smoking weed out there in Canada.”
Diaz is currently fighting the Nevada State Athletic Commission over a five year ban from the sport after he tested positive for marijuana metabolites. Diaz and his legal team are trying to get his sentence reduced, as his sentence was seen as an outrageous act by the commission. Diaz may not be stepping into a cage to compete anytime soon, but his mouth is still running and it is his best way to stay on the MMA forefront until an in-cage return takes place.
