I hope Nick Diaz has good health insurance because the way Georges St. Pierre is talking, he might need it. During a media conference call involving both fighters for their bout at UFC 158 on march 16th, Diaz who is a master agitator, once again got St. Pierre to divert from his usual humble persona and engage in trash talk, according to Yahoo Sports Maggie Hendricks. Diaz, began by insulting the welterweight champion by calling him pampered. “I work hard regardless, through this [expletive], but I don’t have people toweling me off and handing me water bottles left and right, and getting my training paid for me,” Diaz said. “I’ve got to do all that [expletive] on my own, and every day I know it, and that’s why I know I have to go that much harder, and concentrate, and do that much more, because I don’t have people taking care of my money or financial tax obligations, or what have you … I’m too busy fighting all your fights, I’m too busy entertaining all the fans.” These comments drew the ire of the native of Quebec who is no stranger to struggle, leading him to lose his cool which doesn’t happen very often. “Let me tell you something, uneducated fool. Listen to me. I have not always been rich. I start from the bottom. I made myself, I work very hard to be where I am right now. I know you don’t believe this, because you didn’t succeed yet, and maybe you will never succeed in your life because I don’t think you’re smart enough to understand how you should do to reach that point,” St-Pierre said. March 16th can’t get here fast enough for UFC fans. St. Pierre has been criticized in the past for having a less than exciting style of fighting although, he’s only lost twice in his career. A chance to see an aggressive, vicious St. Pierre will be a welcome sight to mixed martial arts fans and Dana White.
