Nick Diaz is getting reckless with his accusations against Georges St-Pierre. The two will meet Saturday at UFC 158 in Montreal, and now there is something fresh on everyone’s minds — accusations from Diaz (pictured) that his opponent is using “plenty of steroids.” Diaz hinted during the pre-UFC 158 press conference Thursday that GSP is on steroids. That caused an angry St-Pierre to respond. “I’m not on steroids, man,” said St-Pierre. “I never cheated once in my life.” “We’ll see if they test who for steroids or what,” Diaz responded. “I hope they do. I hope they do,” GSP shot back. “You hope they do? What, for me to test positive for steroids?” asked Diaz. “Ain’t gonna happen.” Later in the day, Diaz did a radio interview with “Tim and Sid” on 590 The Fan in Toronto and continued his accusations. “I believe that he’s on plenty of steroids and I don’t think they test around here either,” Diaz told the hosts. “I don’t care what they’re saying or marketing to the media. I don’t think either of us are going to be tested. And if so, he’s probably got a bottle of piss in his pocket. I doubt they’re standing over him, making sure he’s not on steroids.” When it was pointed out to Diaz that he was suggesting UFC president Dana White is complicit with GSP being on steroids, Diaz cited Lance Armstrong as an example of a sport allowing its leading athlete to cheat. “Sure, why not? Lance Armstrong is on steroids, and it was really a ridiculous thing that he was on steroids, as far as he was concerned,” said Diaz. Diaz also would not guarantee that he would pass all his drug tests. He has failed two drug tests in the past because of marijuana found in his system, and he received a one-year suspension as a result. He said he wouldn’t mind it if he did test positive again because the time off from fighting wouldn’t be so bad. Diaz is not the first fighter to accuse St-Pierre of cheating. BJ Penn has accused GSP of greasing and, in 2009, accused him of being on steroids. There is plenty of built-up anger between both men entering Saturday’s fight, which should make it a fantastic contest.
