At present, Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is akin to Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans and MMA’s equivalent to boxing's Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, in the sense that anyone even with slightest interest in the aforementioned fighters wants to see it happen.
Diaz, the Stockton native, lit the fuse when he called out St-Pierre following his unanimous decision win over B.J. Penn. “Rush” took the bait and now all that’s left to cement this fight is a victory for Diaz against Carlos Condit at UFC 143—that and the health of both combatants leading up to the bout.
That said, let’s take a look at the reasons we really want to see a St-Pierre vs. Diaz throwdown.
