Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz: The History of Their Heated Rivalry

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterDecember 24, 2012

It's Christmas Eve, and you know what that means. 

It's time to eat a whole bunch of food, drink a few adult beverages and lapse into a mini-coma tonight around 9 p.m. while waiting impatiently for Santa to arrive. Or at least that's what I'll be doing.

What's that? Santa Claus isn't real? I don't accept that.

In addition to eating food, drinking beverages and waiting for the fat guy in the red suit to show up, it's also a time when we sit back and think more about the awesome year we've had in mixed martial arts.

Unfortunately, it was a year that did not include Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz, but we can all be thankful that it's finally going to happen next year (even though Diaz doesn't really deserve a title shot at the moment, but let's take what we can get). 

In my Christmas Eve video, I'm taking a look at the timeline of the simmering feud between two of the top welterweights in the world. Take a look, and leave me your thoughts on the fight (or your plans for Christmas Eve, if you want) in the comments below.
