Nick Diaz has earned himself a title shot at Georges St-Pierre, but not without some controversy. 

Following his dominant win over BJ Penn at UFC 137, a visibly emotional Diaz called out the UFC welterweight champion during his post-fight interview. Diaz's trash talk did not sit well with St-Pierre and he immediately expressed his interest in facing the former Strikeforce welterweight champion. 

"Georges St-Pierre flipped out tonight after Nick Diaz was in the ring," White told reporters during UFC 137 press conference. 

Diaz's tirade infuriated the champion so much that White said St-Pierre privately spoke to him following the event and considered his actions to be disrespectful. 

"He said, and I quote, 'Nick Diaz is the most disrespectful human being I have ever met and I am going to put the worst beating you've seen on him in the UFC,'" he said. 

White revealed that St-Pierre's original opponent, Carlos Condit, has agreed to sit and wait and let Diaz step in to challenge the French-Canadian. 

St-Pierre was originally scheduled to face Diaz at UFC 137 until the Stockton native unexpectedly no-showed two press conferences, leaving the champion to promote the event by himself. As a result, Diaz was pulled from the main event and was put in the co-main event against Penn instead. 

While the date is unconfirmed, the UFC boss told reporters that the title bout would likely commence in February next year on Super Bowl weekend.
