‘I hate fighting as well’
Georges St-Pierre may be related to Nick Diaz who does not like to fight: “I hate fights too”
Former UFC middleweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre may be related to Nick Diaz who does not enjoy fighting and says he also hated the fight.
Diaz returns to the Octagon on Saturday after six years of dismissal against former UFC champion Robbie Lawler. In a recent interview with ESPN, Diaz said that there is nothing in the fight that he likes.
St-Pierre, who was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on Thursday, understood Diaz’s feelings.
“I can relate to that. I also hate the fight. “I hate it,” St-Pierre said during a scrum interview at his UFC Hall of Fame induction ceremony. “I did it because I used it as a reference point to lead me where I wanted to go in life. I do not like to fight. “It’s the worst day of my life, the day I fight, but I used it to get me into life because I love freedom, health, ability, wealth, access to things that other people do not have.”
“There are many good advantages, but you have to pay the price a few times a year if you want to become a fighter among the elites,” added Saint-Pierre.

St-Pierre beats Diaz. Asked what he thinks Diaz will look like on his return, St-Pierre hopes Diaz is as good or better than ever.
“He is a big factor X. Will he return as well as he was, or did this dismissal have a negative impact on him? I do not know, “said St-Pierre. “I hope he returns as well as he was because I’m afraid he left a lot of money on the table. I hope I make a mistake and I hope he returns even better than he was and goes for the title “.
