Chael Sonnen recently had Nate Diaz on his podcast, and one of the topics brought up was Georges St-Pierre being in attendance at UFC 196, and the rumors of him calling out Conor McGregor had he won the contest. Diaz of course ended up with the victory despite coming in on very short notice, and he spoke about spoiling those plans.

“Oh yeah, I f*cked that show up. I put a big ass halt on that shit,” Diaz said, prompting Sonnen to burst out laughing. “What did you guys think, I’m some f*cking game to be played with? I’ve been on this game for too long to be f*cked with!”

“When I left the next day, I knew what was going on. They had GSP there, and want to have this big ‘GSP-McGregor show’ bullshit, I don’t want to even to hear about that.”

“GSP is going to come out of f*cking retirement to fight this little ass Conor McGregor? What the f*ck? This is all just a freakshow now!”

“So now what did I do,” Diaz said about winning the short notice fight. “Now I pissed off Conor McGregor, I pissed off GSP, and most of all, I pissed off the UFC… but LOL, motherf*ckers!”

“He thought he would come back and make this big old ‘Congratulations, Georges St-Pierre is coming back’ show, but get the f*ck out of here,” he said. “You think this kid was coming to beat me. I spoiled your shit. That’s what you get, motherf*cker, for trying to steal the show and make this about you. I spoiled everybody’s (plans).”

Despite this being the first ever UFC event he attended after leaving MMA, St-Pierre said that he simply wanted to attend a card and have fun with his friends. Diaz doesn’t really buy it.

“Georges is full of shit, they’re all full of shit,” Diaz said about St-Pierre playing coy. “He was like ‘that’s not what I was there for!'”

“I want to be the first one to speak up. You’re a f*cking bully! You know you’re going to hold that little ass Irishman down! You’re going to hop in and take this money fight, coming back… like what the f*ck? Get your ass (someone) on your weight class!” he said. “McGregor is out of line too, trying to fight big ass people.”

“If McGregor would’ve won and they put that fight against GSP, everyone would’ve been saying it’s the greatest fight of all time. But it’s not… It’s ridiculous. It’s a freakshow.”

“I’d take it because definitely that’s going to sell tickets, but Georges, you’re not some super f*cking human badass for coming back fighting a rookie ass 20-fight Conor McGregor,” he said. “You’ve got all these fights in the UFC, come back and fight on something competitive.”

“It was just a good business move for everybody’s part.”

The UFC decided to rematch Diaz and McGregor at UFC 200, and for those with tinfoil hats on, this could be the chance to finally ‘get it right’.
