Former UFC welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz has accused Canadian semi-retired mixed martial artist Georges St-Pierre of being on anabolic androgenic steroids. Diaz said GSP missed weight by three pounds in their highly anticipated title fight back in March 16, 2013 at UFC 158 in GSP's hometown of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Diaz said on Chael Sonnen's podcast You're Welcome that Georges St-Pierre was on steroids when he fought him. Diaz added he is convinced the athletic commission of Quebec did not properly fighters at the UFC 158 as Georges St-Pierre, a three-time former Welterweight Champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, would have failed the test. Diaz commented they didn't test us because he would have tested positive for sure. The former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion and a former WEC Welterweight Champion added that dude needs to come back and give him another fight as far as he is concerned.
Nick Diaz went on to comment that Georges St-Pierre did not made the 170-pound weight limit for welterweight title fights. The professional mixed martial arts fighter remarked GSP missed weight and that was the reason they wanted that fight in Canada and said he deserves another fight just by default on account of him being three pounds over. Diaz added the fight happened in Canada and GSP was their beloved and he believes GSP could have been seven pounds over.
Diaz made a comeback almost two years later following UFC 158 and had a super fight with Anderson Silva where he tested positive for marijuana. The American mixed martial artist who is currently signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship has a history of testing positive for Marijuana in his career.
In reply to Diaz's allegations, a statement was released by Quebec's athletic commission in which it was said that all drug tests came back clean. The commission however did not specify the names of the six fighters they tested out of the 24 fighters that competed at UFC 158. The Regie des alcools des courses et des jeux, Quebec's regulatory board governing combat sports, said there were no drug test failures coming out of the March 16 show in Montreal.
Georges St-Pierre retained the UFC welterweight title in a five-round decision over Nick Diaz at UFC 158 that took place on March 16 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The Diaz camp, through attorney Jonathan Tweedale, had complained of failure of the commission to supervise GSP according to protocol when he gave his test sample.
Born in California, Nick is the older brother of UFC fighter Nate Diaz and participated in wrestling tournaments during his teenage years. At the age of 16, Nick started training in Sambounder Bulgarian National Sambo Champion Valeri Ignatov with whom he still trains. In 2001, Nick became a professional mixed martial arts fighter and won his first fight where he submitted Mike Wick with a triangle choke at IFC Warriors Challenge 15. He went on to become a champion in just his second professional fight when he defeated Chris Lytle for the IFC Welterweight Championship in July 2002 at IFC Warriors Challenge 17.
