GSP Trainer Firas Zahabi Says Nick Diaz is #1 Welterweight Contender
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.28.2012



- GSP Trainer Firas Zahabi recently spoke about Nick Diaz and the state of the Welterweight division. Here are the highlights…

On Nick Diaz: "I think Diaz is the guy who deserves it most," Zahabi said. "His fight with Carlos (Condit) was so close. Who knows? People judge it both ways. [Diaz is] the guy who is the Strikeforce champion. He climbed up the ladder all the way. Johny deserves it very much, but Diaz has been there longer and done more fights and has bigger wins. If you want to be really fair about it, he is the guy who beat the most amount of names in the biggest fights."

On The Fight With Anderson SIlva: "There will be plenty of time to discuss it," Zahabi said. "Everybody wants to know, and that's normal. But at the end of the day, he needs to enjoy himself. I'm sure we'll all get on the phone sooner or later."

On The Welterweight Division: "After he beat B.J., people were like, 'The division has been cleared out,'" he said. "But then it always seems to be the same thing. Some other guy gets a big win, and the division is not cleaned out. You just saw the same thing. Hendricks got a big win, and it's like there's still Hendricks on the table and still Diaz on the table. (Jon) Fitch just beat Erick Silva, so that name is back in the mix."
