He's seen it all before...
Georges St-Pierre recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his heated exchange with Nick Diaz on the conference call last week to promote UFC 158 and more. Check out the highlights:
On Diaz's trash talk: "It's not my fault. It's just that they don't have a lot of pay-per-view buys. I sell a lot of pay-per-views, and they want to have the money. They talk their way into the fight. They win, and they try to get that fight. They talk, and then there's a big story about it."
On the fight being for the fans: "This is the fight that everyone wants to see. All the fans want to see it. It's a fight that he wants. It's a fight that I want, and I think it's going to make the best version of me come out for the fight."
On the fight: "All fights are very, very important. It's a very, very tough fight for me. But they're all very important. I believe everybody I fight has great things about them. They're the best in the world at what they do. I think the same thing here, but I don't care what Diaz is going to try to do to me. I care about I'm going to try to do to him. That's what's going to happen on March 16."
On how he would like the fight to go: "The perfect scenario would be 'GSP' victory via flying armbar 10 seconds into the fight. [Laughs] That would be awesome."
On saying that he wanted to put a beating on Diaz: "I want to hurt all the guys that I fight. The goal is to win by knockout or submission."
