Back in 2013 Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz capped off their rivalry with a meeting inside the Octagon in GSP's backyard of Toronto.
St-Pierre and Diaz went all five rounds, but in the end it was Rush who took hope a lopsided decision victory. Years later, Diaz seems to have some issues with how everything played out in the bout.
Recently, Diaz revealed in an interview that shortly before the fight he felt sleepy after taking an IV. He speculated that someone put something in his IV, as he slept a lot more than usual the night before the fight.
He also claimed that St-Pierre missed weight before the fight, and the athletic commission allowed him to fight anyway.
This caused a ton of discussion within the mixed martial arts (MMA) community, and it turns out St-Pierre caught wind of Diaz's accusations.
Rush was recently a guest on the voice of the UFC's podcast, Joe Rogan, where they discussed several different topics. He commented on Diaz's recent accusations and had a brilliant response to the former UFC middleweight and welterweight.
St-Pierre jokingly 'admitted' to everything Diaz accused him of before elaborating on how ridiculous these accusations are (quotes via MMA Fighting):
“They said that I took steroids when I fought [Nick], I messed up my wraps, I didn’t make weight, and I put something in his IV. . .” St-Pierre said.
“I gotta confess, Joe. I gotta confess. I was so scared of fighting Nick Diaz so we poisoned his IV. But he survived so I was even more terrified, so all the athletic commission was on my payroll so they tricked the weigh-in and I made it.
"But he went through [with the fight] so I was even more terrified, so the alien abducted me and put the gamma rays to increase my strength like the Hulk, like a performance enhancing drug.
"But the fight was still happening so right before I put some glass and cement in my gloves to make sure, and I still had a crazy hard fight. [Laughs].
“It’s completely insane. . . I think he has a problem of conspiration (sic),” St-Pierre said.
“He thinks everybody is against him. . . I think that’s what it is.
"I don’t know if it’s the weed but maybe weed with the social environment and genetics can create some kind of disorder in the brain and make you have conspiracy problems.
"You think everybody is against you. I’ve seen a lot of my friends who smoke a lot have this problem. Sometimes they’re paranoid.”
