Firas Zahabi: GSP vs Nick Diaz May Be Next
GSP vs Nick Diaz might be next? What about the Silva vs GSP Superfight?
After last Saturday’s UFC 129 event, Firas Zahabi – George St-Pierre’s trainer – announced that the fighter’s left eye will be okay. He even believes that a champion vs champion match may be in GSP’s future, as UFC welterweight champion may face Strikeforce’s Nick Diaz next.
“We haven’t sat down to talk about (what’s next). I’m sure the UFC is going to want Nick Diaz. He deserves a shot. He’s put on great performances and his last fight was extremely exciting.”
However, there are talks already coming out that GSP might move up to middleweight and challenge Anderson Silva, should he beat Jake Shields. Firas Zahabi, on the other hand, said that it wouldn’t be that fast for George St-Pierre to move up — though he wouldn’t rule it out.
UFC President, Dana White, said that the GSP vs Diaz bout is something that he can execute, despite the latter’s contract with Strikeforce. He even stated his plan of talking to the Strikeforce champ for the bout’s possibilities.
