Dana White: Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz Will Not Coach TUF 14

via assets.sbnation.com

Dana White did an interview with HeavyMMA.com's Megan Olivi yesterday, and managed to pack a lot of info into a short amount of time. Earlier today, Mike Fagan covered the tail end of the interview that dealt with Dana's reaction to the Chael Sonnen saga. The beginning of the interview covers some pretty big news as well though - namely, Dana White is very firm about the fact that Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is not close to happening, and they won't be on a certain reality show anytime soon:

Dana: "That fight is not a done deal, and I guarantee you that those two will not be coaches (on TUF 14). Not even close. All the stuff that's out there about that fight and the meeting we had here is all bulls--t."

Olivi: "Fair enough. So we won't be seeing that fight at UFC 140 in Montreal?"

Dana: "No."

The next topic of note was when we should expect to see Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard (who just had minor knee surgery) step back into the cage again after their UFC 130 fight was postponed due to injuries:

"It's gonna depend on how fast these guys heal, when they're ready to go. But yeah, I mean, it's a great fight, I wanna see that fight again, they want it bad. I mean, Gray Maynard was very emotional when that fight go pulled...so...ASAP."

After saying Anthony Pettis was definitely still in line for a title shot if he defeats Clay Guida, he gets onto the topic of interim titles:

"The only time we do an interim title is when we're unsure how long a guy's gonna be out and the guy that we don't want to strip, you know, he's got something unfortunate that happens to him.  You know, we don't just throw interim titles out there just because somebody broke their hand or something."

He also discusses Rashad Evans and Jon Jones before he gets to Chael.  You can watch the full video after the jump.
