Dana White says that Nick Diaz attempted to track Georges St. Pierre down in a hotel, leading to GSP's overwhelming dislike for Diaz.


It'd be a lie to say that everyone in the MMA community has been on board with Nick Diaz getting a shot at Georges St. Pierre's UFC welterweight title. The fact that Diaz is coming off a loss and a suspension for a drug test failure -- albeit for marijuana metabolites -- has forced the UFC into a different kind of "sell" for the fight. And that sell has relied on the idea that GSP hates Diaz to his core.

Dana White was on Jim Rome's radio show and told a new story of where the hate stems from (transcribed by Bleacher Report):

"Nobody has talked about this, I haven't said anything about it, but at one of the fights, the one where he really starts calling Georges out, he was chasing Georges around the hotel and like yelling at him and stuff. Georges thought he was going to try to fight him in the hotel. He was just waiting for the elevator doors to open and see Nick Diaz,"

...

"Like at the last fight where he said all that stuff after his last fight when he said all that stuff about Georges, he was really messing with Georges bad at the fight, like trying to fight him at the hotel. That really pissed Georges off."

White also said that GSP hates bullies -- and he thinks Diaz is a bully. And he intends on beating him so badly that it retires him.

Georges' dark place indeed.
