According to UFC President Dana White, Georges St-Pierre is likely to fight Nick Diaz next for his welterweight title. There has been loads of recent talk about a super-fight between Anderson Silva and GSP, but it seems that instead the scrap that was scheduled twice already will finally go down in 2013.
White still thinks a bout between St-Pierre and Silva could probably happen next, but again pointed out “Rush” has asked for the Diaz match to be next based on some unfinished personal business between the two.
All signs are pointing towards St-Pierre next defending his UFC welterweight title against Stockton bad boy Nick Diaz at some point in 2013. UFC President Dana White confirmed the news when speaking to reporters after the UFC on Fox 5 press conference ended. White stated that GSP has asked to fight Diaz next, and the UFC will likely oblige his wish.
There has been no mention as to where this leaves Johny Hendricks. If GSP fights Diaz and wins and then fights Silva, the belt could be on the shelf most of 2013.
