Nick Diaz Accuses Georges St-Pierre of Using Steroids, Missing Weight For UFC 158

Nearly three years have gone by since Nick Diaz faced Georges St-Pierre at UFC 158, but the outspoken fighter is repeating his claim that the former champ used PEDs during his reign.

Now, if you’ve followed Diaz over the years, then you know that he accused GSP of using steroids before they fought in 2013. Diaz and his camp were also fired up back then, after an official from the Quebec Commission relayed they would be allowed to come in at just under 171 pounds for the title fight. The bout took place in Montreal.

Well,┬árecently Diaz appeared on Chael Sonnen’s podcast, and he let the accusations fly once more. Here is some of what Diaz had to say (quote via FOX Sports):

“…I’m pretty convinced about everybody is on steroids. I mean everybody,” Diaz said. “Me and my brother, I don’t think Frankie’s (Edgar) on steroids, but these guys, a lot of them they’re on steroids. That stuff messes with chemicals in your head. I’m just talking s–t on everybody right now cause as far as I’m concerned, everybody’s on steroids.

“Georges St-Pierre was on steroids when I fought him.”

“He missed f—ing weight. He f—ing missed weight,” said Diaz, after reportedly claiming that GSP came in three pounds over weight. “He didn’t make weight. How is that not news? That’s why they wanted that fight over there (in Canada). So he could f—ing cheat. I would have knocked that motherf—er out. He was not as good as me…”

So, there you have it. It’s old, yet new headline worthy comments at the same time…

Of course, since they met back in 2013, GSP has become one of the most vocal critics of PEDs in the sport. St-Pierre, who has never failed a drug test, also volunteered to pay for VADA testing out of pocket leading up to his bout with Johny Hendricks.

Could all this talk from Diaz finally prompt GSP to return and call for a rematch?
