After over a decade, Nick Diaz and Georges St-Pierre are seemingly getting aligned for a rematch at UFC 300 in April. Dana White and no official administrator have disclosed the plans. However, social media is buzzing with Diaz vs GSP 2 talks, which now have also caught the fans’ attention.
Nick Diaz had his last win in 2011. He went on to lose his next four fights, one of which was called a No-Contest. Aged 40, Diaz is far away from the fight game and doesn’t seem to be touching his peak again. He is undoubtedly one of the most decorated combat athletes of all time. But Nick Diaz may not need to fight any longer. The same goes for 42-year-old Georges St-Pierre who hasn’t fought for over six years now.
A social media page posted a fan-art poster for Diaz vs GSP 2, sending several fans into a frenzy. Here’s how the MMA community reacted to the post.
UFC 300 is expected to be a massive show with several title fights on board. As of now, Dana White has announced the main-events up until UFC 299 in February. There are also rumors that Conor McGregor is possibly aiming to make his UFC return in April. Amidst so much to happen, it doesn’t appear that GSP or Nick Diaz will enter the cage anytime soon.
Both men are retired and have shown no emotions of fighting professionally. While many MMA fans don’t want to see it happen, there are many who are willing to get another view on a Nick Diaz fight or a GSP fight.
