"Let me get in there with that guy. They had him in there with my partner and look what happened to him, you know what I mean? What do you think is going to happen to him if they put him in there with me? I think I'll put my punches in, I think he's going to try to force takedowns and go for takedowns. But I saw him out there and he doesn't look... he's not much for size. I don't know if [fighting me is] the smartest plan for him either. I feel like it will be real hard for him. I feel like I'm ready for that fight. I just feel I'm even more ready for it now. I want to get this show on the road, like I said, I'm not getting any younger. I don't know, I'd like to start getting paid up here, I'd like to get that fight or I'd like to make something happen here, something different, something big. I'm tired of this same thing over and over again, it's getting old. This is getting old for me and that's just how I feel. I just want more competition. If you're going to force me to fight these guys that don't have it in them to beat me, that are going to come out and go for a lucky shot to take my head off, a lot of times I eat those punches. I don't need that. I don't need a guy who's going to do that. I'm looking to fight a guy like Georges, who's going in there trying to win the fight not by just getting lucky, you know what I mean? I'm trying to go on to bigger and better things, I don't want to just keep fighting these chumps. If they want to keep having me fight these chumps I'm not afraid to do that but I'm not going to go ahead and step in there fighting these guys unless they're willing to pay me a lot more money."
Nick Diaz says he's ready to take on the UFC's welterweight champ and is tired of fighting the chumps Strikeforce is putting in the cage with him. Do you think the champ from the 209 needs to fight a top contender like Fitch or Koscheck before putting him in there with GSP? Or just throw him in there with the champ. What would your dream match up for the strikeforce champ?
