UFC Quick Quote: Nick Diaz understands what Georges St. Pierre is going through with knee injury, says GSP isn't scared

Nick Diaz, who actually feels for Georges St. Pierre and what he's going through.

"For me, I'm injured too, I understand. I'm like, 'Hey, I'm injured.' You know, I was injured all those fights, I wasn't 100-percent or anything, so I understand. People put a lot of pressure on him to come out and do better than he did the last time. It's hard enough to come out there and keep himself going the way he's doing. So I can understand what it must be like being injured for real and everybody's like, 'Oh, hey, you're scared.' It's not what it seems."

-- "Where you at, Georges? I don't think he's hurt, I think he's scared." We're a long ways away from the time Nick Diaz said those words in his post-fight interview after smashing B.J. Penn back at UFC 137 on Oct. 29, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now, an uncharacteristically jovial Diaz is telling Kayrn Bryant of MMA Heat that he totally understands what Georges St. Pierre is going through with his knee injury and he doesn't hold it against him. In fact, Diaz actually feels for "Rush's" plight, saying it must be tough to placate a fanbase that is always demanding more and more. It's quite the switch in attitudes for the Stockton slugger. Maybe Bryant just caught him on a good day. Indeed, Diaz was training with women's fighting sensation Ronda Rousey at the time. That would get anyone's spirits up, right? You can watch footage of the two rolling around on the mats after the jump.
