UFC 158's Nick Diaz calls George St. Pierre 'crazy' for declining Anderson Silva super fight

Looks like what drives me crazy don't have no effect on you. But, I'm gonna keep on at it until it drives you crazy, too.

Timing isn't everything to Nick Diaz.

It's no secret that the current No. 1 Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight contender has clamored for a "super fight" against Middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Diaz expressed his interest right around the same time 170-pound champion, Georges St. Pierre, avoided the conversation altogether.

In fact, his camp was willing to do it just for fun -- no title on the line -- and the "Spider" response was positive. However, company president Dana White said that it didn't fucking "make sense."

So the mixed martial arts (MMA) band played on. And Diaz now finds himself readying to fight St. Pierre, while Silva is still waiting until the last possible moment to agree to a fight with Chris Weidman, a worthy opponent who apparently lacks the prestige and starpower that a name like St. Pierre, Diaz -- or even Cung Le (more on that here) -- commands.

Diaz doesn't get it:

"I will tell you right now that I want to fight the No. 1 fighter in the world. I've always said that … I want to fight No. 1. Georges never said that. That's the only thing I have said negative about Georges is that if I were in his place. I would be asking for the Anderson Silva fight. I wouldn't that blow away … that's crazy."

Look who's talking, right?

This coming from a guy who blew away a title shot with "Rush" at UFC 137 back in 2011 because he refused to play the promotional game. And the same guy who nearly repeated history for allegedly blowing off similar obligations prior to his fight with St. Pierre at UFC 158 on March 16, 2013.

Now that sounds crazy.
