The elder Diaz has some interesting theories on why things went so wrong for him in his UFC 158 fight against the Canadian legend.

Was Nick Diaz poisoned leading up to his UFC 158 fight with Georges St-Pierre in 2013? Occam’s razor would certainly point to no, but that hasn’t stopped Nick from periodically bringing up the claim. Now the tale is getting new life with the news that the UFC wants GSP to fight Nick’s little brother Nate, something Nate doesn’t sound interested in at all.

TMZ Sports asked Nick what he thought of a potential Nate vs. GSP match up, but things quickly went down the conspiracy hole.

“I think whoever tries to make that fight, I’m gonna have to give him a backhand slap,” Nick declared. “At the end of the day, I fought [St-Pierre], they poisoned my IV with some kind of weird ass drug. It put me to sleep!”

“I have 37 fights, been fighting for 17 years, I never slept more than five or six hours a night,” he continued. “I slept 14 hours, I’m like ‘What did you put in my IV, dude?’ I never had nothing but clear IV. And there was something wrong with his wraps. I know they didn’t test us either because they was filling up all our piss inside little film containers.”

”I was flat on the way out, I was like I’m in the best shape of my life,” he finished. “Everything was strange. No disrespect, I don’t think ol’ Georges did nothing, I think people were trying to pull something.”

But as far as that Nate vs. Georges fight? That’s a hells naw from Nick, who had a message for the UFC:

”At the Nick Diaz Academy, Nick Diaz says who fights who.”
