Georges St-Pierre Reacts To Nate Diaz Fighting Jorge Masvidal At UFC 244
Georges St-Pierre is pumped to see the monster main-event between Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244.
The UFC legend said he doesn't watch many fights anymore but he's excited for the showdown slated for the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York.
"I don't watch fights as much as I did before, but this is going to be one that I'm going to tune into," he said about Diaz vs. Masvidal which got announced during UFC 242 fight week.
"What makes it interesting is the character of these fighters."
Who is the BMF!?

Diaz returned to the UFC after a three-year layoff by beating Anthony Pettis in August. He called out Masvidal and the UFC swiftly matched the two 'baddest motherf**kers' in the game for UFC 244 in November.
St-Pierre also touched on Nate's older brother Nick who fought the Canadian superstar back in 2013.
He said it's sad to see him "waste his best years" in an honest assessment about his MMA career.
"I think just it's sad to see a guy like him waste his best years," the ex-UFC welterweight and middleweight champion said. "I think he could have been champion, especially when Woodley was there. Stylistically it would have been a nightmare for a guy like Tyron Woodley.
"He's one of the best fighters that I fought. Who knows, maybe his best years are to come."
Nick Diaz won titles in WEC and Strikeforce but failed to bag gold in the UFC. He's lost his last three fights against Carlos Condit, St-Pierre and Anderson Silva, though his bout against the Brazilian was overturned to a No-Contest after both fighters tested positive.
'GSP', meanwhile, retired earlier in the year after failing to land a mega-fight versus Khabib Nurmagomedov.
But the UFC lightweight king still wants a piece of him. After defending his title against Dustin Poirier, he proposed a charity match in Africa.
