[VIDEO] Countdown to UFC 158: Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz is Actually, Totally Happening, Y’all, For Reals

(In order to ensure that Diaz made all of his scheduled video interviews, the UFC told him that he was in a triathlon that started at his home and ended at the studio.)

We told you to watch it, but you never listen to us. Fine. We’ll bail you out again.

Last night, Countdown to UFC 158 premiered on Fuel TV. And although approximately less than 4% of MMA fans actually get Fuel TV according to our studies, CagePotato readers can now watch the special any time they want, you entitled sons of bitches. There’s a very good chance that the couple years of intrigue, drama, and trash talk between UFC champion Georges St. Pierre and challenger Nick Diaz will end up having been much more competitive than the actual main event that takes place Saturday, but still, the trash talk and drama is pretty dang good so we’re enjoying it to the last drop.

Countdown to UFC 158 has much, much more of all that good stuff for you; Diaz alternately screaming and quietly mumbling, GSP doing back flips, GSP restraining his anger behind a forced calm face, gritted teeth, and adorable French Canadian accent, etc.

For those needing to catch up, Blair Butler (Yeah, we know, but she’s a funny chick who is cute and who writes a pretty dope MMA-themed comic book, so she’s cool with us) and Cesar Gracie aka. Nick Diaz’s hook up re-hash the last year and a half or so of Nicky boy calling out Georges, then blowing those opportunities once he was given them. Doctor BJ Penn even stops by to diagnose Diaz with Social Anxiety Disorder, so join us after the jump for all the hilarity.

Diaz and his coach also talk about his struggles with weed/society’s struggles to accept his need for weed and various other persecution complexes and struggles that the fighter may or may not need in order to fuel his fighting career. Between the lines, fascinating stuff, really.

Tune in this Saturday to see GSP and Diaz finally settle their differences in a fight that will totally go off without a hitch and whose results will definitely not be over turned due to a failed drug test. We promise.

- Elias Cepeda

thanks again cp. seriously.not easy to get this stuff in Scotland on a limited budget. I dont think I have seen a guy since Mirko or Waderlei who could actually land LETHAL shots than Hendricks..I mean c'mon thats some sick shit. I dont think I ve ever seen a smarter fighter than Condit either...since Ali.

Blair witch should stick to comments on AOTS, why was her commentary important to a Countdown ep ?? If it had to be a MMA journo why not Ariel or some one from CP? (now suck mine) weird choice & like alot of'journos' she misses alot of fact for the hype.
Mrtrue - everyone said that about Serra, Diaz has heaps to bring to the table. Regardless it will be worth the PPV

Nick Dias stands no chance against George. GSP is to well rounded. Dias is going to get out classed the same way his brother did when he fought Benson. I think Diaz is an outstanding fighter, but he ain't got nothing for George.

Are you implying GSP is using steroids Elias? Because I can't think of any other reason why there would be a failed drug test.

Knock on wood! It's only Wednesday and I could easily see Nick getting roughed up by some Mounties, cancelling the fight. Nick's no MRuss, after all..

I wish I could see the fight today but it's fun watching Diaz saying silly things and contradicting himself constantly during the build up.
