"The wrestlers have the big advantage in this sport," Hughes said of St-Pierre's UFC 158 fight against Diaz. "If GSP's going to stand, he's going to stand. If he's going to go to the ground, he's going to go to the ground. So I think that's going to be great for GSP to be able to control the fight – no doubt about it. I think Diaz is OK in the wrestling game, but you can't compare it to GSP."
While it's true that St-Pierre has the wrestling advantage over Diaz, "Rush" is at a disadvantage in the social media department.
"I don't mind if I have a camera crew sitting in the back of my car, I could give a shit. I just don't like what I'm not ready for, I just want to know about it," Diaz said. "You got Georges, you got someone over there powdering his nose out and they are going to send him off for a video shoot. He's got someone making a twitter for him. Now he don't even know how to talk and don't even know how to act right. He's got people living his life for him out in the public. I just like to keep it real so I don't have to put on no image."
St-Pierre may have the support of the Montreal crowd, but Diaz has a point when he says he's keeping it real.
"I'm not in his shoes so I don't know," Diaz said of St-Pierre. "But, I just like to keep it real and be me. It's really hard to do. You walk around everywhere and everybody knows who I am and it's embarrassing to you know? When you're not looking the way you want to look and coming off the way you want to come off but everybody on every street corner knows who you are. You can't get away from it. It's the same thing with the video cameras. I'm happy for it when I'm ready for it but. My life's a mess, I'm not afraid to admit it. I work hard regardless through this shit. But, I don't have people toweling me off and handing me water bottles and getting my training for me and getting my shit ready. I gotta do all that shit on my own. I don't have people tweeting for me or taking care of my money, taxes,financials and all the shit people don't like to talk about. I'm pretty fucked there because I am too busy fighting all your fights and I'm too busy entertaining all the fans. I don't' see anyone else bringing shit to the table."
St-Pierre and Diaz square off in the main event of UFC 158, live from Montreal, Canada.
