Current UFC welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St. Pierre, sat down to discuss Nick Diaz’ impending verdict regarding his positive drug test for marijuana, and how GSP doesn’t think that it’s a performance enhancer. He also talks about his time spent in Japan, and how it’s a country of “extremes,” being that they are very respectful, but if they do something, they do it all the way.

“I was not surprised [that Nick Diaz tested positive], because I had heard some stories before that he took marijuana, but for me, I don’t think it’s a performance enhancer. I don’t see it as bad as if it was a steroid or something like that.”

“Maybe it could help Nick Diaz, because I think he has problems in front of the camera. He’s very nervous in front of the camera, maybe the marijuana calms him down and makes him perform better.”
