11:49 AM ET 03.08 | During a UFC 158 conference call Thursday, Nick Diaz admitted he won't be done if he ends up with the middleweight title against Georges St-Pierre next weekend. "If I had that option available to me, I would be honored to be in that position, and I would be gratefully accepting of that position or fight, if you will, with the 185-pound champion or the 155-pound champion. I would take either fight, and I think I could beat either guy to win a title at both weights. I'd like to be runner-up in the pound-for-pound rankings. That's the No. 1 goal, aside from the No. 1 ranking in the welterweight division," Diaz said.

Now if he ends up with the middleweight title after fighting GSP that will be a story. Pretty sure he is fighting for the welterweight title.
