Oh, that adrenaline can be a funny thing, huh?

Moments after winning a unanimous decision against BJ Penn at UFC 137 on Saturday night, a fight that included a 10-8 round in his favor, Nick Diaz seemed to forget about the past few months.

"Where you at, Georges?" Diaz said. He repeated that phrase again, this time exchanging the "Georges" for a phrase slightly less friendly and quite a bit less printable.

Diaz called out UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who was supposed to fight Carlos Condit at UFC 137 but pulled out last week with a knee injury.

Of course, Diaz was originally scheduled to fght St-Pierre but was pulled from that fight in September after missing two press conferences. Perhaps Diaz forgot that part.

"I don't think he's hurt," Diaz said during his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan. "I think he's just scared to fight everyone."

St-Pierre reacted just as he should. He shook his head, laughed it off and then looked at the camera and shook his hands like he was pretending to be scared.

As for Diaz, he just picked apart Penn with his boxing. If he wants to wonder where St-Pierre is at, now he knows how everyone else felt in September. Twice!
