Dana White Confirms Mega Co-Main Event Target For UFC 227

Dana White Confirms Mega Co-Main Event Target For UFC 227

With GSP, it hasn't been clear if and when he will fight again, as a result of his issues with ulcerative colitis. The fight would be a big drop in weight for St-Pierre and would require some persuasion from White towards both fighters, according to MMA journalist Ariel Helwani. He won the middleweight belt from Michael Bisping last November and vacated it hardly a month later, citing digestive issues stemming from the increased food intake he required to bulk up to 185. Who do you think will come out on top?

But there's one more fun little detail in here. "But we are working right now to try to put together a Georges St-Pierre versus Nate Diaz fight".

"It would be St-Pierre's first fight at lightweight". However, he also holds a victory over the former lightweight champion.

Buzz about Diaz's next fight spiked a little while back, after the Stockton star put other fighters on notice, by saying he'd "see" them this summer. If I fail to give them three fights a year, then I have to pay them.

Nate Diaz, who has been absent from the UFC since losing a majority decision to Conor McGregor almost two years ago, appears closer than ever to making his Octagon return, and it could be against a foe very familiar to the Diaz clan. That, I can not deny, would possibly be the biggest fight in UFC history if it involved McGregor, although his oft-discussed match with Khabib might be that fight. St-Pierre went on to defeat him by unanimous decision in 2013 at UFC 158.

GSP vs Diaz would be a bit tasty, now we just have to hope is happens.

If it did, the next year could be a whirlwind of huge matches at 155 pounds the likes of which we've never seen.

St. -Pierre has had plenty of history with the Diaz family after a long feud with Nick at welterweight. This potential super-fight would be an entirely different beast, though.

The UFC President also says if the four big fights that are planned for UFC 227 come together, it would make for a flawless world scenario. A fight against Nate will afford the younger Diaz brother an opportunity to avenge that loss.
