Dana White Confirms Rumors of Georges St-Pierre vs. Nate Diaz

Dana White Confirms Rumors of Georges St-Pierre vs. Nate Diaz”

Dana White has recently confirmed that he's working to book the Stockton native to fight at UFC 227 this summer, but they will not be completing the trilogy fight against McGregor, but it's still going to be an awesome fight which UFC fans will enjoy.

We don't know when Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz will grace the octagon again.

In addition to the potential "super-fight", White also verified the rumour of a potential Alexander Gustafsson - Luke Rockhold bout for UFC 227.

And while another fight with Conor may still happen someday, it looks like the UFC has finally figured out an opponent that could move the needle alongside Nate: Georges St-Pierre.

"It is true and they (Diaz/GSP) would fight at 155-pounds", White said.

The former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion returned to competition in November after four years away from the sport to win the middleweight title with a submission victory in the third round over Michael Bisping at UFC 217. However, he later had to vacate the title.

"There are rumours, what did I see?"

UFC 227 will take place on August 4 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California. That we were doing Gustafsson and Rockhold, that is true, but that's not for the interim title, that's false. "I'm targeting L.A.", White stated. The main card will air on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET while the preliminary card will air on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET and the promotion's streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.

White added that in "a ideal world", Nate and St-Pierre would co-main the L.A. card, which is headlined by a title rematch between bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. Though a lot of the fights are still yet to be signed, White revealed that the UFC are planning a massive fight card that would see St-Pierre vs Diaz occupy the co-main event slot.
