UFC President Dana White has come forward to claim that former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre is being targeted for a super-fight against UFC megastar Nate Diaz. Now an audio clip of the UFC’s president’s statement has hit the internet.
Georges St-Pierre crafted a legacy within the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s welterweight division, quickly making his way to being one of the promotion’s most dominant champion’s. The French-Canadian phenom would eventually vacate his title after going on a hiatus from the sport.
Nearly four years later, St-Pierre made his big octagon return at UFC 217. The fighter moved up in weight and finished Michael Bisping for the UFC middleweight title, securing St-Pierre’s position as one of the promotion’s most decorated champions.
However, St-Pierre ultimately vacated his title before ever defending the belt. The fighter suffered a debilitating case of colitis, leading to his decision to drop the title.
Meanwhile, Stockton native Nate Diaz has not competed inside the octagon since going on a two fight heated rivalry with none other than Conor McGregor. Appearing on the podcast UFC Unfiltered, UFC President Dana White has come forward to claim that the promotion is now targeting a super fight between Diaz and St-Pierre for UFC 227.
The highly anticipated fight card goes down Aug. 4 inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Check out what all Dana White had to say about the targeted super-fight within the video above.
