Dana White: ‘I have not talked to Conor about the GSP fight’

Georges St-Pierre is finally back. After nearly four years away from the octagon, the French Canadian superstar made his big return at UFC 217. Moving up in weight, the former UFC welterweight champion challenged UFC middleweight champion Michael “The Count” Bisping for his title in the night’s main event.

The two threw down just on Saturday, Nov. 4, for the mixed martial arts promotion’s second ever appearance at the illustrious Madison Square Garden in New York. With a third round submission victory, St-Pierre choked out “The Count” for the UFC middleweight title.

Now St-Pierre is one of only four fighters to ever achieve a UFC title in two different divisions. Fight fans are now looking to see the fighter take on one of the other three competitors holding that record.

UFC lightweight champion and former featherweight champion Conor McGregor is coming off of a TKO loss in his boxing debut. As a result, the fighter is likely headed back to the octagon for his next match up. One possible fight fans have been looking for is a match up between “Notorious” and the newly crowned UFC middleweight champion. However, it would appear that UFC President Dana White has no plans to book such a super-fight.

Speaking to reporters after UFC 217, White explained that St-Pierre is contractually obligated to unify his title in a fight against interim champion Robert Whittaker for his next octagon performance. The UFC president also explained that there are no plans to book a fight with the French Canadian and Conor McGregor.

When asked if there have been any talks of a super-fight between the fighters, Dana White said “We’ve never even considered, talked about or anything with Conor.”
