The rumor mill has been hot lately, and now UFC president Dana White has verified that at least two of the recent rumors regarding big fights are indeed true.
Taking to the UFC’s official, UFC Unfiltered Podcast, Dana White confirmed that the rumors of Nate Diaz vs. GSP are true, but that GSP would move down to lightweight to face Nate at his natural weight class.
The UFC boss also confirmed that Rockhold vs. Gustafsson is in the works, but not for the interim world title.
The UFC boss stated:
“It is true and they would fight at 155-pounds,” White said regarding St-Pierre vs Diaz.
“There are rumours, what did I see? That we were doing Gustafsson and Rockhold, that is true, but that’s not for the interim title, that’s false. It might be LA, I’m targeting LA.”
