DANA WHITE – MCGREGOR VS. GSP IS INTRIGUING

Georges St Pierre was a pay-per-view star during the height of his career from 2008 to 2013. However, Conor McGregor proudly holds that title now.


The Irishman is the current UFC flagship star and he can easily pull in impressive figures in pay-per-view, especially with the Floyd Mayweather fight increasing his popularity.

Fans have been speculating a fight between both MMA fighters as GSP returns to the Octagon. If GSP successfully proves his mettle against Michael Bisping at UFC 217, then the clamour for the fight against McGregor would surely push up.

Former UFC Featherweight champ and reigning UFC Lightweight champ McGregor would face Tony Ferguson next as he defends the title. The fight should happen late this year or early next year. If McGregor sees of his challenger and GSP his, the pair would have to consider a super fight for the sake of the fans.

The UFC president Dana White seems open to both fighters clashing. He expects the duo to settle their current engagements before anything concrete can happen.

“GSP would need to defend his title first at 185 {pounds] and Conor has some business to handle himself. Everybody’s intriguing for Conor McGregor. I mean, if you look at Conor McGregor at 145, 155 and 170 [pounds], everything is intriguing,” White said recently.

GSP earlier said he was open to a fight if the fans and McGregor himself want it. He says he would rather focus on Bisping for now as he seeks to become a two division champ. He is challenging Bisping for the 185 pounds division on November 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Thereafter, a super clash with a willing McGregor could be on the table.
