Another matchup no one ever asked for??? cool

UFC 227 is on the cusp of becoming a summer blockbuster, and Dana White is hoping for his “perfect world” scenario for the August event in Los Angeles.

The UFC president today revealed a lightweight fight between former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC) and Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) is in the works for UFC 227. The matchup was reported by MMA journalist Mike Russell over the weekend, but TSN reports no bout agreements have been signed.

That’s the fight White wants next for St-Pierre and Diaz, though, he said on the “UFC Unfiltered” podcast. And the news didn’t stop there.

White also revealed UFC 227 could land a light heavyweight bout between Alexander Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) and former 185-pound champ Luke Rockhold (16-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC), though no interim belt would be on the line as rumored.

“It is true, and (St-Pierre and Diaz) would fight at 155 pounds,” White told hosts Matt Serra and Jim Norton. “There are rumors that we were doing Gustafsson versus Rockhold. That is true, but that is not for the interim title. That’s false. It might be L.A. I’m targeting L.A. In my perfect world, if everything goes perfect, which nothing goes (expletive) perfect in this world: (T.J.) Dillashaw versus (Cody) Garbrandt, GSP versus Diaz would be the co-main, Gustafsson versus Rockhold, and Derek Brunson versus Antonio Carlos Junior.”

UFC 227 takes place Aug. 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Jon Anik: Nate Diaz a top-five UFC pay-per-view draw without Conor McGregor

Early this month it was reported that UFC was in “serious negotiations” with Diaz, who hasn’t fought since his majority-decision loss to Conor McGregor in their rematch at UFC 202 in August 2016. St-Pierre, meanwhile, has been sidelined with a medical ailment since beating Michael Bisping at UFC 217 in November.

White has had great difficulty getting Diaz back in the octagon since his fight with McGregor. White seems optimistic the matchup with St-Pierre will be the one to do the trick, but White said there are still some obstacles in the way.

“We’ve been offering Nate Diaz fights for however long,” White said. “In his contract, and Nick Diaz, I have to give them three fights a year. Per the contract, I need to give them three fights a year. If I fail to give them three fights a year then I have to pay them. I have honored my contract with those guys. They turn down the fights, and it extends their contracts. But we are working right now to try to put together a Georges St-Pierre versus Nate Diaz fight.”


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Another wtf matchup that no one asked for. Should look identical to nick vs gsp. Maybe I'm just another cynical as fuck mma fan at this point, so I'm sure I sound like pbells right mwo, but I'm not excited whatsoever by this matchup. Gsp vs Woodley, sign me up. Gsp vs askren fuxk yeah let's do it.

Nate though? Come the fuck on. I could think of 5 different matchups for either opponent I'd like to see more than this. Wtf.

Help me see this in a different light youJews, is this really as gay as it appears?

Was coming to say something similar, fuck this noise.
So hard to believe they'd take gsp and put him in any fight that's not a headliner OR a title shot.
So my theory is if this fight really happens it'll be for the interim lightweight championship and winner fights a returning McGregor for the undisputed lw title because for some reason they've stripped Khabib and blame Ramadan.
That way GSP gets a shot at "history" by becoming a three div champ and potentially sets up a fight between the two male PPV "goats" of the smaller weight classes.
Or nate wins gets his title gets his millions and gets his rubber match with CMac because I don't see how else you entice nate to take this fight.
And hopefully after this WME and Dana get accused of Weinstein like crimes and the UFC implodes leaving only a distant memory and rizin buys up what's left of the org and we go full circle and Japan becomes the hub of MMA again.
We are all one.

If Nate could pull off a win he would leap above his brother and cement himself as a legend. A win over GSP and Conor????????????? He would get the UFC off it's ass money wise also. I like it.

What a bunch of bullshit. This fight isn't even worth pirating.

For GSP to come off a victory over a Bisping, almost immediately vacating the title because Bisping was literally the only person in that division's top 10 who was remotely beatable for GSP, to later entertain the idea of going down two divisions to fight somebody who's been sitting around doing nothing for more than a year shows how bitch made George really is. He must suck one hell of a dick for Dana to be willing to pimp him out so blatantly, so often.

I can't blame Nate for wanting a big name to fight against, trying to get that money, but fuck man. You and your brother have become the very thing you two have been bitching about for the post 3 to 5 years. Y'all selling wolf tickets like a pair of mother fuckers.

There is no hero's in my favorite sport anymore... Uncle Dana and uncle Sam have been dp'ing the sport hard...

Feels bad man...

Sadly I must agree with you, in the end the man always wins. . .

With that being said there is only one thing left to do. . .

False alarm, Nate just called Dana out and called GSP a cheater, claimed wolf tickets. Blah blah blah, too lazy to post source. I'm the night watchman keep my nose to ground, I'm the night watchman, I'm security.

I want this fight to happen. I see Nate bullying St Pierre.. The press conference will be golden. This will be the 4rth common opponent that Nick and Nate will have, if im not mistaken.

Some jap who Nate lost to(in Pancrase) and Nick knocked him out in the UFC.

JOsh Neer

Gomi

and not GSP.


That's what me memory bank is telling me. If you disagree, step up.


Nate vs 'The George'.

make it happen

''Double wrist lock,to an americana, switched to kimura,turned to figure 4,transitioning to an armbar.
while attemting an Ude-garami, & a keylock.. opponent escapes so switch to Gyaku ude-garami and a reverse keylock and get that: 'bent armlock',like a V1 armlock,a chicken wing,a some sort of paintbrush submission attempt or hammerlock or a twisting hammerlock and you win by reverse arm entanglement
