GSP-Nate Diaz Rumored For UFC 227
Georges St. Pierre wanted a legacy fight, and it seems the UFC is ready to give him one at UFC 227 in Los Angeles.
According to UFC President Dana White, the former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion and Nate Diaz would be one of the two top fights for the August Pay Per View, with the rumored interim light heavyweight title showdown between Alexander Gustafsson and Luke Rockhold being the other.
“It is true and they (Diaz/GSP) would fight at 155-pounds,” White said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast.
“There are rumors, 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.”
GSP’s lightweight debut aside and a light heavyweight clash between Rockhold and Gustafsson, White is hoping for two more big fights for the August 4th pay per view.
“In my perfect world, if everything goes perfect, and nothing ever goes perfect in this world, [it will be] Dillashaw vs Garbrandt, GSP vs Diaz would be the co-main, Gustafsson vs Rockhold and Brunson vs Antonio Carlos Jr. It’s very interesting,” says White.
