Could Conor McGregor's Return Lead To UFC's Biggest Fight Ever?

Greg Hardy

Last week, at a press conference in Australia, former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre shared his interest in dropping down to lightweight to battle the victor of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor's UFC 229 lightweight title fight (see St-Pierre's prediction for the fight here). It's a legacy upgrade and it's good money - it's gonna be a big fight. While some may have assumed White would grow dollar signs in his eyes while gushing about the potential to promote St-Pierre facing off with either an undefeated Nurmagomedov or the company's biggest star in McGregor, he instead seemed as annoyed as some fans are at St-Pierre's history of gathering titles only to relinquish them. I want equity. I want ownership.

In the months since giving up the title, St-Pierre has explained in-depth that bulking up to 185 pounds from his longtime frame as a welterweight led to some stomach issues.

Manchester United, however, remain favourites to sign him in the long term amid uncertainty over Pogba's future. Meanwhile, United legend Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has urged United to keep Pogba.

While White isn't too interested in seeing Georges St-Pierre challenge the Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor victor, he is interested in getting him back in the Octagon soon - ideally when the UFC returns to Toronto on December 8. "He's not a part owner", White said. "He might as well be though. He's making so much f-king money he might as well be a part owner".

McGregor's disclosed purse will be revealed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission ahead of his fight on October 6 plus the former two-division champion will also receive pay-per-view compensation for what's expected to be the biggest card for the UFC in 2018. In all likelihood, the victor of Nurmagomedov-McGregor will face the victor of the UFC 230 lightweight fight in Madison Square Garden between Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier.

"Dana White please ask Donald Trump give my father a visa", wrote Nurmagomedov in an Instagram post, captioning the photo of UFC boss White together with American President Donald Trump. "If you look at when Conor's deal got done in NY and when we announced the fight". Sound off in the comments and let us know!
