Georges St-Pierre was ringside at UFC 196, sparking rumors throughout the UFC community that Conor McGregor had plans to call out the former welterweight champ to a "super fight" at UFC 200.
Any chance of that happening was thrown out the window when Nate Diaz took McGregor by surprise and submitted him in the second round.
Diaz sat down with Chael Sonnen on the recent edition of Sonnen's podcast, You're Welcome, to talk about how his victory over McGregor changed the course of McGregor's plan for belt domination.
"Yeah I heard (they were planning on having Conor call out GSP) but I put a big old hole in that shit. What did they think, that I'm some game they can play? I can't be fucked with, I been in the game too long. They wanted to have this big old GSP vs. McGregor bullshit, with Georges sat in the front row at UFC 196, I don't even wanna hear about that shit."
Diaz went on to comment about how his victory also pissed off a lot of people, including the UFC.
"Get the fuck outta here with that. What the fuck? I pissed off Conor McGregor, I pissed off GSP, but most of all I pissed off the UFC. Well guess what? LOL motherfuckers. Georges is full of shit, he's a bully, he was going to fight this little Irish featherweight guy? He would have held him down, that's a freak show fight man."
St-Pierre fought Nate's brother, Nick, at UFC 158... So he's very familiar with the Diaz clan.
While it's expected for GSP to return to the octagon some time this year, there's no official timeline from his camp or the UFC. In the meantime, it looks as if the UFC is going to plan a Diaz-McGregor rematch at UFC 200, which will take place on July 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Though the rematch hasn't been made official, it's expected to be announced this week.
