BREAKING NEWS | Conor McGregor’s Next Opponent Is Set! and It’s Not Nate Diaz!
UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is fresh off a razor close decision victory over Nate Diaz just a week ago and is already being booked for an upcoming UFC PPV. Sources close to the situation and inside Tristar Gym have confirmed that the fight originally planned for UFC 200 but ruined by Nate Diaz, former UFC Champion Georges St. Pierre will make his UFC return against none other than Conor McGregor. The bout is to be contested at 170lbs. No word on what will happen with Conor’s featherweight title in the meantime.
McGregor is scheduled to see a doctor this week to clear his foot of any injury. If cleared, the fight is planned to be the main event for the UFC’s Madison Square Garden Debut and the back up plan is UFC Toronto. St. Pierre will be live on UFC Tonight Wednesday with a “Special Announcement”. Stay tuned.
