So there are rumors that Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to fight Floyd Mayweather. Sorry I’m not interested in another crossover. Possibly the greatest fight ever in UFC is/would be GSP vs Khabib. I asked
Pierre about a Khabib fight and this is what he said.
Conor McGregor one of the hardest working sport stars is scheduled to fight against UFC Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez on 11/12/16 in Madison Square Garden. The UFC returns to the Big Apple after a long absence due to union contract issues that Dana White was not going to pay. Endorsing Donald Trump and White’s speaking at the Republican National Convention, may have been the key to New York and the UFC repairing their feud over the union issues. Money talks eventually.
Here is the first edition of WORD on The Street a new segment covering the hottest trending topics. And here is my take on the pesky McGregor rumors that are currently rumbling and a little more insider chatter…
So I watched a recent UFC on FOX George St. Pierre interview where GSP said he was ready to come back but Dana White was being cheap by not wanting to update his fighting contract. The rumor is that White wants GSP to come back at the same pay rate as he fought when he left the UFC a few years ago. I sincerely hope that is not the case but learning about Dana White’s propensity of putting corporate sponsors first as well as the UFC brand being more powerful than anyone star, it is no wonder negotiations are at a stand still. George St. Pierre is too smart to lose his endorsement deals that give him more money than fighting for the UFC under the old contracts and the recent UFC deal with Reebok. So could the biggest fight in UFC history be lost because of ego and greed? Probably.
But I heard a delicious rumor that GSP was going to return and a big fight match up could happen with Conor McGregor. So I asked Sylvester Stallone his thoughts on a possible match up.
