Report | Georges St-Pierre could return at UFC 227 in Los Angeles
Former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA) could potentially return to the octagon on August 4 in Los Angeles.
According to a report from Mike Russell, a fight between “GSP” and “The Stockton Slugger” Nate Diaz is being discussed for UFC 227.
Hearing GSP vs. Nate Diaz is possibly being planned for August 4. Guess no Georges-Conor or Georges-Khabib fight in the near future if true.

Georges St-Pierre was last seen in action at November’s UFC 217 event in New York where he choked out Michael Bisping to become the promotions middleweight champion.
Just 31 days later, the Canadian superstar decided to vacate his newly acquired 185-pound title after being diagnosed with colitis.
As for Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA) the pride of Stockton, California has not competed inside the octagon since suffering a highly controversial majority decision loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 202 in August of 2016.
Prior to the setback, “The Stockton Slugger” had submitted the aforementioned Conor McGregor in the second-round of their UFC 196 event headliner.
BJPENN.com reached out to the Diaz camp regarding the recent rumors earlier today but have yet to hear anything back from the camp at this time.
