Before Nate's fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 196, he expressed interest in a fight with Georges St. Pierre.

After the fight, Firas Zahabi responded on twitter stating, "let me see what I can do...I know @GeorgesStPierre was very impressed by your performance. & So was I."

Ain't gonna happen. I'm tired of all this GSP talk.

He did an interview recently where he explained his OCD is so bad that he has trouble operating on a daily basis and completing mundane tasks and it's one of the two main reasons why he retired.

He is not fighting. As much as I would love to see him step back into the Octagon. It isn't happening.

Everyone keeps talking GSP @ UFC 200. I'm sorry but I don't believe it until its official. And GSP vs Nate, unlikely.

Ring rust is real. I ain't trying to see GSp in a title fight.

I'm not putting any belief in GSP coming back until a bout is made official by the UFC themselves.

But I think this is more likely of a return fight for GSP then a title fight with Lawler. I think he'd like Nate as a tune up fight then see where he goes from there, whether he wants to fight for a title again or just stick to fights like this one.

IF this does happen (and that's a big IF) I could see it being a main card bout on UFC 200.

agreed, until Georges himself says he has a fight, there is not much to talk about.

It's a move in the right direction but nothing official so can't really get excited over it...

Ive always been a big fan of GSP myself. Him and Chuck were the 2 biggest reasons I started getting into MMA awile back.

Where are all the Joe Warren nutthuggers? Oh wait there's only 1.

When Lawler took the belt there was no denying the fact GSP had become a boring fighter.

I shouldn't turd the punch bowl tho... I'd be excited to see him come back even if it was just to jab a wrestler or wrestle a striker.

"514" just doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

Too bad he wasn't from the '306'. They've been throwing that around for awhile now.

Here's their shop . Should buy some merch.

Here's their promo vid:







That video's 5 years old, that place is even more improved since then. Better shop, better indoor sk8 park, better breakdance floor, better dj area. The '306' is my hometown, grew up there my whole life. Regina, Sask.....it can be pretty 'Stockton like' with the highest crime rate per capita in all of Canada. Don't live there anymore though.
