Earlier this month, UFC president Dana White announced that a blockbuster fight between Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz was in the works for Aug. 4 at UFC 227. Momentum for the matchup even reached a point where betting odds were released and Diaz responded to the rumblings with a very Diaz-like Facebook post accusing St-Pierre of steroid use and accusing White of selling “wolf tickets” to fight fans.

Ultimately, that was the end of it though. The matchup never came to fruition.

However, speaking Wednesday during an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, St-Pierre revealed that discussions of a potential UFC 227 return against Diaz were very much a real thing, and that “GSP” and his team at Tristar actually contemplated the idea.
