Chael Sonnen Says GSP Versus Conor McGregor Definitely Happening


UFC veteran and Bellator MMA fighter Chael Sonnen is never one who is afraid to speak his mind on just about any topic out there.

When it comes to a potential super fight between former two division champion Georges St. Pierre and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor, a confident Sonnen says the bout is definitely happening.

“It will be against Conor in what will be the biggest fight in MMA history,” Sonnen said on Beyond The Fight.

GSP has said in the past that a bout with McGregor would be the best fight for him from a financial perspective.

One issue that could hold up the super fight is which weight class it would happen at, but Sonnen has a solution for that as well.

“I know that George would do it. He’s made that clear. And I also know contrary to what some fans will say about, ‘Well, what wait class? You can only ask Conor to go up so much.’ George will go down,” Sonnen said. “Now that it has come out that Conor talked to Dana and wanted to do a 165-pound fight, George will go down to 165. I’ll speak for him. I’ll tell you he for sure will. I’m not speaking for him; he shared that with me. But I will pass it on to you. He will go to 165 if it means Conor.”

McGregor hasn’t been in the Octagon since defeating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, while GSP hasn’t fought since beating Michael Bisping at UFC 217.
