Team GSP Wants 'Big Mouth' Conor McGregor In UFC Mega-Fight

Georges St-Pierre wants one more fight before calling it a day, and it's a big one.

Georges St-Pierre was sort of retired after beating Michael Bisping at UFC 217 to become a two-weight world champion.

He subsequently vacated his belt before walking away from the famed Octagon.

But he's itching for another fight. Speaking on his behalf, Freddie Roach claims 'GSP' is after one more fight in the form of 'big mouth' Conor McGregor.

"I think one more. Just one," the legendary boxing trainer told Brendan Schaub when asked if he thinks St-Pierre fights again via Bloody Elbow.

And he wants it to be against Conor McGregor.

"The Irish boy. He's got a big mouth," Roach said.

St-Pierre appears to be slimming down to 155 lbs after a stint at welterweight & middleweight, and his new diet is working wonders.

"We'll make the weight. Georges is on a new diet; it's doing really great," he added.

"We wanted to prove that we could go up in the higher weight division, and we did that. Then Dana got mad that we dropped that title.

"We want to go the lower weight now and be a three-time world champion, three weight divisions."

Of course, Khabib Nurmagomedov holds the UFC lightweight title and he's expected to return to action in October/November.

McGregor, meanwhile, is set to return in April after being handed a retrospective six-month ban by Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The Irishman is eyeing up a lightweight bout against Donald Cerrone.

Who do you want to see St-Pierre face next? Let us know.
