Olivier Aubin-Mercier Wants GSP to Call Out Conor McGregor

Olivier Aubin-Mercier Wants GSP to Call Out Conor McGregor

Everyone knows Georges St-Pierre touched down back into the UFC to challenge for the middleweight title against Michael Bisping. He’s gone on record saying that if he wins, he’s contractually…

“TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I WOULD NOT [KEEP FIGHTING], BUT GEORGES [ST-PIERRE] IS TRULY A REAL FIGHTER, A REAL WARRIOR, A REAL INSPIRATION. HE MAY FIGHT AGAIN, I’M NOT SURE. I THINK WHAT WOULD BE PLAUSIBLE IS TO CALL OUT CONOR [MCGREGOR] AFTER [THE FIGHT WITH MICHAEL BISPING]. THAT’S WHAT I WOULD DO. CALL OUT CONOR. I THINK FOR THE UFC, IT’S A REALLY SMART FIGHT TO DO TOO, SINCE IT’S A WIN-WIN OF THEM. A WIN-WIN KIND OF, FOR THE SHORT TIME. IF GEORGES WINS, WELL, HE’S THE GREATEST FIGHTER OF ALL TIME. IF CONOR WINS, HE IS TOO. AND IF GSP WINS, I DON’T THINK PEOPLE WOULD HOLD IT AGAINST CONOR.”

“[GEORGES ST-PIERRE] DIDN’T TALK TO ME [ABOUT FIGHTING CONOR MCGREGOR]. I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT FIRAS [ZAHABI] HAD TALKED ABOUT IT. I THOUGHT I WAS THE FIRST ONE TO THINK ABOUT IT, I’M KIND OF DISAPPOINTED. I THINK CONOR IS A SMART FIGHT FOR ANYBODY IN ANY DIVISION RIGHT NOW. YEAH, EXACTLY, [A FIGHT WITH CONOR MCGREGOR WOULD BE THE BIGGEST FIGHT TO MAKE]. I THINK THE PROMOTION OF THE [A FIGHT WITH ROBERT WHITTAKER] WOULD NOT BE LIKE BISPING AGAINST HIM OR CONOR AGAINST HIM SINCE BOTH GSP AND WHITTAKER ARE HUMBLE GUYS. UNFORTUNATELY, FANS DON’T REALLY LIKE THIS.” OLIVIER AUBIN-MERCIER ON THE TSN MMA SHOW.
