In an interview with The BBC MMA show (via MMA Fighting), UFC President Dana White said that he’s not interested in a superfight between Georges St-Pierre and the winner of the UFC 229 bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. Here are highlights:

On the possible superfight: “I’m not interested in that fight. He knows that and I’ve told him that many times. He was the 170-pound champion, he moved up to 185 pounds to take on Michael Bisping – and put in his agreement that he would absolutely defend the title at 185 – and then just dumped the title. I’m not interested. Georges St-Pierre is looking for one-off fights where he can make a lot of money – which is smart, that’s what he should do – but we’re not interested in that.”

On a possible return from GSP: “I’m interested in [St-Pierre coming back]. I’m not interested in that fight. I’m interested in Georges St-Pierre coming back at 170, not at 155 pounds. I don’t know [if he will come back though]. He’s not too excited about fighting or defending his title or anything like that. I don’t know if he’ll ever fight again.”
