"Not even close", White said when asked how close he was to making a fight between St-Pierre and McGregor. St-Pierre has a multi-million dollar endorsement deal with Under Armour but all UFC competitors have been required to wear Reebok fight gear since UFC 189 in July 2015.

We spoke with Bisping back in October when the UFC was still trying to put the fight together and "The Count" told us GSP was the one causing all the problems.

This matchup may also come as a surprise to some as White was also on record stating St-Pierre could potentially drop down to lightweight ahead of his return.

St-Pierre admitted last year that he was anxious he would regret, years down the line, not coming back, especially because he felt "right now that I'm at my best ..."
