“If I beat Conor (McGregor) or I beat GSP (Georges St-Pierre) which one do you think is bigger for my legacy? Of course it is GSP. GSP is the greatest athlete to ever compete in the UFC. He’s the former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion. I hear that he wants to come back and that he can make 155-pounds. I respect this guy. It would be an honor to fight him.”
