- If, and at this point it remains a big if, the UFC is able to bring Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz together for a summer meeting, the former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion will likely be a huge favorite. According to Bovada, St-Pierre is a 2-to-1 favorite over Diaz to come out victorious.

Reports of the two being signed for a fight have centered around UFC 227 in Los Angeles to serve as the co-main event to Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw for the bantamweight title. Diaz is an 8-to-5 underdog vs. GSP.

St-Pierre has not fought since last November, when he bested Michael Bisping for the middleweight title. Diaz has stayed on the shelf waiting for the right fight since a 2016 defeat vs. Conor McGregor.

- According to Eddie Alvarez, he is now ready to face Dustin Poirier. The former UFC lightweight champion sent out a message via Twitter saying he would see Poirier in Calgary at UFC on FOX 30. Previously, Alvarez had said he was waiting for a new contract to be presented before he signed to meet Poirier.

UFC on FOX 30 takes place July 28 from the Scotiabank Saddledome. The card currently features Jose Aldo vs. Jeremy Stephens and Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Tecia Torres.
