Georges St-Pierre vs Nate Diaz? Coach Firas Zahabi is working on it

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Yeah, let's skip the Canadian loophole pleasantries and get right to Firas Zahabi's response to a recent call out:

Sound crazy?

It probably shouldn't considering Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was angling for a potential showdown between Nate Diaz and welterweight champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 200, thanks to the Stockton slugger's submission win over Conor McGregor at UFC 196.

Watch the replay here.

Yes, it requires mixed martial arts (MMA) fans to scrub this massacre from their memories -- as well as this declaration -- but if that's what it takes for Georges St-Pierre to get back inside the Octagon, then so be it. "Rush" was in attendance for "McGregor vs. Diaz" and reportedly buried the hatchet with the ZUFFA overlords.

Maybe it will lead to another one of these!

That said, does this sound like a fight you would be willing to pay for at UFC 200?
