No, the fight isn’t booked. But there’s a betting line for it.

MMA: UFC 217-Bisping vs St-Pierre Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

While the UFC has stated that Georges St-Pierre will be fighting interim champion Robert Whittaker after GSP’s big win over Michael Bisping at UFC 217, fans continue to talk about a bout with Conor McGregor instead. That is likely one of the biggest-money fights that the UFC could book, but with the men currently being two divisions apart, it seems unlikely.

That never stops bookmakers though.

Bovada became the first to offer a line on GSP vs. McGregor, and despite a size advantage, St-Pierre is only a small favorite:

If you can’t see that, GSP is -150 and McGregor is +120.

Again, this is unlikely to happen, at least in the near future. McGregor is in negotiations to fight another interim champ, Tony Ferguson, while the UFC will try to steer GSP towards Whittaker. On the same website, McGregor is currently a -160 favorite over a +130 Ferguson, while St-Pierre is the dog in his fight - Whittaker is at -165, with GSP at +135.
