While Georges St. Pierre hasn’t been in the Octagon in nearly two years, there’s been much speculation as to what it would take to get the former UFC welterweight kingpin back in the Octagon.
It has been rumored for quite some time that if GSP were to return to the Octagon, it would be for super fights, and not the UFC welterweight championship.
Three’s been no official word from GSP himself on his return, however his head coach Firas Zahabi stated recently that GSP would likely be ready to make a big splash soon.
According to GSP’s longtime ex-manager, him returning for a potential superfight with Conor McGregor isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
She spoke to Reseau Des Sports:
“Georges St. Pierre said openly that he could easily get down to 155 pounds to fight. and it is a fact that several fighters who fight at 155 pounds are bigger and walk around heavier than St-Pierre. So if McGregor becomes champion of 145 and 155 pounds, and St-Pierre takes the time to get his weight down in a healthy and intelligent way, do you not think that the UFC would not want to put on the biggest fight in its history?”
That is dependent of course on whether or not Conor McGregor defeats Rafael Dos Anjos to become the lightweight champion when the pair meet at UFC 197.
