Zahabi: Surgery Could Motivate Return For GSP
Firas Zahabi has been in Georges St. Pierre’s corner, literally and figuratively, for a long time.
Zahabi, the head trainer at Montreal’s Tristar Gym, has been tight with GSP for many, many years and he gave MMAJunkie the inside skinny on the latest in the world of GSP.
Zahabi said he has been in contact with St. Pierre since his knee operation last week and believes that the recovery process could relight the fire inside the UFC legend, who took an indefinite leave from the sport in November, 2013.
“I think this injury, because he’s going to be away from training for so long, could cause him to want to fight again,” Zahabi said. “When your girlfriend dumps you, you want her more than ever before. MMA just kind of put him on the sidelines, and now he probably wants MMA more now than ever before. It’s the way it is – it’s human nature.”
