Robbie Lawler has been the most successful UFC welterweight champion since Georges St-Pierre stepped away from the sport back in 2013.
While the reports and rumors of “Rush” making his way back to fight in the Octagon keep popping up, another source very close to Georges has revealed some information regarding the former champion’s future.
Lapresse.ca reported that St-Pierre’s close friend and mentor, Kristof Midoux spoke about what could be next regarding the future for “GSP” in an interview he did with GlobeMMA.
While Rodolphe Beaulieu, St-Pierre’s manager says that Georges is the only person who truly knows if he will ever fight again, Midoux has a lot of influence on “Rush” and says he would push him to fight with the current UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler in his return. Midoux also said that if Georges were to beat Lawler and still wants to continue fighting, he would like to see Georges rematch Johny Hendricks and win in a more decisive matter and put their controversial first fight to rest.
Midoux states that he has plans to put “GSP” through a hard training test against tough competition that will not take it easy on the former champ to see if he still has what it takes to compete with the world’s best fighters.
Midoux said that they were looking to see if New York or Las Vegas would be the possible location of a return fight, but ultimately it all comes down to timing and if St-Pierre still has the hunger to compete.
