Firas Zahabi Discusses Future of Georges St-Pierre, Doesn’t See 2015 Bout Happening

Georges St. Pierre

Georges St-Pierre’s manager recently said that the former welterweight champ has no plans in place to fight again, and according to the fighter’s coach, he doesn’t see GSP fighting any time soon.

GSP recently got the go ahead from his doctors to start training again, after he incurred another ACL tear early last year. Although the Canadian star has been back in the gym, however, here is what St-Pierre’s coach Firas Zahabi recently told MMA Junkie.com:

“Georges won’t be fighting in 2015,” Zahabi said. “I really doubt it. He’s got a lot of things going on and his own projects, and I don’t think he’s coming back in 2015. Me and Georges train regularly, but we don’t talk about the politics.

“I think he’s going to fight when he’s ready to fight and he feels like fighting. I think he’s got plenty of years of training left in him. I don’t think he could retire from training.”

So. There you have it. While a lot of folks want to see GSP make another run, it certainly doesn’t look like the 33 year-old plans to make a comeback in the coming months.

GSP hasn’t fought now since November, 2013, when he earned a split decision win over Johny Hendricks. After the bout the renowned fighter said he was taking a break from fighting, and while he didn’t retire, he hasn’t committed to scrapping again.
