Georges St-Pierre is Latest To Eye Floyd Mayweather Bout

  • Conor Mc Gregor Floyd Mayweather Rematch

The former welterweight champ returned to the UFC after a four year hiatus to defeat Michael Bisping for the UFC middleweight title in November. He put himself on the shelf to recover and get healthy again, vacating the middleweight title in the process after just 31 days, making Whittaker the undisputed champion.

However, "GSP" did not completely seem on board with the idea as he would later be sidelined indefinitely after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a potentially serious condition.

Speaking with TSN in Canada (via MMA Fighting, h/t MMA Mania), longtime trainer and friend Firas Zahabi advised that the MMA icon would look into a return for a "big, exciting fight".

"Georges is going to get better, get back in the gym". "He's going to feel his body out and see what he wants".

Congress leaders queue-up to greet Rahul Gandhi
He expressed confidence that under Rahul Gandhi's leadership, the party would make a comeback in the entire country. Slogans of "long live Rahul" were shouted as hundreds of supporters danced and burst firecrackers.

There had been talk of a McGregor-Manny Pacquiao fight, but that talk quickly ended when UFC president Dana White threatened to sue Pacquiao, according to ESPN. St-Pierre may have become the first fighter in history to vacate a UFC belt on two separate occasions, but Zahabi said the French-Canadian's contributions to the sport far outweigh that footnote.

Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh has revealed that his most famous student's interest in rematching Floyd Mayweather Jr isn't as strong as the desire he had to exact revenge on Nate Diaz after UFC 196.

After a night on the town in New York, TMZ caught up with McGregor who said, "I think a true fight is what I want to do next".

Bleacher Report's Jonathan Snowden made the case for the bout in the wake of UFC 217, suggesting the UFC couldn't possibly be stupid enough to let such a moneymaker pass them by and that "t$3 hey should make [the] fight immediately and never look back". If McGregor decides to come back to the UFC and defend his title, it could be nearly a full year before we could get a chance to see this "mega fight" between St-Pierre and McGregor. "He's helped it grow". Because of the company and the great fighters, not just Georges, all these great fighters and the company. "But why? Because of all the greats that came before".
