He’s coming back, that’s almost a guarantee. Legendary UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has made noise in the past few weeks regarding a possible return to the Octagon, and who better to come back against than the UFC’s biggest star?
A GSP vs McGregor superfight would be even bigger than the Diaz bout and would shatter all sorts of records. GSP hasn’t fought in over three years and has spent a large chunk of his time away from the cage dedicated to making movies in Hollywood.
He’s going to be rusty, that’s for sure and McGregor could capitalize on that for another high-profile victory, making this potential showdown worthwhile.
There are rumors swirling around that McGregor could face GSP at the UFC’s first event in New York — UFC 205 — but as of now, nothing has been confirmed. We’ll have to wait and see in the next few weeks when things start to take shape.
