  1. Firas Zahabi says Georges St-Pierre "has lots of fights left," previous comments taken out of context

    Georges St-Pierre is not contemplating hanging up his well-worn gloves after his scheduled UFC 167 matchup with Johny Hendricks after all. That’s according to a report from Ariel Helwani on Wednesday’s edition of UFC Tonight.

    Zahabi told UFC Tonight reporter Ariel Helwani that this has been St-Pierre’s best camp in years, he is 100-percent focused on Hendricks, and he is not at all talking about any sort of exit strategy following the fight.

    "GSP has always said that if he loses the drive to really go through with a great training camp and push himself, then he will retire," Zahabi said through Helwani. "GSP's camp has been his best in years, last two not so great, because he was so rusty because of the knee injury."

    Believe it when you see it:)





    If GSP beats Johny, since returning from ACL surgery, he will have won as many gold belts as the following fighters won throughout their entire UFC careers: Jens Pulver, Renan Barao, Demetrious Johnson, Cain Velasquez, Brock Lesnar, Rich Franklin, Andrei Arlovski, and Frankie Edgar.

    Post surgery, GSP has already won at least as many UFC title fights as the following fighters have won throughout their entire UFC careers: prime JDS, prime Frank Mir, prime Shogun Rua, prime Lyoto Machida, prime Rashad Evans, prime Forrest Griffin, prime Rampage, prime Evan Tanner, prime Carlos Newton, and prime Anthony Pettis.

    That's too bad. It would really open up the division.

    GSP is in control of his own ship. I personally think he should be considering retirement. He can only hold on to that belt for so long. Why go out a shell of your former self, when you can go out on top having proven everything he needs to prove? But he knows better than I do, surely.

    When GPS beats Hendricks I think there will be a strong chance of GSP vs Anderson (whether Anderson beats Weidman or not).

    If he doesn't retire I hope we get to see him vs. Rory at some point.
     
  19. However, it seems that Zahabi’s words were either misconstrued or misunderstood, and that St-Pierre has every intention to continue on.

    Zahabi recently did an interview in French, and many in the MMA world took the translation out of context
