Firas Zahabi Says GSP Might Comeback For A “Really Amazing Offer”

Former two division UFC champion Georges St. Pierre retired from professional MMA competition a short time after defeating Michael Bisping for the UFC Middleweight Title at UFC 217.

Firas Zahabi, who coached GSP throughout the majority of his professional MMA career, recently stated that GSP might make a comeback for a “really amazing offer.”

That revelation was made during a recent AMA session on Youtube (via Bloody Elbow):

“Georges is officially retired, but he still trains regularly in the gym, absolutely, all the time. We work together on a regular basis. We like to train. Just because he is retired, doesn’t mean the training has to stop. If something very interesting comes his way as an offer — this is just my opinion, I don’t want to talk for Georges — I feel Georges still has that spark in him. I think he might come back if something really amazing comes about. But other than that, I think he’s happy being retired. He’s living a good life.”

GSP has since filed retirement papers and is out of the USADA testing pool, making a potential comeback less likely than it ever has been before.
