GSP Talks McGregor-Mayweather, Bisping
Georges St. Pierre is back in the spotlight after a three-year hiatus from the UFC. In his time off, he’s watched Conor McGregor take his spot as the sport’s biggest star. Now that he’s back, GSP has offered his opinion on McGregor and his chances in a rumored boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
“I think it will happen,” St-Pierre told RT Sports. “I know Floyd will never fight Conor in a mixed martial arts fight, but Conor could fight Floyd in a boxing match. I don’t think he’s going to win, I don’t think he’s going to win at all, but I think he wants to do it and he’s going to make a lot of money out of it.
“If he loses, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to lose if it happens, the odds are not in his favor,” St-Pierre explained. “But if he manages to survive, it could be like a win for him. Because after he’s going to start talking, ‘Hey, I’ve stepped into your game, why don’t you step into mine?’ So it depends not only on the result, but how it’s done. It all depends on how things play out.”
St. Pierre, who was in Russia to corner a teammate during a smaller MMA show, also spoke about his upcoming fight with middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Though the fight has yet to be scheduled, GSP says that a fall date is likely.
