Georges St-Pierre versus Anderson Silva at UFC 200! If only GSP could land more athletic gymnastic maneuvers then maybe UFC president Dana White would put more stock into the French Canadian’s comeback bid. Wouldn’t The Spider versus GSP at UFC 200 be the perfect cake topper for both legend’s careers?
For now GSP is rolling around on social media recording cartwheel fail videos.
From a LA Times sports report St-Pierre plans to hit the gym to work on his boxing with hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach after Thanksgiving. After the six week run of getting back in fighting shaping, GSP will make the final call on if he returns to the UFC or stays retired to a life of tumbling.
White has to little faith in GSP’s desire to come back and fight in the UFC.
“I highly doubt it’s going to happen because GSP’s been off for too long and has a ton of money,” White said. “You don’t do a six-week camp to learn if you have the hunger. You either know it or not. Robbie Lawler knows it, he’s hungry, he trains like an animal.
“You’re either hungry and an animal or you’re not.”
White said he learned from Roach of the training camp.
“It’d be great if he comes back, yes, I love Georges St-Pierre — amazing athlete — but comeback talk? I laugh at it. To be a world champion, you have to be hungry.
“That’s not GSP. Not even close.”
Started the morning landing on the wrong foot trying to perform a cartwheel / single-leg front tuck combo… Lol https://t.co/LVj9v5NXjp
